Elizabeth was a valued member of the One Life church community and spread the love of God everywhere she went.

In her own words, “there was nothing better than teaching babies about Jesus.” She was known for her loyalty to family and her love for Jesus.

Elizabeth had many passions in life outside of church; she loved music, especially Bad Bunny. She also enjoyed sharing her creativity through makeup and taking photos.
