Biography

A very observant woman who would rather spend her time creating than talking, Elizabeth preferred to live in a world of harmony where everything around her made sense. In fact, she depended on her sensory world to provide her with concrete data. A free spirit, Elizabeth believed that actions definitely spoke for themselves. She seemed to know what fit and what didn’t fit in everything she did. Elizabeth perceived that all of life’s possibilities were open to her, yet she lived with a definite sense of purpose. She was a woman who was always ready to share her creations with those around her.

      Elizabeth was born on September 21, 1930 at her home in Booneville, MS. Her parents were Bobbie Smith Arnold and Lillie Bell Bullock Arnold. Elizabeth was raised in Snowdown, MS. As a young child, Elizabeth was optimistic in her outlook. She sought out the possibilities in a given situation and looked for ways to apply her creative energies. Elizabeth rarely calling attention to herself, but when she did speak out, her message was clearly understood by those around her.

      Early on in her family relationships, Elizabeth showed that she was a tolerant and flexible person, and she got along fairly well with everyone. She was raised with eight brothers and sisters. She had four brothers, Marvin, Matt, James, and John; and four sisters Magdalene, Mary, Ruth, and May Bell. She was a calm and playful child who was adaptable to any situation.

      As she was growing up, Elizabeth developed into a person who enjoyed physically doing things, and she took pleasure in using her hands in order to create. Whether it was drawing pictures, working with building kits, or even just tapping out a rhythm to play by, Elizabeth liked concrete things. Growing up, Elizabeth took part in jumping sticks. In her spare time she liked anything outdoors. However, to Elizabeth, the most fun she had was simply playing, and spending time with friends.

      Those who didn’t know Elizabeth well might not view her as being an outgoing person, those who called her their friend knew differently. Elizabeth was shy and sensitive, a person who never forced her opinions and values on others. Close friends knew that her kindness was unmatched, and once you became a friend of Elizabeth’s, you understood how true a friend she could be. While growing up, some of her best friends were Sybil, Elemer, and Reba. Later in life, she became friends with Elmer, and Kay.

      A person who was sensitive to others’ feelings, modest and tolerant, Elizabeth had the ability to become completely devoted to another when that affection was returned. On July 27, 1948, Elizabeth exchanged wedding vows with her life partner Clyde Horn at the at the preachers house in Booneville, MS.

      Elizabeth was exceptionally sympathetic and compassionate when it came to her children. These emotional bonds made her as much playmate as parent. She gave her family unconditional love and kindness, sharing her artistic nature by turning everyday events into creative play. Elizabeth was blessed with six children, Jane, J.D., Ricky, Debbie, Brenda, and Jerry. She was also blessed with thirteen grandchildren, Tammie, Nathan, Brandy, Jennifer, Jermey, Marsha, Amanda, Jeffery, Benjie, Brett, Sheri, Dillon, and Cody.

      Elizabeth found ways to enjoy what she did for a living. She worked hard and did her best to succeed every day. Her primary occupation was a homemaker and working in the familly business, Horn Upholstery Shop. She was employed for 30 years at Horn Upholstery Shop. Elizabeth tended to be a team player, doing what was necessary in order to get the job done without imposing her will on others.

      Elizabeth enjoyed her leisure time by taking part in various hobbies. Her favorite pursuits were gardening. Elizabeth was content to enjoy her hobbies alone but was also willing to share her interests with others. She was relaxed in her approach to her leisure time because she wanted to savor the present moment.

      Elizabeth’s faith was important to her. She was a member of Fairview. Elizabeth's passionate commitment to upholding her values placed her at home in her religion, where she took comfort in the company of others who believed as she did.

      Because she loved the world around her, Elizabeth enjoyed traveling and going away on vacations. It was an opportunity for her to kick back and relax, to visit new places and experience new things. Elizabeth put her personal trademark on any leisure planning that she undertook. Her favorite vacation trips were going to Mount Rushmore and Florida.

      Elizabeth was a lover of animals and cherished her pets. One of Elizabeth’s favorites was Bear, a Chow dog. They were best friends for sixteen years. Her family was rounded out by her two dogs, Bear and Toby, and her cat, Casey.

      When Elizabeth’s retirement finally arrived in 1993, she was well prepared. Her new life involved relocating to Booneville, MS. In retirement, she found new pleasure in gardening and playing bingo. Even in retirement, Elizabeth continued to stay in touch with her old friends while making plenty of new acquaintances. In these later chapters of her life, she became active in the community, feeling fulfilled with the opportunities retirement offered her and simply enjoying what she had worked so hard to attain.

      Elizabeth passed away on January 25, 2020 at her home in Booneville, MS. Elizabeth fought a brave battle against pneumomia. She is survived by her four children, Jane, Rickey, Brenda, and Jerry; son-in-law, Charles Crowe; her thirteen grandchildren, twenty-two great grandchildren, and her five great-great grandchildren.
