Elizabeth Dawkins Lind, 72, of Sunbury, GA joined the angels in heaven on March 23, 2021 at Memorial Hospital. Mrs. Lind transitioned peacefully under the care of Hospice and in the loving arms of her devoted husband, John H. Lind with her daughter Honor Allison Lind by her side. Mrs. Lind passed away from liver cancer and a long battle with rheumatoid arthritis. The family had just learned of Mrs. Lind’s cancer two weeks ago and is deeply shocked and saddened at the loss of their beloved wife, mother, sister, friend and beautiful soul.
Mrs. Lind was known for her intellect, humor, beautiful gardens and love of art and literature. She graduated from Berry College in Rome, GA. Born in Alexandria, VA, she lived in North Carolina, Georgia and South Carolina. She was well known for her green thumb and beautiful English gardens. She was an avid reader and a walking book of knowledge, full of wit and charm. She spent a lot of her life rescuing animals and donating to the Audubon Society and the Humane Society.
Mrs. Lind and her husband enjoyed dancing and theater in their early days. She was often found humming and dancing in the kitchen while preparing her gourmet meals. Mrs. Lind’s early career was spent working with Charles Frazier, the key developer of Hilton Head Island, SC as the archivist and historian for Sea Pines Plantation. Later in her career she became the office manager with her dear friend Eileen Hudspeth at Coldwell Banker Realty in Richmond Hill, GA. While living at the Landings in Savannah, GA she was captain of the Tennis Team before retiring to the coast of Sunbury, GA on the intercoastal waterway where her assorted colors of azaleas, blush pink roses and wisteria will live on in her memory.
She is survived by her husband of 46 years, John H. Lind and daughter Honor A. Lind along with her sisters, Marty Cross, Judy Butler, and Kathy Shirley, and her brothers Sammy Dawkins and Billy Dawkins. To her daughter she left an inspired legacy of love for art and animals. She was preceded in death by her parents Charles Robert Dawkins and Janie Beavers Dawkins and her brother David Dawkins, who will be waiting at Heaven’s gate for her arrival. She was loved by many cousins in Virginia, Ohio, Georgia, South Carolina, and Alabama.
The sudden passing of Mrs. Lind has left a hole in the hearts of her family who will forever be grief-stricken at the sudden and tragic loss of the southern lady full of kindness, generosity, grace, style and charm.
In lieu of flowers please plant a blooming flowering plant in any shade of pink. Mother’s favorite was a blush pink rose. Blush pink is her favorite color. You can also give to your favorite charity in her memory.
Thank you all for your prayers, messages and condolences. We are humbled and grateful to the out-pouring of support to our family. We will all miss her so very much.
May the winds of heaven blow softly and whisper in your ear
How much we love and miss you and wish that you were here
You may be gone from my sight, but you are never gone from my heart
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal
Love leaves a memory no one can steal
Your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure
You are loved beyond words and missed beyond measure
I will hold you in my heart until I can hold you again in heaven.
May God bless her and keep her in Jesus’ name we pray amen.
Elizabeth meaning in her name “My God is an oath. My God is abundance.”
A celebration of life will be held on her birthday July 6, 2021. Arrangements will be announced on Facebook or contact Honor Allison Lind at email@example.com
For love of Elizabeth D. Lind
Forever In My Heart
Elizabeth will never be forgotten,
Although we are apart,
Your spirit lives within me,
Forever in my heart.
