Elizabeth Colletti was born and raised in DeRidder, La. She met her loving husband while working at MasterChef. After getting married to Saverio Joel Colletti, she gave birth to two children, Joel Reece Colletti and Lacey Lee Colletti Davidson. She lived in several different locations throughout her marriage but always called DeRidder, La her home. She spent most of her life working hard, so she could give her children everything she could. She was most proud of her two children and six grandchildren. As she got older, she dedicated her life and time to loving her grandbabies. In the springtime, she could be found at the ballpark cheering on her Angels. They were her best accomplishment.
She was preceded in death by her parents, George Robert Shafer and Gloria Elizabeth Clemons Shafer and sisters, Sharon J. Shafer-Miller and Ramona L. Shafer-Davis.

Shafer of DeRidder, La; sisters, Paula Shafer of DeRidder, La and Katherine “Kathy” Shafer-Swift of Magnolia, TX and six grandchildren, Alyssa Bailey Davidson, Ayla MacKenzie Davidson, Aydan Sawyer Davidson, Wyatt Brandon Colletti, Brianna Rose Colletti and Sophia Rayne Colletti.
