The memories of Elizabeth will be ones I'll always hold dear. She was a determined, headstrong woman who often "did her good deeds in secret" (though when she needed to, she definitely knew how to get your attention!). Hers was a life well-lived, and I pray for peace and togetherness for her family.

Elizabeth Peckham was a pint-sized Southern belle, both gracious and graceful. Her deep love of God, her family, her friends and neighbors, and even the birdies was a wonderful example for my daughters to witness as they grew up next door. We send our most sincere condolences to Elizabeth's family on this loss. We know her reunion with John and Kenneth has been a blessed event. We'll love Elizabeth always ~

Very sorry to learn of Elizabeth's passing. My deepest condolences to her family. She was so dedicated, loving, and tirelessly devoted to my father that words simply cannot express my appreciation nor my admiration. She had a great sense of humor, and an infectious laugh. However, the one thing I remember most about her as a young boy growing up was her cooking! My whole day would be planned around mealtimes! I would have seconds, thirds, ....and fourths! Thank you Elizabeth!
Rest In Peace.

Mrs. Peckham was like another Grandma to me. I move moved in next door when I was five years old and my family still lives there. She taught me how to crochet with the patience of a saint. I learned many a fun Southern expression from her, too. I will miss her and look forward to our reunion one day in heaven!

Elizabeth has been my "adopted mom" for the last 15 years. She will always hold a most precious place in my heart. So sad for all of us here, but so happy for her that she is in a joyous place with her momma and John. A beautiful part of our lives is gone from us, but will always remain present at the same time. So blessed to be a part of such a precious life.
