Elizabeth Helen Hinkley, 85, of Fort Myers, Florida, passed away on June 6, 2019. Elizabeth was born in Knoxville, Iowa on March 15, 1934. She was a loving wife, mother and grandmother, who was known for her great family meals and baked treats, beautiful vegetable and flower gardens, and handmade clothing that she made for herself and her family. She was a great source of advice and guidance and shared her interests and skills with her children and grandchildren as well as many friends. She volunteered at garden clubs, the Virginia State Arboretum, her children’s school and Scouting activities, and enjoyed contributing her expertise to help others. Her family has many great memories of trips across the country, both on vacations and moves to new locations.

Did not know Liz for long but she was a kind and giving person. Always willing to help especially with sewing and mending.
We give many thanks for the wonderful privilege of knowing her. God Bless her and family.

So sorry to read about Liz's death. We enjoyed Liz and Ken's friendship when they were our neighbors in Jackson Woods. They shared many flowers with us (lilies, bear's breeches, Hellebore). And I remember wonderful loaves of bread (dill, as I recall) which they brought us. When they moved to Florida we visited them and enjoyed seeing where they were living. I had seen Liz at Orchard Ridge in April of 2018, but did not realize they had moved to Fort Myers. We will continue to remember her when the flowers bloom at our house. Our mutual love of flowers bonded this friendship.
