Elizabeth Orth funeral fund

Elizabeth Ann Orth, as many know by Libby, has earned her wings in heaven. She became an angel on Tuesday April 5, 2016 at 4:30pm when she took her last breath. We all know that she is in a better place and no longer suffering. 
Libby has fought her way through a variety of health issues and always stayed optimistic. She's the strongest woman we've ever known.  She never wanted to greet anyone with just a simple "Hi". She always hugged you when she saw you. 
With Libby's passing being unexpected, the family has unfortunately been left with the financial burden of burying their mother and dear wife.  Libby was unable to acquire any life insurance for quite some time due to her pre-existing conditions. 
The family is expecting a total bill from Kerr Brothers Funeral Home for around $12,000, and currently have nothing saved for such an occurrence. 
All money raised will be used to pay for the expenses of burying sweet Libby. 
She will be missed by many. 

"When I am gone, release me, let me go. 
I have so many things to see and do,
you musn' tie yourself to me with too many tears,
but be thankful we had so many good years. 
I gave you my love, and you can only guess
how much you've given me in happiness. 
I thank you for the love that you have shown, 
but now it's time I traveled alone. 
So grieve for me a while, if grieve you must
then let your grief be comforted by trust
That it is only for a while that we must part,
so treasure the memories within your heart.
I won't be far away for life goes on. 
And if you need me, call and I will come. 
Though you can't see or touch me, I will be near 
and if you listen with your heart, you will hear
all my love around you soft and clear
and then, when you come this way alone,
I'll greet you with a smile and a "Welcome Home"

We greatly appreciate every penny donated.
