Elizabeth Fern Dennis

Elizabeth Fern Dennis, age 89, of Urbana, Ohio passed away Wednesday, May 13, 2020 at her home.

Elizabeth was born in Bakersville, Ohio March 25, 1931, to the late Francis and Edna (Shryock) Zeiner.  She was also preceded in death by a sister, Maxine Zeiner and her brother, John Zeiner.

Elizabeth married Carroll E. “Pete” Dennis April 19, 1968, in Kingscreek, Ohio and he survives in Urbana.  She is also survived by her son, Joseph B. Jacobs of Ohio; daughters, Lori (Joe) Seiler of Mt. Victory, Ohio and Denise Niswonger of Urbana; six grandchildren, Joey, Josh, Blake, Dani “Muffin”, Cody and Kelsey; two great-grandchildren, Skylar and Abrielle and a sister, Valorie Zeiner of Newcomerstown.

Elizabeth worked in the office at Kurz Kash in Newcomerstown for many years.  With her husband Pete, they were instrumental in establishing the Church of Christ in Urbana.  Elizabeth was active at church with the “Secret Sisters” group.  She loved to garden, crochet, sew, work crafts and play the organ.  The first tomato from the garden was always hers to enjoy.  Elizabeth cherished her collection of Dalmation toys from McDonalds.  She had a knack for finding bargains at yard sales – a trait she passed on through the family.  Elizabeth always put her family first.

Elizabeth’s funeral will be held Monday, May 18, 2020 at 1 p.m. at the Eichholtz Daring & Sanford Funeral Home in West Liberty led by family friend Michael Birt.  Visitation will be held two hours prior to the funeral.
