The moment in time has arrived and the Horton Funeral Home Family has been asked to announce to all that as of June 2,2020 Mother Elizabeth Whidbee Boone 92, of Elizabeth City, NC has permanently changed her address to 777 Highway 7, in that beautiful city called Heaven.

The Legacy Remembering events will commence on Friday evening June 5,2020 for moments of visitation and reflection from 6pm until 8pm at the Horton Funeral Home Chapel in Hertford, NC. On Saturday, June 6,2020 promptly at 2pm a Triumphant Homegoing Celebration will begin for Mother Boone at Horton’s Funeral Home Chapel. Following the Order of Divine worship in the Chapel, Mother Boone’s delicate vessel along with her adored family will be escorted to the Memory Gardens Cemetery for Interment Rites. 

There’s nothing like a “good mother.” The values that she has etched in the hearts of her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and other relatives will sustain them although she is now in the company of our Heavenly Father resting in everlasting peace beyond the sky.

The Compassionate Professionals of Horton’s Funeral Home and Cremations are serving the Boone and connected families with uncompromising dignity.

The services will be streamed live for the loving family and friends unable to attend DUE TO COVID-19. If you attend the service a mask will be required.
