  1. Elizabeth was a dear sweet lady. She will be missed by her friends, family and myself. As I’ve said before when Elizabeth smiled, she smiled as much with her eyes as with her grin. God gave us his child and now he brings her home to him.

  2. Momma you were always a wonderful soul with a kind heart who treated people with love and care all of your life.
    It always brought joy to my life to see you smile and laugh especially in these later years.
    I miss you Momma now and always.

  3. Momma Elizabeth, you always had kind words for everyone, no matter the situation. This is reflected by kind words, thoughts and actions of your long line of children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. What a wonderful influence you’ve had on the entire family. We’ve enjoyed the many visits with you over the past 41 years, watching and listening to you talk about your beautiful rose garden and visiting all the historical sites. That brought particular calm and happiness to you as you reminisced over the many years, we could see that in your smile as you glared into the distant past, and spoke steadfastly of hope for a pleasant and promising future for all. We love and miss you eternally.

  4. Momma Elizabeth, you always had kind words for everyone, no matter the situation. You were always a wonderful mother, grandmother and great grandmother to all. This is reflected by kind words, thoughts and actions of your long line of children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. What a wonderful influence you’ve had on the entire family that started with gentle caressing of the children and grandchildren with loving care while speaking softly, letting them know they’re protected and all is well. We cherish memories of the many visits with you over the years, watching and listening to you talk about your beautiful rose garden and visiting all the historical sites. That brought particular calm and happiness to you as you reminisced over the many years, that we could see in your smile as you glared into the distant past with fond memories, and spoke steadfastly of hope for a pleasant and promising future for all. Momma, we love you and miss you eternally.

  5. My great grandmother, You have given me & my family great inspiration and words of guidance. You have always given us your unconditional love. I will miss the long conversations we shared. Words can not express the magnitude of the impact you have left me with. I will forever cherish the memories we have experienced together. We are all better people because of you. To have known such a strong woman with such a big open heart. Me, my wife and children love you greatly.

    • When a loved one leaves us it creates a void in the hearts of relatives and friends who loved them. My Aunt “Lib” has left such a huge empty space for so many with her departure from these earthly bounds.

      Aunt Lib, enjoy your reunion with those gone before who found salvation through the blood of Jesus Christ. Rest easy until we meet again in that house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens!

  6. Grandma, you were always a wonderful person who gave me encouragement in all things. The last time we spoke in person was a few years ago when you told me to always do my best. The last time we spoke on the phone we had a good laugh and you told me to always read my bible. I can still remember over the years growing up when we came to visit, how you would sit and play the piano for us and tell us stories. Grandma I wish that I was not so far away, for if I was closer to home I would have come to see you more. I miss you grandma. Love always.

  7. My sympathy and prayers to all of the family of this wonderful lady. I pray you all made good memories to look back on. Joyce Beal
