BOSSIER CITY – On October 16th, 1938, Elizabeth was born to Robie and Bertha Johnson in Bogalusa, Louisiana. On March 3rd, 2017 Elizabeth Halsey, an amazing woman, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother left this world to be reunited with her husband, Dorse Halsey. There will be a Celebration of Life held at Hill Crest Funeral Home on Tuesday, March 7th, 2017 at 2:00 PM with Brother Nathan Luellen officiating. Burial will follow at Hill Crest Memorial Park. The family will be receiving friends for visitation on Monday, March 6th, 2017 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM at the funeral home.
Elizabeth is preceded in death by her brothers, and sisters, Jewel, Richard, Jeneva, and Josephine.
She is survived by her daughter, Patricia and Husband James; Son, Bruce. Also surviving Elizabeth are her grandchildren, Ashley and husband Jon, Nathan, Brittany, James and wife Lindsay, and Rachel and husband Kenny; her great-grandchildren include Gracie, Sydney, Sadie, Liliana, Gabryell, and Liam.
Elizabeth loved the outdoors and working in her garden. The only love greater than what she felt for her children and grandchildren was the love for her Savior and her church.
Honoring Elizabeth as pallbearers will be family and honorary pallbearers will be the deacons of Stockwell Road Missionary Baptist Church.
The family would like to thank the Willis Knighton Cancer Center Staff, Dr. Patel, Lanie, and Haley for all your kindness during Elizabeth’s illness. They would also like to thank Julie Vail for her gentle care of Elizabeth in her final days.
In lieu of flowers the family asks you to donate to the American Cancer Foundation so we may find a cure for this awful disease one day.
