Obituary of Elberta Mae Lightfoot

In loving memory of Elberta (Bertie) Lightfoot, born July 13, 1943 in Chloride, Arizona. She was

75 years old and the mother of Larry (Suzie) and Lori (Glen). She was a grandmother to Clay,

Annie, Jake, Sam and Fred. She passed away peacefully in the morning on February 20, 2019

in Sedona, Arizona. The daughter of William Elmer Shelley and Edna Elberta Shull, she was the

second youngest child of eleven children. She moved to Camp Verde with her husband, Alvin

Lightfoot in 1972 and lived a very productive life. She thoroughly enjoyed being a member of

the Yavapai Cowbelles, travelling to all the rodeos and was very active in raising Cowbelle

Scholarship monies through various activities. She was an outstanding seamstress and

supported herself through some very difficult times. She was also a realtor for many years in

Camp Verde. She loved meeting people and making new friends.

She loved her family; her children were her pride and joy. She loved her many nieces and

nephews, and was loved by them in return. She will be sadly missed.

 

Bertie will be interred in the Chloride Cemetery Saturday, March 9, 2019 @ 1pm.
