Elizabeth was a wonderful lady who always seemed to smile. She will be deeply missed by her church family, but most certainly welcomed in her new place of worship. The congregation of Draper Christian Church have lost a dear sister where the church meets here on earth. We continue praying for all the family.

To the family of Lib Poindexter. I am so sorry for your loss. Lib was a wonderful lady. She was a great friend and a regular at our exercise classes, we will definately miss her at the senior center. I was out of town the week of July 4th and did not get back until after her funeral. I wanted to let you know how much we loved her and we have you in our thoughts and prayers. With our Condolences, Carla Huffman
I didn't know Lib very long. I took exercises classe when I worked on Monday or Wednesday or Friday. She was a very nice lady. She will be truly missed. I am praying for your family. A least she is not suffering any more.
Rodney, Paula and Tracy it was so good to see you and all of Elizabeth's other family. It brought back a lot of good memories. It made me feel good to see my picture in the video. After Elizabeth moved from Eden we didn't see each other much. I did see her at the Senior Center about a year ago and we talked for a very long time. I am so grateful for that. We laughed and talked about how we would get all 'dressed up' and walk 'down town' to the Balmar Theater and eat at John East's Soda Shop on Saturday and Sunday afternoon. Of course we would scout out all the cute boys as well. However she got most of them, she was much prettier than me. I absolutely love that picture of Elizabeth (Screwnitch) pulling Joe in that wagon. That was priceless. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Janice and Robert Turner

Our sincere sympathy to Elizabeth's family. She was a special lady we had the privilege of getting to know because of my Aunt Shirley Stowe. May God bless you in the difficult days ahead. Rita and Steve
