Survived by siblings, JT Nelson, Jerry Ann Nelson and children Billy Stewart, Jeffery Stewart, Sandra Stewart, Jennifer McCollough and Brittney Duffee.

Liz was a very loving person. She raised her children and went on to adopt two generations of grandchildren. She was always willing to lend a helping hand to any one in need.

     She loved collecting “what nots” as she called them and having yard sales, even when it was raining or cold out. She was always a very strong and at times opinionated woman. This always meant for a great conversation with her. She will be missed dearly by everyone.

The family has asked that in lieu of flower arrangements, you donate/support a local child for Christmas in honor of her life.

The family will send out a separate announcement regarding her memorial service.
