Obituary for Elisabeth "Jane" Haggerty

Elisabeth “Jane” Haggerty, born 20 September 1931 to Harry Lee and Elizabeth Frieze of Gaffney, South Carolina, is preceded into the arms of our Lord, Jesus Christ, by her parents, her husband Phillip Haggerty, her daughter Rebecca Crews, and son-in-law Andrew Montgomery. She is survived by her brother, Harry Lee “Jim” Frieze (wife Linda), her daughters Elisabeth Palmer (husband Scot) and Leila Montgomery, her son Phillip Haggerty, her grandchildren Whitney Hinton (husband Ryan) and Charles R. Crews, and great-grandchildren Cole and Crews Hinton.

Jane graduated University of North Carolina with a Bachelors of Arts in Language and from Vanderbilt University George Peabody College for Teachers with a Masters of Arts in Teaching. After teaching French for a time, she joined the National Security Agency on the Arab task force before meeting her husband, marrying in 1959.

Jane was a patriot, a passionate student of history and politics, a dedicated wife, mother, and friend, and deeply committed in her faith to our Lord Jesus Christ. Her perceptive wit, relentless love, and practical humor were a force for both direction and stability. We will miss her dearly.

Jane passed away on Oct. 23, 2017. Services will be held at 5:30 on Friday, November 3rd, 2017 at Christ United Methodist Church, 7535 Maynardville Pike, Knoxville, TN 37938. (Please do not send flowers or plants).
