  • Debbie Hoskins Posted May 31, 2020 11:45 am

    I loved Elizabeth. She was a pillar in the Lancaster Nazarene Church and never missed a service. Her laugh and smile were infectious. She was a great cook. Once I had a Christmas get together..everyone brought their favorite dish. She asked what I wanted and she brought it. It was the best pot of soup beans and big chunks of ham, that I ever ate. She shared with others and never failed to send cards and kind notes on special occasions. She was one of my mamas best friends (Louise Barrett). She misses her friend, also. Linda, I know your heart us broken but she is with Paul again. Cherish all the memories. We love you and your family. Debbie
