Born October 12, 1928, in Gypsum, Colorado, she was the daughter of James Lawrence Mosher and Agnes Agatha Quinlan Mosher.

As a third-generation rancher, Liz grew up on the Mosher ranch in Eagle and Garfield counties around Gypsum, Eagle, and near Coffee Pot Spring northwest of Dotsero. She graduated from Eagle Valley High School.
