To know Elizabeth, was to love Elizabeth. She had a way of
making people feel comfortable and she enjoyed 'her gift
of gab'. She was very generous with her acts of kindness
to her friends and family. She wanted you to be happy, to
see the world and to do things she didn’t get to do in her
younger life. She was a simple lady with a big heart who
required very little and was content in life. Her total
journey was devoted to her marriage, her dear family and
her deep faith in God and to her Choptack Baptist Church
