Elizabeth Jeanne WaldersDecember 8, 2017
Elizabeth Jeanne Walders (Beth), of Brandon, returned to God at her home 1:40 PM on December 8, 2017 after a long courageous Battle with cancer. Born in upstate New York, at the Sampson A.F. Base, she has been a Tampa/Brandon resident since 1972. In her final days, she was closely attended to by those who loved her greatly.
Beth was cherished by many and will be missed by all. She had a wonderful sense of humor, enjoyed cooking, loved sports (particularly the Gators, Buccaneers, and the Lightning), and always made family and friends welcome in her home. She was a dedicated and loving mother, sister, and lifelong friend to many. She was proud of her work with Bank of America and Quest Diagnostics.
Beth was preceded in death by her parents: Geraldyne Boswell and Ronald Jennings of Romulus and Waterloo, New York, respectively. Survivors include brothers Mark (Tish) and Fred, sister Kathleen: her loving companion, life partner and soul mate Don Campbell, whose heart will forever be with hers; beloved children, son William (Liz); son Brian (Marsha); step-daughters Laurie, Theresa, Kelly (Tom), and Jeanne (Tony); niece Robin Lee (Art); nephews Skye, Forest and Hunter; grandchildren Brian, Breana, Bryah and Liam; stepgrandchildren Robert (Kayla), Josh (Ashley), Anthony, Alexandria, Alex, Rachel (Stephen), John (Julie) and Joey; great-stepgrandchildren "JJ", Madison and Maverick; Tina Campbell, and many other family members and friends, especially Jeanne Habes, Laurie Campbell and Ray Millaway.
Special thanks to the staff at Moffit Cancer Center, Tampa General Hospital, Cancer Care Alliance of Seattle and Life Path Hospice. We thank God for sharing Beth with us. We will always carry her memory in our hearts. No words can express how dearly and deeply she will be missed.
Services will be at 1:00 PM, January 6, 2018 followed by a celebration of life reception at Holloway Funeral Home, 112 South Bayview Blvd., Oldsmar, FL 34677. Flowers will be welcomed.
