Elizabeth Ellen Thompson

September 16, 1950 - January 10, 2024

Elizabeth Ellen Thompson, lovingly known as "Piney" to her family, left this world to go be with Jesus and her precious Gramps on January 10, 2024, following a long-term illness. Born in Christiansburg, Va., on September 16, 1950, she is preceded in death by her mother, Jane Wheeland Gillock and two sons, David and Michael.

Elizabeth had many things in life that gave her joy, namely, her children, grandchildren, and her dog, “Baby Girl,” who passed several years ago. She also loved all of her faithful clients, Harley Davidson motorcycles, flea markets, beautiful clothes and high heels -- she always looked beautiful. She was a huge Willie Nelson fan, and her favorite places were the country, barns, and our beloved cabin, Kandota. Elizabeth had a big heart and would help anyone who needed it.

Those Elizabeth leaves behind to mourn are her son, Alan (Shelly); four grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; father, Richard E. Gillock; two sisters, Barbara Maier and Carol Dean (Jim); cousins, Caroline Calkins and John Blair; as well as two dear friends, Don and Cathy.

Per Elizabeth’s wishes, there will be no services; she simply asks that everyone remembers her love and laughter. The chorus of this inspirational hymn sums up her love of life and love of God: “Then sings my soul, my Saviour God to Thee, How Great Thou Art, How Great Thou Art!”

Until we meet again…
