Lizzetta M. Caldwell Obituary
Caldwell, Lizzetta M.
1934 - 2018
Lizzetta M. Caldwell, 84, born on January 3, 1934, to the late parents of Emil O. Schuchardt, Sr. and Garnet G. Moats. Preceded in death also by her husband of 48 years, Paul E. Caldwell, twin sister Henrietta Woods, and sister Donna Jo McNeil, brother Emil O. Schuchardt, Jr., and two adult children: a daughter Patricia Dean and her son Paul "David" Caldwell. Patti's four babies, Kimberly and Jennifer New, and Richard and Patrick Dean; and several others, a niece and nephew, cousins, grandparents, Noah and Elizabeth Sanders. Lizzetta is survived by her son, Walter "Brian" Caldwell of Columbus, Ohio; children, Daniel, Aaron, Hazel and Denizhen "Grant" Caldwell; and her daughter, Theresa "Creasie" (Kyle) Watkins of Columbus, Ohio. A brother, Bill (Glenda) Moats of Hope, Indiana. A sister, Sue Pauley of Columbus, Ohio. And several nieces, nephews, and family and friends in Southern Ohio. A special honorary sister and brother-adopted by the family is Kenny and Louise Holcomb and their family. We love our family and as we call it; extended FRAMILY. Lizzetta was a member of the Worthington Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star. Lizzetta gave her heart to the Lord when she was just six years old. As a teenager she, her mother, and her twin sister formed a Trio and sand at many of the churches in the Mercerville and Gallia County area. Lizzie loved to lift her voice in praises to the King of Kings; and Lord of Lords. She even took lessons to play the organ at the church; as she wanted to do her best for the Lord. Lizzetta taught a Six Year old Girls Sunday School class. Then, later, an Adult Special Needs class; to impart God's Holy words into people is what she had a true passion for. She taught her four children the phrase "What would Jesus Do?" way before it was popular. In around 1970 or after the birth of her fourth child; David, was born with Downs Syndrome, Lizzetta and Paul E. were asked to participate in a panel open discussion to describe and help new doctors understand the strengths and weaknesses and share, where as parents; the challenges families faced daily. Lizzetta worked at Columbus Psychiatric Hospital in 1955. Then worked at Columbus Developmental Center as a Medical Typist. Later when her jobs was about to be abolished, she received a call from the Bureau of Workers Compensation asking her to come in for an interview. She was able to retire in 1998 with 30 years in with the State of Ohio. Lizzetta's life wasn't always easy, but Lizzie did not complain. She would simply say "Ok", look to God praying always, then looking for solutions to whatever life was handing her. Individuals watched her in amazement. She was her husband's treasure to love and keep forever; their love would survive. Every time she looked at her rings; the symbol of their love and token; if you will; Lizzetta remembered in fondness and love their vows; one last time, as we look at her rings during her hospital stay, we removed those rings one last time. Lizzetta left this world on April 4, 2018; knowing we will meet again. We have hope because of Christ Jesus, living in our hearts. Apostle Paul wrote it best: IICor. 5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Forever, Gracious, Loving God; We Praise You for taking care of Lizzetta, now; and forever resting in Your loving arms. In Jesus Name, We Pray, Amen. Family will welcome guests from 4-7 p.m. Friday, April 6, 2018 at the Schoedinger Grove City Chapel, 3920 Broadway with the Order of the Eastern Star service following the visitation. There will be a brief visitation at the church before the funeral from 9-10 AM a.m. Funeral Service at 10 a.m. at Pleasantview Baptist Church, 2485 Gantz Road, Grove City, Ohio 43123. Rev. John Dunn, presiding. Interment at Glen Rest Memorial Gardens, 8029 E. Main Street, Reynoldsburg, Ohio 43068. Visit www.schoedinger.com to extend condolences or watch her tribute video.
