This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A sculptor, painter, muralist and art educator, Elizabeth Kormendi was especially known for her ceramics and religious statuary. She was born in Budapest, Hungary where she studied at the Art Academy and was active in the Fine Arts Society of Budapest. She married Eugene Kormendi, also a sculptor and student at the Budapest Academy. The couple studied in Paris, and she was also in Rome and Berlin.

In 1939 the Elizabeth and her husband were visiting the United States but were prevented from returning home because of the outbreak of World War II in Europe. Seeking employment, her Eugene Kormendi took a job as artist-in-residence at Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana, and spent much of his career on the faculty of that university. Elizabeth was a visiting professor there during many summer sessions and was a professor at Dunbarton College and St. Mary's College in South Bend.

Her work includes:

The crucifixion, aluminum, (entire set of stations of the cross), Boys Town, Omaha, Nebraska

Stations of the Cross, ceramic on mosaic, Church of the Immaculate Conception, East Chicago, Indiana

Archbishop John Noll, oil, Our Sunday Visitor building, Huntington, Indiana

Murals in St. Catherine's Church in St. Louis, Missouri and Mount Carmel Church in St. Louis.

Among exhibition venues were the Milwaukee Art Institute in 1940 (solo) and 1945 (solo); Renaissance Society, University of Chicago, 1941; Oak Park Art League, 1941; John Herron Art Institute, 1943; Norton Gallery, 1944; Nurenberg, Germany; Venice, Italy; Barcelona, Spain; Budapest, Hungary

Sources include:

Ann Ball, researcher of Archbishop John Noll. One of her reference books is "The Art of Eugene and Elizabeth Kormendi", loaned to her by one of the Crosier Fathers, a religious order of Catholic priests.
