BLACKSBURG, S.C. - Sarah Elizabeth "Lib" Jones Bolton, 90, of 351 Cherokee Falls Rd, passed away Wednesday, August 8th, 2018, at her home.

Born in the Camps Creek Community, NC she was the widow of Charles Bolton and the daughter of the late Gilbert Jones and Nola Holt Jones. Known by many as "Maw Maw Lib," she exemplified what a great grandmother should be. In fact, she spent a big portion of her life serving as a caregiver for her mother, children, and then her grandchildren. She always had a smile on her face and kind words to say, regardless of how she felt. If any of her children, grandchildren, or great-grandchildren had an event, Maw Maw Lib was always there to support them. She loved to garden and cook, and was always willing to share. Lib was a Christian for many, many years and was a proud supporter of her church, Pleasant Hill Baptist Church. Maw Maw Lib was a sweet, kind, and caring person who's physical presence will be missed. However, we can all be comforted in knowing that she is still watching us all.
