Elizabeth married Tom and spent her life being mom to her only child Brent who was her pride & joy. She was a devoted mother but when her grandsons were born she excelled at being a grandmother. Then she became a great-grandmother and there are no words to express her joy & happiness. She was truly devoted to her family, they were her everything. Elizabeth was a lifetime member of St. Andrew's Church, she was a strong supporter from baking for her bake sales to participating in concerts. She was one of the favorites in the concert, she was game for anything. She loved to have fun and laugh and always had a story to tell. she operated and ran a store in between raising her son & always being there for her church. Elizabeth was a tiny woman with a big heart and strong personality. She will be missed by so many for her dedication & determination. A woman who never let anything stop her, the world lost a great woman but heaven gained an angel.
