Elizabeth Love Reed

May 23, 1971 ~ September 27, 2020 (age 49)


Elizabeth Love Reed, daughter of Evelyn Solomon and K.F Bush, was born May 23, 1971 in the Piney Woods of Longview, Texas. Elizabeth was not short on talent and pursued numerous activities, such as being a member of the Lady Lobo Basketball team, delivered her time and resources to the Big Green Marching Machine Boosters, diligently held her position of Safety Manager, a dutiful servant of Christ, and most affectingly, a doting wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, aunt, niece, cousin, and unparalleled friend.

Elizabeth was a true example of perseverance in life and carried herself with a Job-like faith. She was selfless within her privilege as a mother. She was unrivaled in commitment within her duty as an Environmental Health and Safety Manager. Any and All of the roles she played in life were done with grace, perseverance, strength, humility, and dependability.

The unyielding faith Elizabeth displayed acted as an anchor to her life; throughout turmoil, she never faltered for those closest to her. She was a woman of inner joy and could be satisfied with her family being happy, traveling, listening to her praise and worship music, constantly reiterating “Safety first”, and spending time enjoying luxurious retail therapy.

Education was important to her and she set an example by receiving her Bachelor’s of Science in Occupational Health Safety from Columbia Southern University.

Elizabeth was preceded in death by her dear mother Evelyn Solomon.

She leaves behind a rich legacy of all the people she touched and loved unconditionally; her love of 33 years, Corie James Reed; Three daughters, Ashley Pippins, Stephanie Reed, and Nickkie Hernandez; Four sons, Corie Reed Jr., Brandon Brown, Torry Reed, and Deion Reed; her pride and joy, the grandchildren, Corie Reed III, Jada Reed, Allyson Reed, Alayna Reed, Nevaeh,Aiden, and Adylyn Hernandez, and Elliana and Ethan Pippins; Brother, Samuel Bush; Sister, Winifred Solomon, and Niece, Destinee Bush; and her Mother in Love, Eleanor Ann Boyd.

Her lessons, love, light, and life will forever be missed and deeply cherished.
