Elizabeth Marie Parlet, 35, passed away on July 26 after a long illness.

She was born on March 20, 1988 in Columbus, Ohio. She is survived by her mother and stepfather Cathy (Riepenhoff) and James Corcella, father and stepmother Jeffry and Lydia (Scharf) Parlet, sister Anna Parlet and brother John Corcella, Uncle Thomas (Mary) Riepenhoff, Aunt Janis (Robert) Sunderhaus, Aunt Lynn (John) Murray, and Aunt Jean Rose, Cousins Tracy, Katie, Carly, John, Amy, Tess, Bobby, Mary, Johnny, Mickey, Mindy, Marty and Tracy, and her boyfriend Robby Nungester.

Lizzy graduated from Bexley High School and Ohio University and received her Master's Degree in Social Work from The Ohio State University.

Lizzy was known for her quick, often sarcastic, wit and her intense loyalty. As a young girl she took up tap dancing, which fit her energy and joy perfectly. She had a strange love of Egyptology and medieval churches.

Her time in Spain and support of the Basque people were important to her.

She cared deeply about social justice, fighting for women's rights and the LGBTQ+ community. Few know, but Lizzy holds the record for most boxes of cereal eaten at Camp Fitch. She loved the hustle and bustle of working in the service industry and her coworkers through the years. No one can count how many times she saw Dave Matthews Band or measure her joy at seeing Tedeschi Trucks Band. Lizzy was active in high school and volleyball was her thing. Over the years she ate chicken Caesar salad at every restaurant in Columbus. She loved to read, especially David Sedaris, and had an exhaustive knowledge of obscure actors and directors from several decades of movie watching. She was a true lizard and loved lying in the sun by the pool-or pond. She will be missed.

Calling hours will be held on Thursday, August 3, 2023 from 4pm until 8pm at Schoedinger Funeral Home at 5360 E. Livingston Ave. in Columbus.
