Elizabeth Anne Roach “Liz” Stegall, of Wake Forest, died Friday, March 21, 2014, at Duke Hospice Pavilion in Durham after a courageous five-year battle with ovarian cancer.
A native of Martinsville, Va., Liz attended public schools in Henry County and Patrick Henry College. She was a 20-year-plus employee of the North Carolina Board of Funeral Service where she served as administrative services supervisor. Liz’s gleaming personality and love of family, friends and all four-legged creatures were exceeded only by her outward and inner beauty. She will be remembered and cherished by those fortunate enough to have shared her charm and wit.
Funeral services were conducted Monday, March 24, 2014, in the chapel of Bright Funeral Home with Chaplain Mark Vickers officiating. Burial was in Warrendale Cemetery in Norlina.
Liz is survived by her husband, Larry F. Stegall; daughters, Stephanie Anouilh of Pittsburgh, Penn., and Melanie Anouilh of Davenport, Fla.; son, Rodney Anouilh Jr. of New Orleans, La.; two step-sons, Larry Stegall Jr. and his wife, Amanda, of Bradenton, Fla., and Greg Stegall and his life-partner, Lee Hodges, of Myrtle Beach, S.C. She is also survived by her mother, Mary Jane Roach of Martinsville, Va.; her sister, Patsy Dickenson and husband, Jeff, of Martinsville; along with several nephews, a niece and a great-niece. It should be noted that Liz’s dog, “Roy,” shared a very special part of her life and is also a cherished family member. Liz was preceded in death by her father, Fred I. Roach.
