Field, Elizabeth L.

1/9/1926 - 4/3/2017

Elizabeth L. Field, faithful, loyal wife, loving, forgiving mother and grandmother, entered into the presence of her Lord on April 3rd, 2017. Born in Sesser, Illinois, she was a child of the Great Depression. She learned from the beginning how to make do with little and how to appreciate what she had.

As a young girl she sang hymns at the Pacific Garden Mission in Chicago, accompanied by her mother at the piano. She never lost her love for the Lord or music. She took up gardening after moving to Albuquerque and transformed her yard in the valley into a park. Another favorite activity was entertaining friends, often surprising them with new recipes never tried before.

She is preceded in death by her husband of nearly 68 years, Paul Lester, and survived by sons Randall William & Thomas Kent, and grandchildren Samuel, Sarah, Jesse, Micah & many friends.

A memorial service celebrating her life will be held Sat., April 15th, 2017, at Heights Cumberland Presbyterian Church, 8600 Academy Rd. NE, in Albuquerque. Funeral services are being handled by Daniels Family, 7601 Wyoming NE, in Alb. Interment will follow at a later date at the National Cemetery in Santa Fe, NM.

In lieu of flowers, please give memorial donations to the New Mexico Chapter, .
