Elizabeth P. Walters
November 10, 1926 – May 5, 2018
Elizabeth “Liz” Patterson Walters was born on November 10, 1926 to Sam and Grace Patterson. She grew up in San Antonio, TX with constant playmates in her brother, sisters, and many close cousins. She graduated from Harlandale High School in San Antonio at the age of 17 and went on to complete her education at Baylor University. She graduated with honors and acquired a position at Baylor Scott and White hospital in Temple, TX. She not only was a phlebotomist, but also worked in the laboratory to test blood, grow cultures and diagnose various diseases.
During this time, Elizabeth met her husband, Frank Walters, on a blind date that was set up by a dear friend, George Panion. True love transpired, and they were married. During their 42 years together, Frank and Liz were blessed with two children, Pat and Lynn. After being a stay-at-home mother for several years, she began teaching 7th grade Science at Memorial Junior High. Liz taught there for 26 years. Not a day went by without discussing some form or fashion of science, and that continued all the way through her journey with Alzheimer’s! After retirement she enjoyed getting deeper into the Bible through Bible Study Fellowship and was an active member of retired teachers. She and Frank enjoyed many years of activities and travel, often visiting Canada, Alaska and Disney World in Florida.
After Frank passed on to his new life in eternity, the Lord knew Liz still had many years ahead and knew she was lonely. She found love again with Lester Krohn, Pat and Lynn’s Godfather. They had 12 wonderful years together and she loved and cared for him until he passed on to Heaven. Liz then moved to Tyler, TX to be with her favorite little sister, Patricia.
Liz was a devoted Christian who was the ultimate hostess, loved her family, and was always ready to listen with an open heart and a prayer.
After a long road of living gracefully with Alzheimer’s, Elizabeth went to the loving arms of Jesus, her Savior, on May 5, 2018.
Elizabeth is survived by her children, Pat Walters and his wife, Sheri of Sugar Land, TX, Lynn Bryan and her husband, Danny of Frisco, TX. Carrying on her legacy of love, she also is survived by her grandchildren, James Bryan and his wife, Christina, Dania Bryan, Amy Moore and her husband, John, and Alyssa Walters, her great grandchildren, Bryce, Blake, Daniel, Chad and Trevor, and one great-great granddaughter, Taelyn.
