Elizabeth “Liz” Anderson entered this world on August 30, 1940, to the late Kelly James and Luvada Carter in Havelock, North Carolina. On February 6, 2024, in the twinkling of an eye she peacefully entered eternal rest at the Riverview Medical Center in Red Bank, New Jersey.


In her early years Liz attended the Craven County School District in Havelock, North Carolina. She gave her life to Christ at an early age. After her graduation from school, she made her way to New Jersey.


She met and married John Anderson in February 1963, from this union there were two sons, Lavance Anderson, and Terry Anderson.

Always willing to offer help, she worked as the overseer for the weekly food distribution for the community. She was always willing to help people in the church and community. People relied on Liz for rides to the doctors or errands to the grocery store. She even cooked meals for members of the church who were sick and shut in. She was famous for her chicken noodle soup.

As we bid farewell to this faithful woman of God, let us find solace in knowing that her spirit will continue to inspire us all to seek the Lord and her legacy of faith, love and peace will live on through the countless life’s she touched.


Liz has gained her wings; Heaven has gained an ANGEL!
