Elizabeth “Betsy” Stubblefield passed away on April 8, 2020, at her home in Liberty Hill, Texas.
She was born May 26, 1957, in Beaumont, Texas, to Lindsay and Patricia Boykin, and lived in Southeast Texas until relocating to the Hill Country in her mid-20’s. She later moved to Grapevine, TX, but came to call Liberty Hill home the past 22 years.
Elizabeth married her husband of 43 years, Tommy, in 1974, and they were together until his death in 2017. They had a passion for the care of animals opening their home to numerous foster dogs – especially Brittany Spaniels. Together, they opened Fiber Horizons Recycling, which they ran for over 25 years.
Elizabeth loved being amongst people and never met a stranger. Her friends in Liberty Hill and surrounding communities meant the world to her. She especially loved her granddaughters and made sure to always have something special for them during each visit.
She was the eternal student, always studying some unique piece of history, which she readily shared through school programs and historical events. She immensely enjoyed being outdoors gardening, hunting, or simply working in her yard.
Elizabeth is survived by her son and his wife, Austin and Courtney Stubblefield, along with their daughters Ava and Avery. She is also survived by her mother Patricia Aitken of Houston, her sister Kathy Lamb of Houston, her brother Lindsay Boykin Jr. of Plano, and her sister Pam Mehaffy of White Salmon, Oregon, as well as numerous nieces and nephews whom she loved dearly.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Tommy Stubblefield, daughter, Ash Lorraine Stubblefield, and her brother, Patrick Boykin.
A Memorial Service is pending and will be held at the best available opportunity.
In the spirit of Elizabeth’s love for animals, donations are welcome and can be made to Brittany Rescue in Texas (brittanyrescueintexas.org).
