Elizabeth, the daughter of the late Enos and Sarah (Stacy) Weakley, was born February 25, 1913 in Mt. Eire, Illinois.

Elizabeth went home to be with her Lord Sunday, October 28, 2007 in the Litchford Falls Healthcare and Rehab of Raleigh, NC at the age of 94 years.

On January 8, 1929, Elizabeth was united in marriage to James B. Kissinger in Kansas City, MO. They shared 57 years of marriage together and were blessed with two sons: Ed and Dave.

Elizabeth was a faithful member of both the First Baptist Church of Richland and Trinity Baptist Church of Raleigh, NC. In her spare time, she enjoyed working with her hands while doing craft projects. Her family and her church family were her life. Her motto was taken from Joshua 24:15 But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. She treasured the times that she could spend with her family and friends.

Elizabeth leaves to cherish her memory two sons: Ed Kissinger and his wife, Sharon of Jefferson City, MO and Dave Kissinger and his wife, Barbara of Raleigh, NC; 4 grandchildren: Beth Brown and her husband Norman of Eugene, MO, Debbie Walker and her husband Charles of Raleigh, NC, Jean Chambers and her husband Berry of Lancaster, PA and Tim Kissinger of Wake Forrest, NC; 7 great grandchildren: Matt, Zach, James, Doug, Carley, Joshua and Tracilyn; several other relatives and friends.

In addition to her parents, Elizabeth was preceded in death by her husband, James and one grandson, Steve Kissinger.

Funeral services were held Thursday, November 1, 2007 at the First Baptist Church in Richland, Missouri with Rev. Paul Swadley and Rev. Pryor Ray Prewett officiating. Marleen Brown played the piano as the congregation sang Victory In Jesus. Serving as escorts were Gary Brown, Art Bryant, Greg Dougan, Ken Miller, Terry Miller and Troy York. Burial followed in the Oaklawn Cemetery of Richland. Services were under the direction of Richland Memorial Chapel.
