Elizabeth graduated from Baroness Erlanger School of Nursing in Chattanooga, TN, in 1945. She became the Operating Room Supervisor at Erlanger Hospital in 1953 where she was known as “the legend” by doctors and staff. After retirement in 1982, she spent summers with her grandchildren and cooked for the campers at Alpine Camp for Boys. She loved to “run the roads” with her cronies and spread the town news.
She made everyone feel like they were the most important person she knew and treated all with love and respect. She would take your smallest problem and make it her own and was known for always doing the right thing. She will be loved and missed by many.
Elizabeth is survived by her daughter-in-law, Jeannie Turner Romans; grandchildren, Priscilla Romans Berarducci (Jon) and Cody Romans; great-granddaughter, Monroe Berarducci; several nieces and nephews; and many friends. She was preceded in death by her husband, Monroe Romans; son, William “Bill” Romans; siblings, Rufus C. Jones, Herbert Lovejoy Jones, Edward D. Jones, and Mary Louise Jones Cauthen.
Pallbearers: Ronnie Jones, Bobby Jones, Mike Shirey, Jay Martin, Nelson Stallings, & Kenneth McMunn.
The family would like to thank everyone who helped care for Elizabeth in her final years.
In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to Moon Lake Baptist Church, P.O. Box 423, Mentone, AL 35984.
