Ms. Elizabeth Zow
The Life of Elizabeth
Elizabeth Zow, born April 27, 1939 in Deland, Florida, to the late Sam and Vastoria Zow. She was saved under the
pastorialship of Elder Lewis Hart. Elizabeth, fondly known as “Liz”,lived an extraordinary life of dedicated service to the
body of Christ. Moreover, she accumulated a multitude of friendships and acquaintances which spanned the United
States and abroad. Anyone who met Liz quickly was engulfed by her kindness, thoughtfulness and love. Liz gave so much
love and made so many sacrifices for so many. She was indeed a woman of excellence---so sweet, so dear and so
unselfish. Before the internet, social media or mobile phones were ever conceived, Liz had created a network of friends
far and wide who were interconnected by daily affectionate words of “I love you”.
Liz enjoyed a wonderful life as a daughter, mother and grandmother. As a daughter, she was a faithful dedicated
caretaker for over 50 years for her father and mother until their homegoings. The bond between Liz and her beloved
mother, Vastoria became an admired model and example within the Deland community of how to obey Ephesians 6:2
“honor thy father and mother which is the first commandment with promise”.
As a mother, she deeply loved, trained and encouraged her son and daughter in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
She remained a steadfast, supportive and phenomenal mother worthy of every high honor and praise. As a grandmother,
she adored her grandchildren and showered them with her gentle kindness and unconditional love.
Liz’s illustrious career included banking, higher education and government. During her retirement, she was a faithful
member of Temple of God church. Liz was also a dedicated member and officer of Euclid High School Class of 1957.
Throughout her life Liz was often admired and complimented for her flawless and regal beauty. Even at 80 years old, she
defied traditional aging and displayed her personal high standard of class, elegance and integrity. However, her outward
beauty was unmatched by her inner beauty which began when Sam and Vastoria Zow instilled the love of Christ in her as
