Miss Elizabeth, you will be missed. Such a dear Lady. May you enjoy eternal life in heaven with Jesus and your loved ones.

Oh the memories I have of dear Elizabeth: Bible class teacher, meals at her home, conversations after services. She was always interested in what I was doing, showing genuine interest and concern. The last time I visited with her in her home she took me on a tour of special items in the house. We had a great time remembering family and friends of the past. She is one of those "special" memories that I treasure.

You were strong, you were brave, you were funny, you were hardworking. You've worn the title of daughter, sister, Mother, wife, and I would know you always as Grannie. I would perch on the windowsill when I was a kid to see if you left me something in the mailbox on your way home from work. You made me fruit salad because it was one of my favorites. We all loved your home made bread. I spoke of you often because I was proud you were my grandmother and everyone knew I had a "Grannie".

Perhaps the most important name that you had was that of a Christian . You were a great example and I know with all the faith I can muster that God acknowledges you as a good and faithful servant. Rest in your reward and I will see there.

Thank you....

James Clayton Border Jul 19 2017 12:00 AM

You were a kind and gentle person. A very good example of how to be a good christian woman. I will always remember those days we sit beside each other at church and you tell me to 'hush' because the service is about to start. I will always remember the stories, the laughs, the smiles. Thankful to have met you and learn from you.
