Elizabeth Cramer

May 17, 1968 — November 23, 2023


Elizabeth Cramer, a loving daughter, sister, mother, and grandmother, born on May 17, 1968, in Gatesville, was a remarkable individual who left an indelible mark on the lives of those fortunate enough to have known her. As we mourn her passing on November 23, 2023, in Temple, it is important to celebrate the life she lived and the profound impact she had on her family and friends.

Throughout her illustrious career, Elizabeth embarked on various professional endeavors. From managing nursing homes to restaurants and other establishments.  Elizabeth's passion for giving others a sense of comfort and joy was evident in everything she did.

Beyond her professional achievements, Elizabeth will be remembered for the moments that truly made life special. One cherished memory shared by those close to her were the phone calls she would generously make. Be it a simple check-in or words of encouragement during difficult times, Elizabeth's phone calls were invaluable and brought great comfort to many.

Elizabeth embodied a loving and caring nature that radiated from within. Above all else, she treasured her family. The love she had for each member of her family knew no bounds and was unwavering. Her children and grandchildren were among her proudest accomplishments, as they represented the legacy she had built throughout her life.

In addition to her parents, Billy and Lina Shelton, Elizabeth leaves behind a loving and devoted family. Her son, Anthony Shelton, her daughters, Michelle Shelton and Jasmine Cramer, her brother, Fernando Jose Zapata, her sisters, Corina Maya, Lucia Zapata, Rachel Ridgeway, all of Belton, Theresa Castillo of Moody, Donna Sue Shelton of Houston will carry her memory with them forever. She also leaves behind thirteen grandchildren and one great granddaughter that she was able to meet weeks before her passing. They will all forever be blessed by the love they shared with their beloved matriarch.

Outside of her professional and family responsibilities, Elizabeth found joy in pursuing her passions. Crafts and jewel art paintings were among her favorite hobbies. Through these artistic endeavors, she left behind tangible reminders of her artistic soul and left many to her family and friends.

Elizabeth Cramer's departure has left a void in our lives that can never be filled. However, as we reflect on the beautiful life she lived, let us be grateful for the cherished memories we hold dear. Her unwavering love for her family, and kind-hearted nature will forever serve as an inspiration to us all.

Her family would like to give recognition to the Baylor Scott and White staff for the amazing care they gave to them and their mother.
