Elizabeth was born on February 6, 1920 to the late Frank Hamilton Derrick, Sr. and Mattie Thursa Jordan Derrick in rural Hamilton county near Duffau, Texas. She graduated from Alexander high school in 1937 as valedictorian of her class. She graduated from John Tarleton Agricultural College in 1942, and received a Bachelor of Science degree in education from Texas Christian University in 1956. She did further study at Hardin Simmons University in Abilene.

Elizabeth was a member of the First Baptist Church of Fort Worth where she taught Sunday school for many years. She was also an avid bird watcher and was a member of the Audubon Society for years. Elizabeth loved her country, and was very active in the Erath County Republican party during her retirement years.

Elizabeth is survived by many nieces and nephews who loved her very much, and will never forget their “Aunt Elizabeth”.

Aunt Elizabeth was a very special lady. She always sent her great nieces and nephews books. During her visits she would play I spy with the children. She was loved by many.

We were saddened to hear about the demise of my Aunt Elizabeth. She was a lady of wisdom. Her thoughtful handwritten messages in her birthday and Christmas cards will forever live inside our hearts. Please know that Monina and I will create a permanent memory of Aunt Elizabeth and her love of birds by making a donation in her name to the National Audubon Society.
