Elizabeth was just fifteen-years-old when she came to live with Audrey Hardy, her 'grandmother.' Audrey's husband, Steve, had engaged in an affair that produced Elizabeth's father, Jeff Webber, and after Steve's death, Audrey became the sole grandparent to Liz and her sister, Sarah.
Liz had her eye on Lucky, but he had his cap set for Sarah, even though Sarah wanted Nikolas Cassadine. Lucky finally focused his attention on Elizabeth after she was violently raped, vowing to capture the man who attacked her. It wasn't her English teacher, as she wrongfully suspected, and until she teamed with Lucky, Nikolas and did she discover it was a photographer named Tom. He held Emily and Elizabeth at gunpoint and confessed to the rape. Fortunately, he was arrested and convicted.
The tense moments brought Lucky and Elizabeth closer, and they fell in love, but their romance was short-lived when she learned that he had been killed in a fire. She allowed her friends to comfort her, but got herself into trouble trying to drown her sorrows while hanging out in Jake's bar. Luckily, Jason intervened when a male patron refused to take 'no' for an answer from Liz.
Her romantic attention then focused on Jason, but she was crushed by his rejection. He realized that being involved with her would place her life in jeopardy, and he ultimately left Port Charles.
Elizabeth was stunned that Lucky lived. The fire had been staged and DNA tests altered. Lucky had been kidnapped and brainwashed by Helena Cassadine and the evil, Faison, and when Lucky came home, he wasn't the same person Elizabeth remembered. Counseling with Kevin Collins helped Lucky overcome the hypnotic hold of Helena, and he returned to almost normal.
A disappointing stint at Deception Cosmetics, Lucky relapse back to Helena's trance-like control, and an ever-growing fascination with a recently-returned Jason Morgan, kept Elizabeth's life in turmoil.
When the Spencer/Cassadine conflict finally ended and things settled once again, Elizabeth and Lucky, now recovered, planned their wedding. Although she had reservations about his state of mind and true feelings for her, she was determined to make the relationship work.
Things were fine until a conniving Maxie sent Elizabeth to a room where Sarah and Lucky were having sex. Liz repaid Lucky's infidelity by sleeping with Zander Smith, and later having his child.
With Zander gone, Liz met Ric Lansing. Although still enamored with Jason, he had moved on and started a life with Courtney. Carly warned Liz about Ric, but Elizabeth accused her of lying and let her feelings for Ric develop. Even when he had kidnapped Carly and kept her in a secret room of their home, Elizabeth was hopelessly blind to the side of her husband that wanted nothing more than to take down his own brother, Sonny.
When Ric and Liz wed, they had intentions of telling Zander that he was a father, but it was believed that he was the fire victim earlier presumed to be Lucky Spencer. Zander, however, turned up alive, kidnapped his former wife, Emily, and when police surrounded him, he purposely pretended to reach for a gun, and was shot dead.
Liz and Ric's marriage fell apart because of his constant scheming. She divorced him and left town, only to return to surprise Audrey again, this time with baby, Cameron. Elizabeth enrolled in school to become a nurse, and reconnected with Lucky. She succeeded in her career goal, but her personal one didn't fare as well. It looked as though they might have rebuilt their relationship, but Lucky got hooked on pain pills and had an affair with Maxie Jones.
Seeking solace, Elizabeth turned once again to Jason, and later discovered she was pregnant, and wasn't sure who fathered the child. The stress of that dilemma, and hearing Maxie announce her own pregnancy by Lucky, made it hard to forgive him despite his recent stay in a drug rehab. A long-awaited DNA test told Elizabeth her son Jake was Jason's child.
She and Jason almost made a life together on two separate occasions, but each time something explosive (literally) regarding his work made it crystal clear that their union would put her and her children at risk. So, she raised her two boys alone with the help of Lucky, who agreed to keep the secret of Jake's true paternity and claimed the boy as his own. In 2009, her good friend Robin was diagnosed with postpartum depression and she stepped in to help her husband Patrick with baby Emma until Robin could get the help that she needed.
Lucky and Elizabeth eventually reunited and became engaged, but her friendship with his brother Nikolas turned into a passionate affair. When Lucky found out, he disowned them both.
Elizabeth became pregnant and after having a break down, which landed her in Shady Brook, she had a paternity test done. Helena switched the DNA tests and Nikolas was revealed to be the father. After Liz gave birth, Franco kidnapped baby Aiden, but Lucky tracked him down and brought the baby home.
Nikolas invited Elizabeth and the boys to live with him for a while, but it didn't last long. Elizabeth went to visit her sister on the west coast and when she returned she discovered that Nikolas and Brook Lynn had become close.
After realizing that Lucky had moved on, she tried to get Nikolas' attention again, but discovered Brook Lynn was a formidable rival.

At the hospital, Liz tells Jake that they never found Jason's body. She fills him in about Jason's history with the Quartermaines. All of this brain injury and amnesia sounds familiar to Jake. He tries to imagine what seeing people he knew but couldn't remember would be like. "You're not Jason," Liz reassures him. She gets a wheelchair and has to help him into it. When she gets him standing, they share a little moment before he sits in the chair. She wheels him around and takes him to the art therapy room. When she mentions Franco, something seems to click. She tells him about her art so he asks her to paint for him. The nurse gets beeped and has to go and see a patient. Moments later, Carly strolls in and comes face to face with Jake.
At General Hospital, Jake/Jason has been moved to a new room and Liz checks on him. Jason has been thinking about the night of the accident. He is sure he remembers hearing two voices that night. Liz says if it is important then he will remember it. Later Obrecht strolls in and introduces herself to "Heir Doe." Obrecht worries that he could be a vagrant who has been milking the hospital out of money. Liz and Obrecht end up arguing over the healthcare system and trade barbs until Obrecht finally leaves. Liz fills Jason in on Obrecht’s criminal history, her connection to Faison, and Jason’s murder. Jake/Jason asks how long it has been since he died. Liz says it’s two years to the day. Liz reveals Jason’s body was never found, so they couldn’t even give him a funeral.
