Elizabeth J. Pixley
84, devout Catholic, homemaker,
Elizabeth Jean Pixley, 84, passed away peacefully, Friday Oct. 25, 2013 at Luther Acres Healthcare Center in Lititz.
Raised in Philipsburg, she was the daughter of Catherine (McCliment) and Nicholas Rafferty. She graduated high school and went to work for the government in D.C. She returned a few years later and married Franklin Robert (Bob) Pixley in 1952. Together they moved to Lancaster and raised four children. Recently, they were blessed to celebrate their 61st wedding anniversary on Aug. 30, 2013.
Elizabeth was a devout Catholic and an avid reader. She was a wonderful dedicated wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was an outstanding homemaker and a fabulous baker, known for her picture perfect pies and breads. Earlier years were filled with great family camping trips and adventures to Black Moshannon Park and Sandy Cove in Cedar Neck, Del. Elizabeth loved visits from her children, grandchildren and great-granddaughter.
She will be deeply missed and is survived by her beloved husband: Bob; daughters: Maureen (Tyler) Foster of Melbourne Beach, Fla.; Susan (Michael) Steinbaecher of Brownstown; Tracy (Andrew) Martin of Lancaster and Michael (Amy) Pixley of Lititz; six grandchildren: Justin Foster; Sara Steinbaecher; Caitlyn and Christopher Martin and Nicholas and Jackie Pixley and a great-granddaughter: Harmony Martin. She was preceded in death by a grandson: Dustin Steinbaecher; sisters: Margaret Healy and Catherine Myers and brothers: Glenn, Nicholas, Pete and William. Mom will be truly missed, but we know she rests comfortably in the hands of God. Thank you to Luther Acres for the loving care they shared with Mom.
A mass of Christian burial was held Oct. 30 at St. John Neumann Catholic Church, Lancaster. Interment was in St. Joseph New Catholic Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, please make contributions in Elizabeth’s memory to St. John Neumann Catholic Church, 601 E. Delp Rd., Lancaster, PA 17601.
