Elizabeth B. Wilbur

(Sep 10, 1915 to Oct 7, 2010)

Among her many wonderful traits was her ability to keep a secret. If a friend needed to discuss something Liz was the lady to see. She was a lifelong member of Bethesda UM Church and didn’t just warm the pew. Her Christian nature led her to get involved: she taught Sunday school, was on the Official Board, and was a member of the Tri C class. Being kind and loving came natural to her. rnIn many ways she was ahead of her time. In 1933 she graduated from Swedesboro High then attended Drexel Institute of Technology School of Design. During WWII she studied mechanical engineering through Rutgers University extension classes then was employed with E.I. DuPont as a draftsman.rnEven though Liz was a busy lady she still found time to sew, swim and spend time with her family. After retiring she and her husband traveled to Europe many times. Later years found her residing at Pitman Manor.rnShe was wife of the late Harold. Their marriage was blessed with a daughter , Joanie Wiant (Virgil) of Rock Cave, WV and a son Steven of Mickleton, and a grandson, Brett Wilbur of Mickleton. She is also survived by sisters Virginia Norton of Pedricktown and Louise Hoover (Paul) of Levittown, Pa. Liz was predeceased by a brother, Earl Butler and sister, Dorothy Bennett.rnCome celebrate 95 wonderful years Tuesday from 9:30AM at Daley Life Celebration Studio, Swedesboro where the service will be at 10:30 AM. Burial Eglington Cemetery. rnDonations in memory of Elizabeth can be made to the American Cancer Society, 1851 Old Cuthbert Rd, Cherry Hill NJ 08034.rnrn”I’d Like the memory of me to be a happy one, I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when day is done. I’d Like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways of happy times and laughing time and bright and sunny days. I’d like the tears of those who grieve to dry before the sun, of happy memories that I leave behind when the day is done.”rnrn
