Liz (Sugar) was born July 16, 1927 to Raymond and Katherine (Duckworth) Brewton in Clay, Texas. She attended grade school in Clay and graduated from Navasota High School in 1945. She then worked at Navratil Music and Jaster Jewelry. On October 14, 1950, she was married to Clarence Herzog in St. John’s Lutheran Church of Prairie Hill by Pastor Gogolin.

Upon returning home to Clay in 1976, they became members of First Lutheran Church in Somerville and were members until their deaths.

Liz was an avid sportswoman who loved to hunt, especially deer and birds. She also enjoyed fishing with Clarence by her side. In the summer, you could find Liz canning tomatoes which grew abundantly in their garden. Liz had a great love for her family and a special place in her heart for her nieces and nephews.
