Elizabeth Ann Miller, age 81 of Marion, passed away on Sunday, November 15, 2020 at Marion General Hospital. She was born on February 18, 1939 in Marion to the late Burl and Edna (Martin) Fritch.
Elizabeth earned her associate’s degree in accounting, and she spent 3 years working as a nurse’s aide at East Lawn Manor. She was a fan of NASCAR, and she loved having her chili soup with potato chips. She also enjoyed crime dramas, especially NCIS. She was an avid reader who loved her books and had quite a collection, and her favorite authors were James Patterson and Ann B. Ross. She also loved black coffee – and a lot of it. She was known for her straightforwardness, her earnestness, and her wit, and she will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
She is survived by her daughter Susan (Robert) Pitchford of Caledonia; her sister Roberta (Monte) Siler of High Point, North Carolina; and her grandson Tyler (Jessica) Pitchford.
She was preceded in death by her parents Burl and Edna Fritch and her siblings Violet Louise and Jim Fritch.
