Elizabeth was preceded in death by her parents, Taylor and Anna Mae Abnot (Tweedy); her brother-in-law and sister Sanchez and Eleanor Goode (Abnot); and her brother Neal Abnot.

The family would like to thank all the love and support that the community has provided. It through this love and support that our broken hearts can heal.
