Liz was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky. She attended Atherton Highschool, The University Of Louisville, and was a vet assistant to Dr. Lynn Horrar in the Highlands for 9 years until she finally listened to her Nonnie and went back to school to get a degree. She graduated from Mid-America College Of Funeral Services in March of 2018 and was lucky enough to join the crew here at Naville & Seabrook in 2020. Liz loves to write personal obituaries, has what some would call an obsessive eye for detail, and is honored to be able to serve this community as a proud part of the Naville & Seabrook team.
A lifelong resident of the area and 1977 graduate of New Albany High School, Walter has been a member of our team since 2011.
If there was ever a "jack of all trades" , Walter fits the bill. Our families often comment that it made things a litter easier having a familar face there to help them through a difficult time.
