She and Roy were married Oct. 2, 1948, in Decatur.
A memorable tradition back then was the groom pushed the bride in a wheelbarrow around the courthouse square, and he did just that! They were married 66 years. Roy and Liz were active members of Castleberry Baptist Church in Fort Worth, making many friendships that continued throughout the years.
Liz was preceded in death by her parents; her loving husband, Roy; and her brother, Sam Rose.
