Elizabeth Sue Duckworth April 24, 2002 – December 9, 2012 Elizabeth, better known as "Lizzie", "Sis", or "Sister", brought a little piece of heaven to earth when she was born ten and on ehalf years ago. She was full of life, love, and happiness. Everywhere she went she brought joy. She was the perfect example of God's un-ending love, patience, and forgiveness. She had struggles in her short life, but she never lost her smile. She found a reason to laugh in every situation. She loved her music and her noisy toys. She loved to be cuddled and tickled and pushed in her swing. She smiled in the sunshine and laughed in the wind. Saying that she will be missed does not express the depth of our loss. We will see her again in Heaven, singing and dancing like she always wanted to do! Lizzie was preceded in death by her Grandpa Brian. Many remain, waiting for the day they will see her again, her parents, Austin and Niki; her brothers, Gavin and Liam; her grandparents, Vaughn and Laken Duckworth, Gary and Marsha Reeves, Richard and Sue Berry, and Terry Yarbrough. She has many aunts, uncles, and cousins who treasure her dearly. Her family grew quite large, full of loving teachers, doctors, nurses, and therapists - each had a special place in her life. A visitation will be held at Callahan-Edfast Mortuary on Thursday, December 13, from 5 - 7:00 p.m. A memorial service will be held at Bethel Assembly of God on Friday, December 14, at 3:00 p.m. Donations may be made at Coloramo Federal Credit Union to the Elizabeth Sue Duckworth memorial fund, under the name of Gary Reeves.
