Ms. Parrish was born in New Brockton, Alabama. Elizabeth was a proud member of River of Life Church in Phenix City, Al. She was a teacher and scholar of God’s word, a prayer warrior, and General in the Lord’s army. She immensely enjoyed being with her family, reading and watching game shows. She passed on her curiosity and love of learning to many of us.
Elizabeth loved people and her deep empathy for others was infused in every aspect of her life. She was a peacemaker and lover of lost souls. She left a legacy of ongoing love, encouragement, and care for others. The family wishes to extend a special thanks for the many prayers we’ve felt so richly during our loss.
