She watched The Gaithers everyday for decades .  She was a powerful prayer warrior, praying for everyone who had a need.  Elizabeth enjoyed hosting Sunday dinners for family, baking and always caring for others, doing it all with love.  With a fantastic sense of humor and a razor sharp wit she brought laughter to all who loved her.  She made the world a brighter place with her own form of "sunshine."  Elizabeth will be remembered with love and laughter.  She is survived by her son, Warren Simons, Jr. of Alloway and her foster son, Robert Cheesman of Alloway; her daughters, Patricia Lohmeyer (Charles) of High Point, NC and Etta Phillips (Tim) of Alloway; daughter in law Margaret Simons stepbrother, Michael Dillon of DE and Richard Dillon of DE; 16 grandchildren, 36 great grandchildren and 5 great, great grandchildren.  Elizabeth is predeceased by her husband, Warren R.
