Elizabeth was a sweet person who loved our Church, Calvary UMC and it's congregation. She was very active in our Church and was one of the reasons I became a part of the Finance Committee. She walks with God now and I am so thankful for having known her. Thoughts and prayers for her family, God Bless. Linda
