To know Elizabeth was to know a straight-forward person, you never had to wonder where you stood with her. She was so loving and caring for everyone in her circle whether family, friend or young’uns (you knew if you were one of her “young’uns.”). Her love, friendship and smile will be forever missed by all that loved and knew her.
