ANDERSON, Elizabeth Arnold

Sadly, we share the passing of Elizabeth Arnold Anderson, affectionately known as "Libby" on Saturday, the 16 of October 2021 after several years of trying to survive lymphoma cancer and treatments, NEVER GIVING UP! Her beloved husband, Andy who passed away in 2000, preceded her in death. She and Andy were both native Atlantans. Early in childhood, at the age of five she survived after a tree fell on her, crushing her shoulder and arm. After three months at Crawford Long Hospital, her life was saved by prominent physician, Dr. Luther Fischer who begged to adopt her but to no avail from her mother, Lexie Arnold. After graduating from school, happy days began as she pursued a career at Crawford Long School of Nursing. She loved it but was forced to discontinue nursing because of becoming pregnant. Determined to succeed through the years, she became interested in the auto industry and became an executive in the Motors Holding division at General Motors. After retiring, she began a very successful career as a Realtor at Northside Reality under the leadership of Johnny Isakson. She loved helping others find the best home for their family. A member of the Methodist faith, she loved music, traveling, boating on Lake Lanier, flower gardening, cheering for her favorite sports team, strolling the beach and was an avid Bridge player. She was a Yorkie lover, having had three of them; they brought her the biggest smiles. A great treasure for her were her neighbors, friends, and family and she will be sadly missed by her daughters, Linda Shulin of Dunwoody, Lexie Kreckman of Newnan; grandsons, Russell and Randall Shulin, Kevin, Mark, and Todd Pelfrey. She will be fondly remembered for "Living a long life", being "One of a kind" and "Being an Amazing Lady!" Memorial services celebrating her life will be held on Saturday, the 30 of October at Twelve o'clock, noon at H.M. Patterson & Son Arlington Chapel, 173 Allen Road, Sandy Springs. A private inurnment will follow at Greenwood Cemetery.
