Elizabeth Dubbs

Monday, October 24th, 2016

Elizabeth Dubbs left the shackles of this life to be with her Lord on October 21, 2016. She was born on February 21, 1946, to Jay and Polly Haight in Syracuse, NY.
Elizabeth was loved by all her knew her. She had a giving heart and a smile always graced her face. She enjoyed joking with people and was ready to engage in conversation at the drop of a hat. She graduated with a BA from Syracuse University in child development.
Elizabeth’s life was complicated by a closed head injury in her late thirties, but that didn’t slow her down for many years. Lyman, Washington, was her adopted home and she had many friends and a faith community to support her. Finally, though, she was no longer able to live independently. Life Care Center of Skagit Valley has been her home for over six years. She received the best of care there and we are eternally grateful to them for the quality of life she had.
Surviving to cherish Elizabeth’s memory are her four sisters, Ann Haight (Steve Abney), Phyllis Grummon (David), Sally Oliver (Reid), and Barbara Hodges (John); her best friend, Bert Hartley; eight nieces and two nephews; two great-nephews and one great-niece. She was preceded in death by her parents, Jay & Polly and a brother, Jay Haight, III.
Elizabeth will be buried in Syracuse, NY. There will be no services. Cremation arrangements are under the direction of Lemley Chapel, Sedro-Woolley.

    My dearest Libby.
    It was only a few years ago that I found out where you were and I finally made the cross country trip to see you on October 2. I’m not at all sure you remembered me but we were childhood friends in Syracuse–through childhood and into early adulthood. Over all the years since I have so often missed you, remembering all our “adventures” and the wonder of having a true best friend. I will continue to miss you and be forever grateful that I got to see you one last time. Your BFF, Gail

    Elizabeth and I were friends for many years. I met her in church many years ago when I sat down beside her. She was a great prayer warrior and I can’t count how many times she prayed for my family. I have many great memories of our time together and I will miss her.

    Libby, I finally found you and I am so sad. The memories of our brief time together have always been dear to me. You will always be remembered for your kindness and love. Another chapter in my life closes. RIP
