Liz Pietsch passed away on 27 July and a beautiful celebration of her life occurred at her funeral on the 5 August. Liz commenced her service to Lutheran education in 1990 at Cornerstone College before moving to Unity College and the LEVNT office. Liz was always passionate about learning and what it means to be a teacher in a Lutheran school, working in partnership with parents, for the development of the student in their spiritual, social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth.
She has made a considerable difference in the lives of numerous teachers and the focus of Lutheran schools. Liz’s love of people, professional strength and experience and her shining Christian faith have been hallmarks of her service to Lutheran education, in fact, for the duration of her life’s career for Lutheran education. We give thanks for Liz, we will miss her greatly but her passion and commitment for Lutheran education will energise us daily.
