Marie Elizabeth Stephenson, age 93, passed away November 2, 2012 after an extended illness. She was born in Clay County, WV on November 18, 1918.

She has now joined her beloved, heavenly family. Elizabeth was the last of several independent Stephenson women of her generation, in an era before women's liberation. She said it was an honor to have known such women. Elizabeth was the first to tell anyone she had a full, complete and interesting life. An avid reader, she enjoyed gardening and creative cooking that always included entertaining family and friends.

She graduated from Clay County High School and completed her education at the Charles School of Commerce in New York. Elizabeth's career spanned 38 years and included employment at the state capital. She retired with 25 years of service as private secretary to the president of Morris Harvey College, a position she thoroughly enjoyed.

A life-long member of the Bible Center Church in Charleston, Elizabeth enjoyed her involvement with the youth, teaching Sunday School at several different grade levels. She also was the Bible Center's first church clerk from its inception in the mid-1940's when Pastor Reid Jepson officiated.

Elizabeth is preceded in death by
her parents, Benjamin and Clara Stephenson;
brothers, Robert, Ed, Jake and Ben.

She is survived by her sister, Florence Davis;
nieces, Carolyn Colligan, Janice Drake, Judy Stephenson, Betty Miller, Shirley Jarrett, Ann Holiday and Carolyn Davis;
nephews, Michael Davis and Stephen Davis;
many great nieces and nephews.
