Lizabeth F. Brott

Lizabeth, 62, passed away on July 20, 2020. She was raised in Vermontville, Michigan where she was an honors graduate of Maple Valley High School. After obtaining her bachelor’s degree at MSU, she went on to complete her graduate degree at Cooley Law School. Liz would always remain a die-hard Spartan fan. Liz and Tom Brott wed in 1979.  Since that time, they’ve enjoyed full professional lives, golfing, traveling, hosting and participating in numerous family gatherings, and loving their house-pet poodles.  Liz was an avid flower gardener and animal lover

Liz had an extensive career. She spent 7 years as an Ingham County Sheriff’s Deputy, then went on to become an investigator for the State of Michigan’s Medical and Pharmacy licensing division. Recognized for her expertise and work ethic, she was promoted to the position of Regional Vice President of Risk Management for Proassurance.  While serving in this position, Liz was a sought-after speaker at numerous national medical risk management conferences and forums

Liz was preceded in death by her parents, William and Jarene; and her brother, David Fox; Brother-in-law, Don Tharp. She is survived by her husband, Thomas Brott; brothers, Chris Fox, and Ted (Pam) Fox; sisters, Katy Fox, Laurine Fox, Mary (Ed) Zbik, Anne Crow, Susan (Andy) Joostberns, and Sharon (Jerry) Harris; Sister-in-law, Patricia Tharp; many nieces and nephews, and grand-nieces and nephews. Liz will always be remembered by her family for her graciousness, sense of humor and love-of-life – including her phrase to describe anything extraordinary as “trip the lights fantastic!”

Liz’s family will receive friends for a memorial visitation at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that people make contributions to The Capital Area Humane Society, in her honor.

OMG – I just asked someone for her address for our high school reunion. I was a schoolmate of Liz’s for all of our school years. She was a joy, perky, smart, pretty and fun to be with. How unfortunate that she left us so young. My condolences to her family. She will be missed.

Liz gave me a chance that led to a life long career. I learned many lessons from working for her and I know those lessons have made me a better “boss” for my staff. For the lessons and many other memories I’m thankful to have known her.

Absolutely broken-hearted to hear of Liz’s passing. I remember Liz as a cheerleader to her high school lions, as a majorette to the MV marching band, and as an upbeat, capable, selfless woman whose zeal for life made everyone happy. Sincere condolences to her husband, family, and caretakers who battled the challenges of this disease. Liz was a bright light taken from us too soon.

I have to reach out to Tom. I am going through similar experiences like he must have right now. So I can relate. Liz background is like a close carbon copy of my own.Similar age, No children, love dogs and had a strong marriage. Why do bad things happen to good people? My fairy tale life is being tested. Sickness throws a monkey wrench in future plans. Not expected. Reading about her hit home.
