She married the late Clyde Russell Caughron, Sr. on August 18, 1950 and together they lovingly raised three children, Joyce Bellamy, Brenda South (Kevin), and Clyde Russell Jr. (Colleen), all of Bartlett. Elizabeth was preceded in death by her devoted husband of 47 years in 1997 and a sister, Margaret Vanlandingham Story. She married James Darrell Montgomery on July 17, 1999. For many years, she and Darrell traveled across the United States and abroad. They spent numerous weekends at Pickwick with family and friends, where many unforgettable memories were made around the table and while fishing. Darrell was faithfully by her side through her illness until her passing. She is survived by seven grandchildren; Brad Bellamy (Amy), Marcus Bellamy (Rubi), Tia South Blansett (Luke), Alexa South Windland (James), Taylor Caughron (Katelyn), Braden Caughron, and Chandler Caughron; 6 great-grandchildren; sister Connie Vanlandingham Eaton of Birmingham, AL, and three stepsons and their families.

Her greatest accomplishments were maintaining a loving Christian home for her family. She and Russell were charter members of Macon Road Church of Christ and later attended Sycamore View Church of Christ, where she remained a member until her death. She was an excellent seamstress, cook, and gracious host for numerous gatherings. She served many years in the organization Freed-Hardeman Associates.
