Elizabeth Grace Gurley, affectionately known as “Beth” or “Libit,” passed away peacefully on August 20, 2023, in Jacksonville, Florida, at the age of 63. She was born on May 3, 1960, in High Point, North Carolina. Elizabeth was a devoted daughter, loving mother, cherished nana, and a dear sister, aunt, and friend.
Elizabeth found solace and excitement at the beach, where she searched for sharks’ teeth and reveled in the beauty of seashells. She adored animals, especially her cats, and enjoyed baking, gardening, and the constant companionship of music.
Above all, Elizabeth’s greatest happiness came from spending time with her family, leaving behind a legacy of love and kindness.
Elizabeth is survived by her daughter, Jennifer (Jonathan) Greene; grandchildren, Caitlyn, Haley, and Ryan; mother, Alice Gurley; sisters, Mary (Rich) Ayres and Alice (Mike) Napoli; brothers, Richard (Christine) Gurley, Phil Gurley, Mark Gurley, and David Gurley; Uncle John; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
She was preceded in death by her father, James Richard Gurley, whose memory remains cherished by all who knew him.
Elizabeth’s memory will remain etched in our hearts, a testament to the warmth and love she brought into our lives. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
A church service will be held at a later date.
