Information from Little Cedar Lutheran Church:
Elizabeth was born November 17, 1888, and baptized December 16, 1888, at Adams, MN. She attended school in Adams and later was a student at Southern Minnesota Normal College at Austin, MN, beginning in 1904 and graduating in 1906.

She taught in rural schools - in 1915 at the McKinley School in Marshall township; in the Leroy area in 1918, and also there in 1920 and 1921. In 1919, she worked in a government position at Washington, DC. She studied in Mankato in the summer of 1921. During the summer she often taught at a number of places for Bible School. She taught school at Ellis, SD, and also at Spring Grove.

She was treasurer of the Austin Circuit Young People's Luther league from 1929-1931. She attended Lutheran Bible Institute in Minneapolis from 1931 until graduation in 1933.

When speaking at a Confirmation class reunion on October 15, 1934, she said one of her favorite Bible passages was Isaiah 41:10 - "Fear thou not; for I am with thee; be not dismayed; for I am thy God; I will strengthen thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness."

A favorite hymn is "Jesus Only" which was written by Samuel Miller, a Bible professor at L.B.I, and often sung at the school.

Elizabeth now resides at St. Mark's Home in Austin.
