In Memory

Elizabeth Carpenter (Manning)

Elizabeth Carpenter (Manning)

Services for Elizabeth Manning, 69 of Tyler, will be held on Wednesday, October 30, 2013, at 2:00 PM at Stewart Family Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. Melvin Wood and Rev. Jim Copeland officiating.

A private burial will be held in Jacksonville under the direction of Stewart Family Funeral Home.

Elizabeth passed away Sunday, October 27, 2013 of congestive heart failure combined with a severe infection.

She was born April 25, 1944 in Houston to Jimmy Leroy and Cleo Carpenter.

Elizabeth was a loving, giving, and compassionate woman. Proverbs 31 well describes her in many ways, “…She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue…Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring praise at the city gate.”

Elizabeth loved. The biggest and most important thing about her is that she loved people. Thanksgiving and Christmas always had extra place settings at the table for other’s whose family’s lived too far away and or for those who had no family…she was their family. She was a woman of God who prayed faithfully for others, with such loyalty and dedication that several people have asked “Who is going to pray for me now?”

Elizabeth was a wife for over 51 years, a mother and Nana. She was the biggest cheerleader and wonderful role model. She loved to read, watch old English movies, and from time to time you might find her coloring in her favorite coloring book. To sum it up, she loved BIG!

Elizabeth was preceded in death by her parents. She is survived by her loving family including her husband of 51 years Glenn Manning of Tyler; daughter, Misty Hopper of Tulsa, OK; and grandson Zachary Hopper.

Elizabeth was always one of my favorite people.  We were in the same homeroom for

years and she was always a fun person to be around.  She was good hearted and positive

about life, always kind to everyone.  Glenn, I know you will truly miss the love of your life.

Sincerely,  Dolores

Dear Glenn,

Please accept my most sincerely offered sympathy at the death of your darlilng wife, Liz. 

I have never forgotten the image that I have kept in my mind all these years of you and Liz walking through the halls in high school holding hands.  It was obvious even all the way back then that you both had found the love of your life.

I know that you will miss her terribly and I hope your knowing that I care will help in some small way.

Glenn:   My deepest sympathy to you and your family on the death of Liz.  Y'all were the "perfect" couple throughout our days in high school.  I pray your many wonderful years together will be a comfort to you and your family in your time of sorrow.

 I was shocked and dismayed to hear of Liz's demise.  I think of us all as we last saw each other and that is often much different than what is true.  When I last saw Liz, we were both younger than today.

I know you you will miss her terribly and my heart goes out to you and your family.

I was so sorry to hear about Liz.  I know you how much you will miss her.   Having lost Billy, I can feel your pain..  I remember how tiny her hands were, and her cute laugh!  My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

     I am so sorry to hear of Liz's death, and my heart goes out to you , Glenn,  and all your family.  Reading her obituary created a clear picture of the loving person she was.  Your fifty years of marriage is an inspiration to all of us.


   My Love, Narcissa
