She married when she was very young, EARNEST ALBERT MAHONEY. He was considerably older than LIZ. Born in Indian Territory, the son of LOUIS ISAAC MAHONEY and DONA SIMPSON. There was one child from this marriage, ALBERT C. MAHONEY.
LIZ left Earnest after about three years of marriage. Earnest and his father raised AL as ALBERT (He was called) LIZ had several more marriages. About 1942, she moved to California, living in Kern County. She developed tuberculosis, and was hospitalized in the Kern County TB Sanitarium at Keen, California. She was in and out of the hospital for a period of about seven to eight years.The last time she was hospitalized, very seriously ill. And new and radical surgery procedure was performed. Some of her ribs were removed, causing the infected lung to collapse. She always had a breathing problem and other complications from this surgery.
Shortly after she recovered from the surgery she married ABEL SANCHES. A fellow patient, he knew he was dying. LIZ took care of him during the few months they were married. Her son, AL, told of this time in LIZ's life. "ABEL left my mother some property near Delano. A good sized piece of land, with a number of rentals on it. She felt the land should go to ABEL'S parents. I tried to talk her into keeping it, and sharing the rental income with his parents. She had no place to live, she had no money and she wasn't really well enough to work. She said she wouldn't feel right about keeping the property." AL was about 17 at the time, went with her when she signed over the property.
LIZ soon married again, to a hard-working man, and the rest of her life was lived in Moderate security, even though her health was never good.
