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,

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.
