Elizabeth Leitner Goodwin, of Charlotte, NC, died on Wednesday, April 4, 2018 at Carolina Medical Center in Charlotte, NC. She was 49 years old. Elizabeth was born on January 29, 1969. She attended Alexander Graham Junior High school in Charlotte, NC where she was active in the chorus program and took general studies. Lizzy as her friends called her, then went to Myers Park High School in Charlotte, NC and graduated in 1987. While there, she served as an office and library assistant and had many friends. Lizzy married Chad Ryan Goodwin on June 5, 2010 and together they had a wonderful love that we all seek to find, even though it was short lived. Elizabeth worked as a cashier at Harris Teeter for over twenty years before having to retire. A unique soul, Lizzy was very special to her friends and family. Lizzy had a laugh that was contagious, a limitless passion for singing out of tune, and really loved to call people up and sing happy birthday to them in her wonderful way. Lizzy will be greatly missed. Lizzy is survived by her brother Howard, and was preceded in death by her husband Chad Goodwin, her father Matthew Leitner, her mother Sara Leitner, and her sister Melissa Leitner.
