Elizabeth Jeanette Whitaker, 60. There are angels who walk among us here on Earth, just as surely as there are angels in Heaven. Late Monday afternoon, God called one of His Earthly angels home. She was known by several titles, including daughter, sister, aunt, wife, mother, and grandmother. Her given name was Elizabeth Jeanette (Black) Whitaker but to those who loved her most, she was simply called Mom, and Mamaw. Born on March 11, 1957, Jeanette was the third of four children born to Joseph and Sarah Black, of Anniston. She was a 1975 graduate of Anniston High School, and later that year married her only husband, Al Whitaker, also of Anniston. She was blessed with three children, Jennifer, Michael and Christopher, and later with three grandchildren, Logan, Madelyn and Bella. She follows her parents, older brother, Kenneth Black and brother-in-law, Luther Dutton to their Heavenly home. Left behind to cherish her memory is her daughter and angel in training, Jennifer Bentley and her husband, Brian, of Decatur; sons, Michael Whitaker and his wife, Lindsey, of Decatur, and Christopher Whitaker, of Tanner; sisters, Dorothy Dutton and Barbara Black, of Anniston; grandchildren, Logan and Madelyn Bentley, of Decatur and Bella Spitler, of Lawrence County, along with numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and a plethora of pseudo children. While her passing leaves a terrible void in all of our hearts, we know an angel now watches over us and that one day we will all be together once again. What a glorious day that will be. Visitation will be held at Roselawn Funeral Home, 741 Danville Rd., Decatur, AL on Tuesday, January 30, 2018 from 2-3 p.m. with the celebration of life to immediately follow.
