Elizabeth Ann Galloway

April 15, 1958 — July 15, 2023

Vancleave

 

Elizabeth Ann Galloway was born April 15, 1958, to proud and happy parents, Perry and Dixie Gautier, She and her sister, Choyce May, brought great joy to her immediate family and to the close-knit extended family that lived nearby. The sisters were wrapped, spiritually and physically, in love and joy as they grew up. They were more than sisters; they were best friends throughout their lives. Elizabeth was a graduate of Gautier Middle School, Pascagoula High School, and the University of Southern Mississippi. She excelled as a basketball player and as a member of the school bands at Gautier and Pascagoula. She was head drum majorette at both and was selected for the prestigious Mississippi Lions Club Band. She marched in the inauguration parade for President Jimmy Carter, and she attended the University of Southern Mississippi on a band scholarship.

Elizabeth Ann died peacefully in her sleep early in the morning of July 15, 2023, after a long battle with cancer. She fought stoically, with dignity and grace, even with beauty and a pleasant attitude, that demonstrated the solid faith of a true Christian to everyone she met.

Elizabeth is preceded in death by her parents, by her first husband, Jim Stewart, and by two grandsons: Allen Lewis and Chase Galloway.

She is survived by her husband, Harold Lee (Hal) Galloway, by her sister, Choyce May Cochran (husband Chris) and their three children: Cathleen, Chad and Corey, by four grandchildren: Adam Lewis, Kendall Tinson, Dwight Watkins, Jr., and Savanna Galloway, by six great grandchildren, by a step daughter, Judy Lewis, and by a step son-in-law, Henry (Hank) Lewis and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and a host of friends, classmates and fellow Christians.

Elizabeth had a personality that lit up a room when she entered. She always demonstrated the love and caring that her savior, Jesus Christ, taught and expected of her. She was an avid and dedicated worker in churches in Memphis, Hickory Flat, New Albany, Ocean Springs and Vancleave. She brought joy and pleasantness to everything she did. She kept such a smile and kind attitude about her that few of her closest friends realized how difficult her battle with cancer had become. Many expressed surprise at her sudden passing.
