Edith Inez Elliott, 99, went to be at peace with her Lord on May 8, 2016. She was a native of Granville County and the daughter of the late William Henry and Sarah Denny Elliott. Inez was a farmer and part-time retail sales person in Durham and Oxford. She was a longtime and dedicated member of Sharon Baptist Church where she was one of the original Women on Mission members. Her goal as her immediate family aged was to live long enough to assure that they were all cared for as the need arose, which she accomplished admirably. Inez will always be remembered as one who was frugal, direct spoken, always generous to others, and truly devoted to God, family, and community.
