Remembering Liz Fillo For Her Talent and Generosity

To the Editor:

I became friendly with Liz Fillo about six years ago while exercising on an adjacent bicycle at the gym. We had friends in common and I knew of her reputation as a singer and performer.

I was organizing evenings for The Friends of Princeton Public Library that would be auctioned at our yearly gala, “Beyond Words.” I asked Liz if she would do a cabaret act with music from The Great American Song Book. She readily agreed and it was a wonderful evening. Two years later, she did one for Valentine’s Day which was a riff on traditional love songs, called “Love Actually.”

What was so extraordinary about these evenings was both Liz’s incredible talent and her generosity in giving her talent to benefit the Library.

She was an amazing woman and will be missed by all who knew her.
