Obituary

Elizabeth Irene Elliott, 103, of Gonzales, formerly of Georgetown, passed away Monday, February 17, 2020. She was born January 15, 1917 in Cotton County, Oklahoma to William and Nellie (Olson) Bush. After the death of her mother and a few months later of her father in 1918, Irene was raised by her grandparents, John and Cassandra (Kaiser) Bush in Kress, Texas. After living several years with her father’s sister Clara May Callens and her husband John in Ridgley, Tennessee, she returned to her grandparents for high school where she met Rawleigh Elliott. Irene attended Amarillo Junior College and worked in Dallas until Rawleigh graduated from Texas A & M. They married in 1939 and moved to Midland, Texas, where their daughter was born. While Rawleigh served in the Pacific during WWII, Irene worked at Midland Army Airfield. After the war and the birth of their son, they sold their tractor dealership and moved to Georgetown, Texas, in 1950. Irene was active in various civic organizations: the March of Dimes, the public library, Woman’s Club, Garden Club and scouts. She fondly remembered her time as leader of Girl Scout Troop 11, made up of girls mainly from the Class of 1958 and her den of Cub Scouts. Irene was a member of the First United Methodist Church. Irene played bridge with a close group of friends for almost 50 years. Needlework and china painting were among her creative outlets. Irene and Rawleigh traveled to Hawaii with a group of Aggies and to Europe with his brother and his wife. They cruised Mexico, Canada, the Caribbean and the Mediterranean. For ten years, after Rawleigh’s death, Irene lived at The Wesleyan at Estrella where she made new friends and renewed old friendships as some Georgetown friends took up residence there. The last few years were spent at The Heights of Gonzales near her daughter. Irene was preceded in death by her husband Rawleigh Elliott and by her grandson Patrick Elliott. Irene is survived by her daughter Sandra and her husband William “Skip” Miller of Gonzales Texas, son William “Bill” Elliott and wife Gayle Uhruh of Jefferson, Missouri; granddaughters Susan Miller and husband Kevin Schields of Harwood, Texas, Stacey Miller and husband Brian Good of Bee Cave, Texas, and Lisa Cobb and her husband Jason of Austin, Texas. Her great-grandchildren are Nora Cobb, Byron Cobb and Jake Good. Irene and Rawleigh are to be inurned in Arlington National Cemetery. Arrangements are under the care and direction of Seydler-Hill Funeral Home, 906 St. Paul St., Gonzales, TX.

Our love and condolences to Irene's family. We have known them since they came to Georgetown and Irene was such a charming lady. Raleigh was such a gentleman. We have many wonderful memories of times together with our children when they lived on Main Street. Sandra, we think about you and when you used to take Randy to swimming lessons, early in the morning. He always had a runny nose!!! And Bill, your days with scouting and Danny, and of course Carl, golfing with Rawleigh. Sylvia enjoyed your wedding, Sandra. and all the kids loved spending Birthday parties together. We'll always have pleasant thoughts of our times with the Elliott family. We know Irene had a long, enjoyable life and is now reunited with Rawleigh and in the loving arms of Our Father. Blessings, Carl and Dolores Doering

I've known the Elliott family for many years having been a longtime neighbor of theirs in Georgetown. Sandra was a school mate of mine in high school and college. She was the first love of my life and like her mother was a wonderful person. Rawleigh and Irene were always cordial and considerate to me. The last time that I saw Irene was in Georgetown some ten plus years ago and she looked amazing. So her longevity in life is not surprising to me. I want to extend my sincerest condolences to Bill and Sandra for the loss of their mother.

Bill and Sandra, I was so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. But, what a long wonderful life she lived. What a legacy she left and what a blessing she was to all who knew her. She was always so sweet to me growing up. I will treasure those memories always. May the Lord hold you in the palm of His hand as you walk through this difficult journey.
