Online Condolences for Elizabeth Bean ( January 21, 1926 ~ October 11, 2017)

October 20, 2017
To the Family, Please accept my sincere condolences. Losing a dear loved one can cause so much sorrow. The Bibles assures at Psalm 34:18 that God "is close to the brokenhearted,He saves the who are crushed in spirit". May His Word be a source of comfort during this difficult time. — Donna Howard (, MD)

Libby and I meet in BSF, I will always think of her with great affection. I had her for 2 years and was thrilled to see her name on the list of ladies that would be in my group. Her story, life matterd and was not complete on this earth until God said "it's complete She is now in the glorious grace and arms of her Lord having heard the words"Well done my good and faithful servant" That is what she was indeed Maie sullivan (Bozeman, MT)

My condolences to Libby's family. I always enjoyed a quick visit with her as I passed her to visit with my mom. She always had a smile on her face and her eyes were so kind.Even last Tuesday I made sure to say hello and received her standard bright smile. As I lost my own mom just a week ago and a half, I understand the difficulty of this loss. God's peace to all of you! Your dear one was special to me. Shirley Vanderstelt (, MT)
