Jo Beth and Carl,
My family and I were very sorry to hear about your mother's death and hope you are feeling comforted by the love and support of family and friends. I'm so sorry I didn't hear about her death and funeral arrangements until a few days after the funeral, as I would have liked to attend the service. She was a wonderful friend and neighbor to our family, and I know she will be missed very much. Please take very good care of yourselves. Love, Margie DiJohn

Elizabeth was my second cousin. She was very loving and helpful to our family when my mother (Luticia Ann Cain Jacoby) passed away in 1976. She raised very good and successful children in Carl and Jo Beth!
I loved the desserts she made, especially her delicious chocolate cherry cake!
Condolences to the family.
