Sarah Elizabeth "Liz" Earp, 16, of Kenly, died Thursday, June 14, 2012 as a result of an automobile accident.

Liz was born on August 25, 1995 in Wilson County to Lee Earp and Melissa R. Earp. She was a rising junior at Princeton High School. She enjoyed working with children and had volunteered at Princeton Middle School in the Childhood Development Class.

The family intends to honor her by making certain that the joyful spirit and laughter in this family returns in full force. They understand that this effort will require time and the help of their extended family and many dear and wonderful friends. The family finds hope in the fact that, though Liz was surrounded by love in her life, she is now experiencing the perfect love of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

The funeral was Monday, June 18 at The Bridge (Princeton Campus) with Rev. Chuck Gentry and Rev. Andy Stovall officiating. Interment was Tuesday, June 19 at Evergreen Memorial Cemetery.

In addition to her parents, she is survived by her sister, Christina Bottoms and husband, Greg; her maternal grandparents, Elbert and Betty Jo Richardson and her niece, Ashlyn Bottoms.

Kenly teen killed in accident on Princeton-Kenly Road

Sarah Elizabeth Earp, 16, of Kenly died last night after an accident on Princeton-Kenly Road.

According to the State Highway Patrol, Earp was speeding when she lost control of her 2004 Chevrolet SUV around 8 p.m., overcorrected, and ran into a ditch and hit a tree. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The accident occurred about two miles east of I-95.

She was a rising junior at Princeton High School.

Earp's passenger, Stephanie Heaton, 17, was airlifted to WakeMed following the accident, and as of Friday (today) morning her condition is fair.

Both Earp and Heaton were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the accident, but that speed and driver inexperience were the main factors in the deadly crash, authorities said.
