Obituary of Elizabeth Olive Rodriguez

Elizabeth "Beth" Olive Rodriguez, 84, passed away on December 28, 2022 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. 

She was born on April 5, 1938 in Yerington, Nevada to Edward Leslie and Rose Olive (Donaldson) Scott.

Beth earned a GED, and a cooking school certificate. She worked in the Restaurant industry, as a Receptionist and Mailroom Supervisor. She was mostly known as a wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She will always be remembered as the sweet lady who gave smiles, hugs, handmade knitted hats, and love everywhere she went. She loved her Lord Jesus and reflected His love to everyone she met.

She was preceded in death by her first husband, Thomas Edward Ellis; her second husband, Michael Anthony Rodriguez; her daughter, Pamela Louise Ellis; and her parents, Edward Leslie and Rose Olive Scott.
