Elizabeth was a devoted wife and caring mother, grandmother and sister. Being a diligent homemaker and great cook, she filled her home with love and welcomed all who entered. Elizabeth enjoyed working in her yard when her health permitted, but, most of all, she enjoyed spending time with her family. Being full of life, Elizabeth kept everyone on their toes. She enjoyed going to church, and she loved her church family. Elizabeth was loved and respected by all knew her, and she never met a stranger. Elizabeth will surely be missed, but treasured memories will forever live in the hearts of those who knew and loved her.
