Elizabeth Francis New, born on the 7th of December of 1929, went home to be with the Lord at the age of 93 on the third of March 2023. She was 93 years old.
Our mother was truly an Angel on Earth. Anyone who knew her well would agree with that. She loved attending services at Bannockburn Church in Austin, TX where she enjoyed volunteering and spending time with her fellow church members.
Elizabeth, or "Mama New" to her family, loved working in her yard. In her time spent she created a truly beautiful sanctuary for every bird who came to visit. Elizabeth enjoyed sewing and trying new recipes. She was a wonderful cook! (Lucky us!) After working for many years for Southwestern Bell Company, she retired. In her retirement, she most enjoyed spending time with her beloved family and especially taking care of her grandsons.
Elizabeth is preceded in death by her daughter, Roxanne Denise New Haskett. She is survived by sons Robin Dale New and Ronnie Wayne New and his wife Debbie all of Austin; grandsons Holden Christopher Haskett of Dallas and Corey Wayne New of Austin; and son-in-law Christopher Shannon Haskett of Austin.
We wish to thank Sodalis Senior Care for their warm hospitality and tendance they gave to our mother. We send a very special thank you to Robinson Creek Home Health and Hospice. We will be eternally grateful to our mother's nurses Emily Rotondo and Kimberly Hastings. They gave mother the utmost of care medically and spiritually; as well as giving our family a friendly smile and reassurances a family needs during the most difficult of times. They truly are very special people.
Mama New could always bring a smile or a comforting word in the worst of times. She had a prayer in her heart for everyone and a shoulder to lean on during times of sorrow. There were no bad people in Mama New's heart; only people who needed help. She was an undoubtedly strong yet gentle woman with a beautiful smile and infectious laugh we will never forget. She will be dearly missed and loved by all.
