Lizzie is survived by her mother Beth Pollhammer of Concord, NC, brother Chris Jones of Concord, NC, sister Tracie J Lewis of Troy, NC, niece Brancy Rollins & family of Concord NC, nephews Travis Phillips & family, Dillion Phillips & family, and Daniel Phillips.
Lizzie, as she was affectionately called, grew up in Harrisburg. She attended Cabarrus County Schools and graduated from Central Cabarrus High School.
Always an outdoor lover, she chose landscape and irrigation design as her career. It was hard work, but she loved it. She had a strict work ethic and took great pride in her work. She earned the respect of her clients and her coworkers. She was forced to resign after a serious accident rendered her disabled. She was a real trooper and was determined to walk again. She did, after fifteen surgeries.
From a very young age, she loved animals. She adored all of her pets and there were many over the years. She had cats, fish, birds, and dogs, dogs, dogs. Although she had a beautiful voice she did not like to perform. She entered one talent contest and won first place. That was enough affirmation for her. She was a music lover. Her taste was eclectic, but the classic women of jazz and blues were her favorites.
Lizzie had a big, loving heart. She loved her family and will be greatly missed by those who loved her. The family appreciates the love and support received from so many.
