Elizabeth "Beth" A. (Blizard) Darcy

April 30, 1944 ~ November 24, 2020 (age 76)

Elizabeth A. "Beth" Blizard, 76, died Tuesday, November 24, in Webster Manor Nursing Home, following a period of declining health. She is survived by her husband of 52 years, Joseph W. Darcy; two daughters, Erin Lewis, of Douglas, and Mariellen Darcy, of Sturbridge; five grandchildren, Rebecca, Brett and Brooke Belanger, and Liberty and Ellie Lewis; three brothers, Gordon and Sally Blizard, and Brian and David Blizard, in Florida. She was predeceased by her brothers, Alan, William and Kenneth, and her sisters, Linda and Margie.

Beth was born in Whitinsville, April 30, 1944, a daughter of Allen and Irma (Burke) Blizard. She lived many years in Uxbridge before moving to Sturbridge 15 years ago. She graduated from Northbridge High School in 1962, and from the Burbank Hospital School of Nursing. Beth's life journey led her down several diverse and interesting paths. She was a pharmaceutical nurse, a special education teacher at the Glavin Center, a school bus driver, and a CDL driving instructor.

Beth loved music. She sang with the "Messengers", and would offer a song at any occasion. She played the violin, accordian and harmonica, and loved to roller skate. In recent years, she especially enjoyed being a member of the Class of '62 Golden Girls.

Calling Hours will be held from 6:30-8pm, Monday, November 30. Funeral Services will be private.

I will always remember Beth as smiling, ready with a humorous tale, and willing to sing for you any time, any place.  She was a joy to be around!  Gone too soon but sure to be singing among the choirs of angels above.  She will be missed by all. A great classmate and friend.

Beth had a beautiful voice, mischievous personality and a wonderful sense of humor.
She was always outgoing and friendly and very much the life of the party.
I'm so glad I had the opportunity to have lunch with her and a few other good friends several years ago.
She will be missed.

I remember Beth well and going through School with her. My mother met her and thought the world of her. She was also a person of faith in God, and in this world and time, that is truly the only real and strong hope we have. We will miss seeing her at our reunions, but because of her faith in Jesus, she has received her inheritance God has promised those who have faith in him. May God bless her family with grace and peace during the trying time ahead.
