Elizabeth Walsh Bone, 95, Los Angeles, Calif., died Jan. 5, 2014, at her
home with her family by her side.
She was born in Carmi on Oct. 27, 1918, to James and Mary Walsh.
Libby was a talented woman who could sew a suit that looked custom made,
because it was. She loved to read and she loved to have company right up to
the very end of her life. She was particularly fond of horses and going to
the races, where those who knew her always asked for advice regarding which
horse was going to win.
Her next favorite thing in life were her cats and she spoiled them beyond
belief. They were the daily companions that turned into children.
A celebration of life was held in January, where her many friends and family
gathered to talk about her wit, humor, openhearted personality and how much
she will be missed by all who knew her.
Elizabeth is survived by: her sister, Mary Walsh Routery of Kona, Hawaii; a
daughter, Faith Bone Cosby (Gerald Waite); two grandsons, Ron and Eric
Schlobohm; her much loved great-granddaughters, Isabella and Emmie
Schlobohm; her dear nephews, Michael and Gregory Routery, all of California.
"Aunt Libby" is also survived by her brothers' family, nieces Julie
Joy Holloway and nephews Jim Walsh and Rusty (Pat) Walsh.
She was preceded in death by: her husband, Earl W. Bone; her brother, James
Walsh; sister-in-law, Julia Walsh; and her parents.
A graveside memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Friday, May 30, 2014, at
Kuykendall Cemetery near Carmi.
