Elizabeth was employed with the Army and Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) as a Supervisor overseeing both the Sand Hill & Harmony Church stores. She retired with 25 years of dedicated service. Elizabeth was known for being quite the fashionista! She absolutely loved beautiful clothes & hats. She had an unforgettable sense of style and flair that gave her the reputation as the Fashion Diva. She not only wanted to look great, but she also wanted others to have that same opportunity, so after retiring, Elizabeth became the proprietor of (2) Thrift Shops featuring the latest styles where everyone could have an affordable opportunity to look great. She loved listening to music and reading fashion magazines. She also loved shopping and considered it retail therapy.
Elizabeth loved the Lord. She was a faithful member of Spirit, Truth, & Liberty Ministries International Church in Columbus, GA under the leadership of Rev. Thomas H. Mills Jr. where she served as the Altar Guild for as long as her health would allow.
