Elizabeth Ann Smith Andrus Obituary
Elizabeth Ann Smith Andrus We remember that Elizabeth Ann Smith Andrus passed away to join her Heavenly Father on June 1, 2013. She passed away peacefully with her husband present and with the love of her incredible children, family, friends and acquaintances fully known to her. She fought a courageous and inspiring battle against lung cancer and won. She loved all! Elizabeth was a faithful believer and recently became a member of Austin Ridge Bible Church. Other than her family and friends, Elizabeth's passion was volunteering at Open Arms in Austin. She developed many friendships with the women there. She also had a passion for sharing Christ with children. She even continued to lead her daughter's Sunday school class at Austin Ridge over the last several months. Elizabeth was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on June 27, 1967 to Leslie and Shirley Smith. Elizabeth lived in many different countries including the Democratic Republic of the Congo, South Korea, Uruguay and Great Britain. She eventually moved back to The Lone Star State before her junior year of high school. She graduated from The Hockaday School in Dallas, Texas. She earned an undergraduate degree from Trinity University in San Antonio and a law degree from The Catholic University in Washington, D.C. Elizabeth worked as an independent defense attorney and later as an Assistant District Attorney in Travis County, Texas. As an Assistant D.A. she helped children have a voice in Child Protective Services related cases. In 2002 Elizabeth married her beloved husband David Andrus after they initially met in their church Sunday school class at Westlake Hills Presbyterian Church in Austin. Elizabeth was an avid runner with Gilbert's Gazelles running group. Elizabeth always took time to read books and she enjoyed writing. She was an AmeriCAN not an AmeriCAN'T.
