Elizabeth was a tiny lady filled with amazing drive and energy. She worked harder than anyone we’ve ever known. She retired from American Filtrona after 36 years of dedicated service, but she always remained busy taking care of family and friends.
Elizabeth was a true and faithful friend, loving and caring. She was the most amazing and wonderful mother and grandma, always training and preparing us for life. She lived her life loving God and loving people. She loved truly and deeply, nurtured her children and taught them the love of Christ, she lived out her faith by being the hands and feet of Jesus on earth. She was always a prayer warrior and gave blessings and hugs wherever she went. Her wisdom and counsel will be missed by all who knew and loved her. Until we meet again, we hold her faithfully and tenderly in our hearts and memories. We love you forever momma.
