Elizabeth passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her loving family after an extended illness. Elizabeth was a quiet, gentle, kind and loyal wife, mother, sister and friend. She was the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Mahlon W. DeLoatch born in Tarboro, N.C. She is survived by her husband of 57 years, Larry Hines Worsley, her daughters, Elizabeth (Beth) Worsley Shore (Penn) and Virginia (Ginny) Worsley Mohrbutter (Trent), her brother Mahlon W. DeLoatch, Jr., and an extended family.
Elizabeth attended Tarboro High School and Converse College later working in the field of administration and bookkeeping; however, her greatest love and time was spent being a mother. She had a passion for helping others and quietly did kind gestures for others never expecting anything in return. She had a passion and love for animals, adopting and loving many pets through the years with her husband, Larry. Some of Elizabeth’s fondest memories were spent with her husband at N.C. State basketball games and with her family on the coast of North Carolina.
