WILMINGTON — Elizabeth Ann “Liz” Drew, 79, passed away Friday, Sept. 27, 2019. She was born Feb. 15, 1940, in Durant, Oklahoma, to Robert Sr. and Kathleen (McLean) Abbott.

She was the little sister to Robert Jr., who she adored. Through the tales she told of their childhood, she recognized very early on that he took exceptional care of looking after her. They forged a bond of devotion that lasted their lifetimes.

Liz graduated from Durant High School in 1958 with a group of friends they called “The Girls.” Their friendship circle remained constant and strong for 60-plus years. She attended Southeastern Oklahoma State University, where she was a member of Sigma Kappa Sorority. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics.

Liz taught middle school and high school math in Oklahoma City and Moore Oklahoma. She retired after teaching in Sherman, Texas. Liz had also received her real estate license in Oklahoma and spent several years in this field before returning to the classroom.

She was a member of PEO, a philanthropic organization where women motivate women to achieve their highest aspirations through scholarships, grants, and awards and belonged to the First Christian Church in Durant, Oklahoma. Reading books, playing bridge, watching old movies, chocolate ice cream, working crossword puzzles, playing solitaire, traveling and spending time with her family and friends were among her favorites. She was also an avid OU Sooners fan.

In February 2018, Liz moved to Wilmington to be with her family. She loved watching her grandchildren’s tennis matches, soccer games, going over to Allison’s for Sunday suppers and attending her neighborhood book club meetings and social gatherings.

Liz was preceded in death by her parents and her brother, Robert Powell Abbott Jr.

She is survived by her son, Robert Perry Badger III; daughter, Allison Badger Horton, and her husband, Maurice V. Horton II; grandchildren, Robert Perry Badger IV, Kathleen, Chase, Chandler and Lily Horton; sister-in-law, Mary Abbott; niece, Marilyn Abbott; other relatives, Sue Stovall, Rosemary Riddle (Wallace); Eleanor Watkins and many friends.
