Elizabeth worked several clerical jobs, and she worked as Postmaster Relief for Abbeville Post Office. Because of her great love for shoes, she most enjoyed working in retail in shoe departments at Dillards, Belk, and Goldsmith’s. She also enjoyed working as manager at Vincent Shoes. Elizabeth was a person loved by everyone who knew her, but none loved her more than her grandchildren. Her life revolved around family and spending time with them. She was adored by her husband, her children, her siblings, and her in laws. They knew her as beautiful, loving, and caring. One of the greatest legacies she leaves her family is that she was a friend forever. She loved her friends and remained loyal to them. She loved crafts, but especially jewelry making. Her favorite pieces were the many spoon and cross selections. She enjoyed helping her sister run the Abbeville Flea Market.
