Grillo, Elizabeth (née: Robinson) of St. Charles, MO, was fortified with the Sacraments of the Holy Mother Church on Friday, April 15, 2016, at the age of 37. She was the loving wife of Vincent “Vince” Grillo; beloved daughter of William and Nancy Dawson; devoted mother of Tyler Anthony Robinson, A.J. Grillo, and Jackson Grillo; dear sister of John Dawson, Billy Dawson, and Katy Robinson; and cherished aunt of Jeremy Bono, Chloe Henry, Gracie Henry, Randy Dawson, Danielle Kaatman, Zachary Dawson, Riley Dawson, and Travis Dawson. Elizabeth is also survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. She is preceded in death by her brother George Dawson, her grandparents Doris and Richard Small, her mother-in-law Gloria Grillo, and sister-in-law Lori Ule.

Izzy was a member of St. Robert Bellarmine and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Churches. She loved her boys so much and was the quintessential “soccer mom”. Izzy had a spunky personality, loved life, and lived for spending quality time with her family and friends. She will truly be missed by all who knew her.

    candle 1TO My sweet, beautiful, spunky, crazy and wild big sister…….you were my rock and we had so many plans together that I promise I will keep and share with your boy’s. Who’s going to help me put mom in that nasty nursing home and who’s going to make fun of mom with me?!?!?! It’s so not fair my girls have to grow up without their favorite Auntie “Sissy” who I swear loves you more than me. We will always hold you close to our hearts and not a day will go by that we won’t think of you. We love you so very much and it’s never GOODBYE but SEE YOU LATER YOU SEXY BITCH!!!!!!!!

    candle 1Liz! What a person, always fun, true, caring & always a friend. Your way of putting things in your own way will be missed . Greatly missed! You fought battles and so far won, you put your fight into everything and everyone to make sure we were all ok. To the three boys she raised , she is part of you , cry when you need to and talk to someone when you need to your mom will always be there to comfort your need , for you three boys are her sun and moon . To the family always know you have the fight to keep going

    candle 1Eizzy( My Homie aka Hooker), I am blessed to have had you in my life for sooo many years. I will miss your beautiful smile, sarcasm, laugh and just having you around when I need to talk. Your memory will always be alive in our hearts and I will share all our stories with the boys as time passes. I love you and will miss you so much but one day we shall see each other again.

    candle 2Oh Lizzy…

    I still can’t believe that you are gone. Still trying to wrap my mind around how. I’m going to miss those beautiful eyes, your smile, your conversation and hearing you say “You betta tell that MF he betta put a ring on it.” Lol. Self Pay isn’t going to be the same without you let alone everyday life. I love you my sweet lady and until we meet again I’ll keep those candles burning for you! Rest In Peace Sweet Angel.

    Love Always,

    Sad to hear of Liz’s passing. I know she loved her children and family very much. I was lucky enough to have her in Class at NCT. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and children.

    REST IN PEACE LIZ…I didn’t work with you long but the impact was for a lifetime. When I heard you were sick I really didn’t want to believe that it was your time to go but I prayed that you were receiving the WORD OF GOD in your final days here on earth. I pray your family may find comfort in the confusion, peace in the anger and JOY in the Pain because you truly lived your life to the fullest as we all should. FLY HIGH ON THE WINGS OF LOVE because you earned this flight…

    candle 1Liz, you touched so many peoples lives in such a short period of time of knowing you. It was great getting to know you and sharing some laughs in our training class at SSM along with keeping in touch periodically even when new positions took us in different directions. You will truly be missed but never forgotten! Always grateful for you….Ryan Hendricks

    Rest in Peace Liz.

    I will always remember Liz helping me. Not only did she help when asked but she would always take a moment to stop by my desk to ask if I needed additional assistance. To the family of Liz, I truly appreciated what she did for me any many ways.

    candle 1Liz rest in peace, I’m just sitting here thinking about all those conversations we had over the last couple of months. You were so happy and your conversations were always so uplifting. I can still see that beautiful smile and positive attitude. We had fun in training when we first started SSM and your spirit will totally be missed but never forgotten. I can see you flying on those beautiful wings into Heaven arriving at those pearly gates and them slowly opening up so you can enter. I am sending you a big hug as well as my best wishes.

    candle 4It’s been a year…. think of you everyday. We know you have been looking down on your family and making sure they are ok. I love seeing your scores in the games that I play (Cookie Jam) You were pretty good at that game as I can never seem to beat you! Your phone number is still in my phone, even though I got a new one and lost the majority of my contacts. Oh I wish I could hear your sarcastic sweet voice again. I know I will again someday, Until then….love you!
