Elizabeth was married to Patrick “Buttons” Crum for many years and resided in Tallulah, La.

Later, she moved to Vicksburg and was married to Robert Waring until his death. She enjoyed golfing, gardening, and playing cards. In her later years, she became a puzzle book wiz, was always ready to discuss politics with anyone and always had a Hershey bar nearby. Her greatest joy was her grandchildren and her great-grandchildren.

Her family thanks her “special angels” that helped with her care, Cassie Cook, Veronica Terry, Yvonne Jordan and Shy Watson.

Elizabeth did not want a fuss made over her at this time. Her daughter and grandchildren will host a private celebration of life service.
