Elizabeth was born in El Paso, Texas to John Barber Lewis and Noma Clements on May 4, 1923. She grew up in Stanton, Texas, outside of Midland/Odessa, and would tell us so many wonderful stories about growing up in a small town, including memories of her very first talking movie!

She had many jobs as a young lady: working as a switchboard operator, as well as building ships in California during World War II. She worked as a secretary at Magnolia Coca-Cola in El Paso, Texas for 20 years, handling the insurance for employees as well as giving tours. She was very active at Grandview Baptist Church in El Paso along with her husband Edgar Head (who had been her sweetheart as a teenager before the war) singing in the choir, delivering Meals on Wheels, and very involved in AARP.

Elizabeth had a very active and full life after moving to Franklin, Tennessee. She attended Christ Community Church on Sundays, as well as a women’s Bible study on Thursdays. Once a month she was also part of a women’s prison ministry, hugging the inmates and encouraging them! Tuesdays she attended a Thai Chi class at the Clay Center, and senior’s water aerobics class at the YMCA on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Elizabeth touched every life, encouraged every soul, and was known for her funny sense of humor! She would give anyone in need her last dime, and was a fierce prayer warrior! She inspired everyone she met and will be missed beyond words!
