Elizabeth Wooten Franks, 92, of Raleigh, NC transitioned into eternal rest on Saturday, September 18, 2021 with her beloved family by her side.

Elizabeth, native to Harnett and Sampson Co. NC, was born May 22, 1929 to the late Harvey Crawford Wooten and Clyda (West) Wooten.

Elizabeth (Lib) was a proud graduate and valedictorian of Westbrook School in 1947. She then proceeded to and graduated from Harbarger Business College in Raleigh. Her love of Raleigh was firmly established and after a few short years of residing and working in Rocky Mount, she realized her dream of returning to Raleigh. She quickly found employment and began a lifelong career with Carolina Power and Light (CP&L) which was acquired by Duke Energy at the end of her career. Lib was a true and loyal friend to many at CP&L and enjoyed many adventures of travel and family celebrations with her work family. Lib was also a very dedicated daughter to her mother, Clyda West Wooten, who resided with Lib for many decades. The mother-daughter duo enjoyed many travel adventures and family celebrations together, as well. Although, traditional by today’s standards, Lib’s independent style of living and travel was quite admirable in time period context. When not planning travel adventures Lib, enjoyed the simple pursuits of reading, cooking and family. She had a great love of children, education and her fur babies, Wiggles and Demi. Lib was a very active member of New Hope Baptist Church in Raleigh, and the church’s Keenagers and Friday Lunch Bunch groups. Lib will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege to know and love her.

Elizabeth is preceded in death by her parents Harvey Crawford Wooten and Clyda West Wooten, her brother Angus Wilton Wooten, her sisters Daphne Wooten Searles and Louretha Wooten Knight, and her nephew Frank Searles, Jr.

Elizabeth is survived by her nieces and nephews and their families, Clyda Knight Martin (Gary) of Hickory, NC; Lealand E. Knight (Carrie) of Monroe, LA; John Frederick Knight (Petra) of Little Rock, AR; Jo Ann Knight Cox (Cy) of DeWitt, AR; Elizabeth Searles Winter of Texas; Ronnie Wooten (Diane) of Marco Island, FL; Donna Wooten Jones (Jeff) of Rocky Mount, NC; and Greg Wooten Freeland (Wendy) of Seminole,FL.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, October 2, 2021 at New Hope Baptist Church in Raleigh. Visitation will begin at 12:00pm with funeral services to immediately follow at 1:00 pm. Following services at the church interment services will be conducted at Montlawn Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made in Elizabeth's honor to either the New Hope Baptist Church’s Keenager Group or the Benevolent Fund.

Lib and I enjoyed a cold cut combo the first week of each month. Several times we went to local flower gardens such as THE WRAL GARDENS. Our favorite restaurant was Olive Garden. Libby invited me to go to her church New Hope Baptist which I felt so comfortable and welcomed. I eventually was baptized by Dr. Childress. We were friends for 12 years. We both liked living at Terrace Spring. She will be sorely missed but fondly remembered. Love you Lib!
