Elizabeth Daly

Elizabeth Daly, of Weston, MA, passed away at age 88 on March 24, 2021 at her home. Elizabeth (known to family and friends as Betsey) was born in Springfield, MA and at age four moved with her family to Brookline, MA where she was raised. She graduated from Brookline High School in 1950. Elizabeth earned her bachelor’s degree at Sarah Lawrence College, majoring in French. She proceeded to Columbia University, where she earned a master’s degree in French Literature. Soon after graduating, Elizabeth found work in New York City as an editorial assistant for an encyclopedia publisher. Showing a flair for technical writing, she was soon elevated to Writer and Editor positions. Elizabeth married Julian Daly in 1962, and shortly afterward the couple moved to the Boston area, eventually settling in Weston, MA. Elizabeth enjoyed several hobbies. As a girl, Elizabeth adored horseback riding, and developed a lifelong affinity for animals and nature. She also loved classical music and was a skilled violinist. She played in numerous chamber music groups and amateur orchestras over many years. Elizabeth studied Romance languages, and was fluent in French, Italian, and Spanish. Over the years, Elizabeth and Julian enjoyed European vacations where Elizabeth would make use of her multilingualism. Later in life, Elizabeth rekindled her writing skills and wrote various articles for the Weston-Wayland Town Crier, including pieces promoting animal rights and urging responsible use of organic pesticides. Elizabeth is survived by her daughter Victoria, and her husband, Alan Schneiderman; daughter Joanna, and her husband, Jay Fitzgerald; grandsons, Samuel, Benjamin, and Zeb Fitzgerald; and her brother, Joel Katz. She was predeceased by her husband, Julian Daly; and her brother Moshe Katz. Elizabeth was laid to rest at Linwood Cemetery in Weston, where there was a private graveside service.
