This was a woman of special mightiness to live these many years and yet in our eyes and especially in Gods eyes it is not nearly enough. Please know others care. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4.

Elizabeth is a wonderful memory of my childhood. She helped me pick out 10 cent toys and comic books at the dime store. Thank you Elizabeth for the great memories.

She always had a beautiful smile for everyone. Very sweet lady, prayers for her family during this time. Just think of all the changes in this world she witnessed.

Elizabeth will always hold a special place in my heart. She put up with a little girl who would visit Ben Franklin almost every day after school. Roaming the isles, looking everything over. Stopping to check out any new item. And boy, to have a nickle and spend several minutes trying to choose the perfect penny candy! And when that little girl grew up, her brother married Lisa ! What a wonderful gift to our family! For many years Lisa would bring Elizabeth to holiday dinners, and my little girls grew up loving Memaw . We still have to make Memaw salad on Easter and Christmas. She will never be forgotten.
