Eliza Mae "Miz Liz" Jones Latta
Birth: Feb. 21, 1942
North Carolina, USA
Death: Aug. 19, 2011
Wake County
North Carolina, USA

One of ten children, Liz was born February 21, 1942, here in Central North Carolina. She had five children and fourteen grandchildren, all of whom she loved dearly.

Miz Liz was a hard-working mom who not only loved, provided for, and raised her own children well, but who also spent the latter part of her adult life as a nanny, loving and helping raise the children of other families who grew to love her as their own.

On May 10, 1991, Miz Liz was born again, and from that moment she became part of an even larger family that was blessed to know her and call her sister. Her faith was steadfast, her witness bold, her love genuine, and her joy contagious. She was an encouragement to all. The praises of our Lord and Savior were ever on her lips, regardless of the circumstances she found herself walking in. By her words and by her example, Miz Liz gently challenged others to trust the Lord more fully, praise Him more openly, walk humbly, give generously, and testify to the work of Christ on our behalf without shame and without fear.

This kind, gracious, faith-filled woman touched lives beyond measure as she served the purposes of God in her generation and in the body of Christ. Her life brought glory to God, and all are richer for knowing her.

A much loved mother, grandmother, nanny, and friend, Eliza Mae Latta will be greatly missed.

1 Corinthians 15:22

Liz is survived by her children: Ronald L. Boyd and his wife Amelia, Lorraine (Billie) L. Boyd, Anthony L. Boyd and his wife Karen, Timothy O. Boyd and Jonnette Smith as well as 14 grandchildren.
Her siblings: Nancy Ruth, Elizabeth Boyd, Sallie Ray, Lemuel Jones, Bertis Jones, "Bro" Jones and Monroe Jones.
