Elizabeth was born in Kensing, Texas to Alvie Lester and Cleo (McKinney) Barber on June 11, 1940.  She was reared in northwest Fort Worth and attended school in Lake Worth.

On June 11, 1958 Elizabeth married the love of her life, James Henry Wilson, and in August 1970, moved to Paradise where she remained until the time of her passing.

A devout member of the First Baptist Church in Cottondale, Elizabeth was a homemaker who fawned over her grandchildren, took exceptional care of the family, and enjoyed cooking, Christian music, and taking Bible classes.  She had just taken her last test on Monday, November 23, to end the third semester of Faith Bible Institute.
