Elizabeth G. Ament


Elizabeth G. (Frey) Ament, 94, of Landisville, passed away peacefully at home, on Tuesday, January 15, 2019. “Betty” or “Doll”, as many friends and family called her, married Carl W. Ament, on March 6, 1948 and celebrated 50 years of marriage before he passed away in 1998. She was born in 1924, in Manor Township, daughter of the late Charles Hoover Frey and Anna Buckwalter (Hess) Frey. She went to Manor High School and later worked at RCA Corp and Charles Chips before becoming a fulltime homemaker. She loved her family, friends, and church very much. Betty was the second oldest member of Concordia Evangelical Lutheran Church having joined nearly 70 years ago. She helped at the church whenever possible, in much of that time, with various duties. Heartily, everyone she met through her lifetime, had nothing but love and kind words for her. Betty liked reading, cooking, gardening, doing crossword puzzles, watching Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune, WGAL 8 News, and loved chatting on the phone. She was an avid Phillies fan, watching nearly every game, even when they were lousy!

She is survived by one son, Gary L. Ament, Landisville. Two sisters: Arlene Fawber and Jean Krumrine. She was preceded in death by two sisters: Pauline and Miriam; three brothers: Robert, James, and Wayne.

Betty’s request was for all services to be private. Memorial contributions may be made in her memory to: Concordia Lutheran Church, 3825 Concordia Rd., Columbia, PA 17512. Arrangements by the Workman Funeral Homes, Inc., Mountville/Columbia. To send an online condolence, visit the condolence page.
