We respectfully remember the life of Ms. Elizabeth Wilson 83, of the Turkey Hill community of Green Pond, South Carolina.
Aunt Liz’s life was one of humble beginnings. Elizabeth was the last child born on 11, March 1937 to her predeceased parents Della Edwards and Jesse Wilson. Elizabeth was born in Green Pond, SC in a small neighborhood called Turkey Hill.
Elizabeth beloved predeceased siblings are her brothers Sonny and John; and her sisters: Nancy, Helen, Suzie, Coreatha, Rozela, Ida Mae, and Williamena. Elizabeth was educated at Ivenia Brown School. At the age of 16 years old, Elizabeth made the journey to New York City, in search of gainful employment, with the sole intent of supporting her mother.
Liz worked several jobs before landing employment with the United States Postal service. Afterwards, Elizabeth began working with the New York City Transit Authority and retired after 20 years of service. Liz lived in New York City for 60 years and she enjoyed the freedom and success That her diligent and hard-work brought to her. Liz was an extremely successful and tenacious woman as she was the owner of a New York City Brownstone. She engaged in living the high life; she found enjoyment in travelling abroad to various places and leisure activities; such as, wagering monetarily with the primary purpose of gaining. Although Liz was successful, she was also frugal and valued her financial freedom.
Liz was uniquely special and straightforward woman who was filled with wisdom, knowledge, and purposeful perspective. In her presence, one would find joy, laughter, and insight.
Rarely, would one leave her presence in the same way— one would depart either laughing or laughing to keep from crying. At an early age, Liz entered into a relationship with Jesus Christ. Aunt Liz often reminded her family that she could not have walked the streets of New York City without God on her side. Aunt Liz found peace and solace with God during her life even until her last breath, as she entered eternal rest from her labors on Saturday, 14 March 2020
Liz leaves her entire family of nieces, nephews, cousins, and many friends to cherish her precious and unforgettable memories: Liz experienced relaxation with a furry friend who she was smitten with, her dog “Milo.” Notably, Aunt Liz shared a remarkable relationship with her niece Gulina (Richard L. Brown)), niece Brenda (Eddie), grand-niece Lashi, and her niece-in- law, Ivenia. Aunt Liz shared an exceptional relationship with her predeceased nephew “Buck” Herbert.
Aunt Liz would always tell her family that she came from “abroad” and that she would always keep her “conscience clear.” Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God, Matthew 5:8. Indeed, Aunt Liz kept her conscience clear and she sought peace and solace with God during her life, even until her last breath, as she transitioned and entered into eternal rest from her labors, on Saturday, 14 March 2020. Aunt Liz’s last sentiments: “I don’t regret anything about my life, I had a good life” Today, we celebrate and honor the life and legacy of our Aunt Liz.
