Elizabeth Magdelenna Nunez Poell

Elizabeth Magdelenna Nunez Poell was born in South Lake Tahoe October 13, 1966. Most people knew her by Liz. She grew up in South Lake Tahoe and lived in Gardnerville NV for 25 years. Liz was a baker and cake decorator. She graduated from Carrington Nursing School but went back to doing what she loved… baking. She is a mother of 5 beautiful children, Emily, Maggie, John, Lizzie, and Alaina. She also leaves behind Fred Nunez, Mary and Chris Kuijpers. Liz was a loved individual to so many. Liz had a heart of pure gold and would put a complete stranger before herself. Her spirit and legacy will be carried on in her children and those she touched most. December 5th was a supposed to be a day of celebration as her daughter was graduating from UNR, instead it turned out to be a day of tragedy as Elizabeth suffered a massive heart attack. She will now be rejoined with her loving father, Robert Poell. Elizabeth’s Celebration of Life will be held at St. Theresa’s Catholic Church in South Lake Tahoe CA on Monday December 14th at 12:30pm. Burial and reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, please make donations towards the http://www.gofundme.com account set up to help support her family, especially her youngest 11 year old daughter.
