    Scotty, we were so saddened to hear of Elizabeth’s passing. She had just shared the article about your being selected as a Board member of the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office Foundation and how proud she was of you!! Our memory is full of fabulous weekends at the point on Lake Norman and the good times we had sailing and enjoying the hospitality of the Sachsenmaier home! May God hold you close in His Embrace and see you through this time of sorrow!

    My friend for the last 30 years in the insurance business in Atlanta. We had great times at conventions and get togethers.

    She and I used to share yard work and plants as we lived close. We got to know her Mother and enjoyed fellowship with her. Johnsonferry Baptist was her church in Marietta and we often did Christmas at her church and ours.. Melinda and Johnny became our friends as well due to Elizabeth. WE know that she is in Heaven because she practiced what she believed in her daily life. To God be the glory! Elizabeth is well and home. Lew and Jerry Rowell

    Scotty and family, so sorry to hear of the passing of our cousin, Elizabeth. We didn’t communicate often. The last time I saw her was while visiting aunt Sally in Marietta over 10 years ago. They lived across the street from each other. You’re in our thoughts and prayers. Marsha, Glenda & Doug Gurganus.

    I would like to express my heartfelt condolences to you and your family on the loss of your mother and sister. When you see an individual that has been able to achieve such a long and full life as Mary has, family members May wonder why did my loved one have to die at all. But God gives us his personal promise found in the Bible at Revelation 21:4, where he tells us that very soon he will do away with death and sickness from the Earth forever, and then he will resurrect Mary to perfect life here on a fully cleansed Earth, being reunited with family and friends and being able to experience life as God meant it to be, which has always been God’s purpose for mankind and for his Earth.

  • So sorry to hear and my condolences to her Family. Enjoy my time on the NAIFA Board with her…especially after I learned to pronounce her last name! Great Lady for the Life Insurance Industry.
