S. Elizabeth Roth, 88, of Greenville, Ohio, formerly of Ansonia, Ohio went to be with the Lord on Sunday, April 14, 2019, surrounded by her loving family.
She was born on March 13, 1931 in Miami County, Ohio to the late Cline and Mary (Bowman) Wray.
In addition to her parents, Elizabeth was preceded in death by her husband, William K. Roth, whom she married on August 28,1948.
Elizabeth was a dedicated lady who valued the Lord and her family. When she was not tending to her children, you could find her out on the family farm with her husband. No chore was too great for Elizabeth. You could find her in the milking parlor, on a tractor in the fields, or cleaning the milk house after morning and evening milking. Aside from the farm, Elizabeth worked at Uhlman's in Greenville as a gift wrapper and helped in shipping and receiving. She loved the outdoors, gardening, planting flowers, and feeding the birds. Elizabeth was a faithful follower of the Lord. She attended the Ansonia First Church of God for many years with her husband. When she moved to town, she attended the Greenville Missionary Church. Most importantly, Elizabeth loved her family. For many years, the family would gather on Sunday evenings for a family night.
