Aunt Lizzie was a matriarch for a huge family. She will be greatly missed in her church, community, and family. She was such a loving, positive," people person". She kept very busy and was always interested in everyone's well-being. She knew how to do everything! What a blessing she was to all. God bless her family who cared for her so well. She was so richly blessed by our Lord and Savior! There is a great reunion in heaven with all who have gone before her. Great-niece, Mary Joyce Beard

I loved hearing Lizzie share the stories like seeing her first car when she was 7 years old. I can't imagine the vast changes that she witnessed over her lifetime. I will miss her wisdom and her open arms to visitors. Thank you for be so willing to share her with us. I know she is safe in our Savior's arms and trust that He will comfort you in her absence. Hugs and prayers.
