Miech, Elizabeth (Kornely), 89, formerly of Woodcrest Drive, Riverside, died peacefully on January 18, 2024 at Saint Elizabeth Home, East Greenwich surrounded by members of her loving family.

She enjoyed her yearly winter vacations in Vermont and spending time with her family by a roaring fire and playing countless games of Tiles. She was an avid Boston Celtics fan, who watched every game. Her children fondly remember her listening ear, and daily love and care.

Online Condolences


  1. Dear family,

    Your mom frequently attended the Communion Services I held at St. Elizabeth’s home and when she couldn’t I would bring her Holy Communion to her in her room. Two weeks ago I went to see her and she was sleeping in the chair. Today I learned of her passing.

    Your mom is an amazing woman and she has amazing children and great grand children. You all brought great joy to her heart. I’m sorry for your loss and I pray for you at the time of your loss and for the gentle repose of her soul.

    Deacon Steve
