She cared for every child as if they were her own, often keeping children past work hours to help parents in their time of need. The most important message she spread was the love of God, she not only spoke it, she lived it and provided that example to anyone she came in contact with. Her wish was for everyone to make it to heaven one day.
Those who knew Elizabeth, knew that she was not a shy woman. She would speak and minister to whomever had an ear to hear a word from the Lord.
