She was predeceased by her parents John and Mary Costa, sister Hilda Costa and brother Antone DaCosta, as well as her son, David Almeida.

Elizabeth was a  member of the former St Bernadette Church where she had many friends. She was very devoted to the church and was sacrosanct at morning masses. In addition to this, she sang in the choir. 

As a dear friend of Fr. James Murphy and the Murphy family, Liz was always ready to lend a helping hand to family members and to Fr. Murphy's ministry.  She often assisted Fr. Jim Murphy and her dear friend Fr. Joe Morris of the Holy Cross Fathers in Dartmouth in their work with the church.  She performed secretarial work, preparations for fundraisers, and religious retreats for the  Holy Cross Fathers. Elizabeth also helped her dear friend Maria Rocha by doing secretarial work for Mrs. Rocha’s ministry. Liz was extremely dedicated to the church and was always available to lend a hand whenever help was needed.

Liz loved visiting and traveling with her religious friends. She also loved breakfast with friends, cooking, raising orchids, attending/assisting with prayer circles, and helping anyone in need.
