Elizabeth enjoyed arts and crafts with her grandkids, sisters and many friends, and traveling to the Gulf of Mexico and Dale Hollow Lake to soak up the rays from the sun. Making memories with her family was a priority. She was an avid reader. Peaceful walks on trails and other pathways was always a relaxing time to Elizabeth. Another one of her passions was to sit on her back patio watching birds and enjoying her bountiful flowers. She loved her gardens and worked diligently to perfect them over the years. Elizabeth participated in a number of community activities and was especially fond of the Wreaths Across America program, decorating the graves of soldiers buried in Indianapolis. She also delivered holiday meals to those in need for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
