Elliott, Lou Nell (Trawick)



Lou Nell (Trawick) Elliott went to be with our Lord on February 20, 2017. She was born in Quitman, Arkansas on June 1, 1929 to Jack and Alice (Moore) Trawick. She was preceded in death by her husband of 61 years, Jack L. Elliott. She is survived by her two daughters, Dr. Elise Elliott, and Carey (Elliott) McIntyre and her husband John McIntyre; a granddaughter, Rebecca (McIntyre) Timmons and husband Scott Timmons; and three great grandchildren, Clara, Jack, and Lily Timmons; a sister, Marie (Trawick) Jordan and husband Ben Jordan; and many nieces and nephews. She graduated from Quitman High School in 1946. With her business skills, she joined the work force in 1947 working for Branton Construction as a clerk. By 1949 she had been promoted to bookkeeper. She was fiercely independent and believed in women's equality long before it was fashionable. She met the love of her life, Jack Elliott, and they were married in 1951. Her career included bookkeeping with various companies, and business manager for Elliott and Stevenson Realtors. She was a member of the Albuquerque Rose Society in the 1970's and held the office of Secretary and Committee Head for Miniature Roses. She won numerous awards and ribbons as an exhibitor in the NM State Fair with her miniature roses as well as hybrid tea roses. Lou was an avid doll collector, and was an integral part of getting the Barbie Doll "Ole" Convention to Albuquerque in 1995. She was a seamstress and designed the southwestern outfits for the Barbie's on display. She was active in the First Baptist Church of Los Lunas and worked on many sewing projects with her Sunday School class. She is best known for sewing beanbag FROGs which stands for "Fully Rely On God". She was loved as our Mother, Friend and Counselor. She cherished her granddaughter and great grand-children. All services will be celebrated on Friday, February 24, 2017 at the First Baptist Church of Los Lunas, beginning with the Funeral Service at 10:00 AM, and viewing will take place at 11:00 AM.
