Elizabeth Fair Pittman

November 1, 1932 — April 3, 2024

Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Elizabeth Inez Fair Pittman passed away on Wednesday, April 3, 2024, at the age of 91. She was born November 1, 1932, in Mansfield, Louisiana to Archibald Alfred Fair, Jr. and Inez Curtis Fair.  

She is preceded in death by her parents and her husband of 53 years, Homer Ernest Pittman, Jr.  Elizabeth is survived by her loving children, Edward Fair Pittman and wife Gail, and Elizabeth Ann Pittman Watson and her husband Ken; five grandchildren Kathryn E. Pittman, Kelly A. Hill, Katie H. Kurz and husband Dr. Benjamin Kurz, Doug E. Pittman and wife Megan, and Preston M. Pittman and wife Jordan.  She also is survived by four great-grandchildren, Wade and Caroline Kurz and Hudson and Graham Pittman. Kyle Watson, pallbearer, and several special cousins were also important to her. The grandchildren and their spouses will also serve as pallbearers.  

Relatives and friends are invited to attend funeral services Thursday, April 11, 2024, conducted by St. Luke’s Episcopal Church clergy where Elizabeth was a member.  However, the services will be held at St. James Episcopal Church, 205 North 4th Street in Baton Rouge.  A visitation will be held at the church beginning at 10:00 a.m. with funeral services at 11:30 a.m.  Interment will follow at Resthaven Gardens of Memory.  

Elizabeth was an only child, but was raised by her parents and two special aunts, Elzie and Ruth Fair. Elizabeth graduated from Louisiana State University earning a bachelor’s degree in Speech Education, was a lifetime member of Kappa Kappa Gamma and lived the remainder of her life in Baton Rouge.  She grew to love Baton Rouge as she met her husband, made friends through Exxon Newcomers Club, DAR, garden clubs and found her competitive outlet - Bridge.  She became a master bridge player.  With a short residence in Scottsdale Arizona, she rekindled her love for horses and developed her southwestern flair.  Although described by many as a southern lady, anyone who played bridge with her or attended her grandchildren's sporting events knew she was highly competitive.  Her love of sports, fashion, interior design and common sense advice resulted in Elizabeth becoming a very influential mother and grandmother.  

Elizabeth resided the last 14 years of her life at St. James Place.  In later years, she was attended to by many special caregivers.   The family would like to thank Christy, Wanda, Margaret, Annette, Lorrie, and Brendia for providing excellent care.  Also, Sidney Joffrion, Audubon Hospice nurse, was a comfort and special new friend to Elizabeth.  

For those so desiring, memorials in honor of Elizabeth Fair Pittman may be made to St. Luke’s Episcopal Church Rebuilding Fund or St Jude’s Children’s Hospital or a charity of your choice.
