MARETT, Elizabeth (Guest)
ELIZABETH G. MARETT, LIZ 98, went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, April 26, 2008. Liz was born on March 19, 1910 in Warren, Arkansas, to Roy and Beatrice Guest. The second of five children, she grew up in Arkansas, Mississippi, and Oklahoma, helping her parents in their clothing stores. She attended Business College and Oklahoma College for Women before moving to Houston where she started her career with Anderson Clayton & Co. Liz loved life. She loved raising her boys, her family life, and people. She loved working, learning new things, going to garage sales, painting, sewing, gardening, traveling, antiquing, volunteering, emailing her friends and playing card games on her computer far into her 90's. She loved her grandkids. She cooked, sewed, and played games with them, went to their ball games and school plays, listened to them, and watched them grow. But most of all, Liz loved the Lord. She read her Bible regularly. She was a long time member of First Baptist Church, the Maranatha Sunday school class, and Texas Christian Women's Association. She enjoyed over 20 years as a volunteer stuffing envelopes for KHCB Christian Radio. Liz was preceded in death by her parents, brothers Roy and Walter, and her beloved husband Fred of 58 years. She is survived by her brother Bill and sister Annette; sons Fred, Rodney, Robert and his wife Susan; grandchildren Scott, Jennifer, Jamie, Stephanie, Fred, Ron, Bryan, Sharon, and Joel, and numerous great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
