A Tucson native whose sudden death gave new life to four people will be honored in next week's Rose Parade in Pasadena, Calif.
Liz Sutherland died nearly three years ago after slumping over from an unexpected brain aneurysm while on an evening horseback ride in Maui.
Though her tight-knit family members continue to grieve Liz's death, they can't help but smile at the notion of her likeness sitting atop a float in the renowned parade, which precedes the 2012 Rose Bowl football game Jan. 2.
Liz, who was 49 when she died, will be honored on a "Donate Life" float in recognition of her status as an organ donor. She's among 72 people from 31 states, Canada, Japan and Taiwan, many of them children, who will be honored on the float for being organ donors.
