Death*17 Mar 2009 Elizabeth died on 17 Mar 2009 at Raleigh General Hosp, Beckley, Raleigh Co, WV, at age 87. Elizabeth Thrush, 87, of 109 Pine St., Beckley, died Tuesday, March 17, 2009, at the Raleigh General Hospital, following a short illness.

Born May 31, 1921, at Sprague, Mrs. Thrush was the daughter of the late William Withrow and Martha Stover Withrow.

Mrs. Thrush was preceded in death by a brother, William Withrow; a sister, Helen Campbell; brothers-in-law, Jennings “Mick” Campbell, Edward Thrush and Clarence Thrush; sisters-in-law, Kathleen Thrush, Lena Thrush and Betty Withrow; and a great-nephew, William Campbell.

Mrs. Thrush is survived by her daughter, Martha Thrush and son-in-law, John Diekman of New York City; a son, Edward Thrush of Beckley; a sister, Betty Brown of Boulder City, Nev; brother-in-law, Richard Brown of Boulder City, Nev; nieces, Ellen Brown of Henderson, Nev., Alyce Brown of Las Vegas, Nev., and Annie Brown of Des Moines, Iowa; nephews, Robert “Micky” Campbell of Bell, Fla., William Campbell of Orlando, Fla., and Andrew Withrow of Timberlake, N.C; and great-nephews, John Campbell and Thomas Campbell of Florida.

Mrs. Thrush was a 1939 graduate of Woodrow Wilson High School and attended Concord College. She was employed as a reporter from 1943 to 1948 by the then Beckley Post Herald. She subsequently worked at what is now the West Virginia State Health and Human Resources Department and the Beckley Appalachian Regional Hospital. From 1966 until her retirement in 1986, she was employed by Holiday Publications as an editor and reporter for the Fayette Tribune in Oak Hill, the Meadow River Post in Rainelle, and the Montgomery Herald in Montgomery. After her retirement from journalism, she went on to work at the Vietnam Era Veterans Outreach Center in Beckley where, in 1991, she was honored for outstanding service to veterans. During her career, Mrs. Thrush was active in the communities of Fayette and Western Greenbrier counties. She was a founding member of the Western Greenbrier Chamber of Commerce and served on the advisory committee for the Oak Hill Hospital.

Among Mrs. Thrush’s other civic interests were the establishment of Grandparent’s Day as a national holiday, the promotion of the New River Gorge Bridge Day and the publicizing of Westvaco’s West Virginia Woodlands Program in Rupert.

Mrs. Thrush was a member of the Beckley First Christian Church, where in years past, she sang in the adult choir.

Mrs. Thrush was also an avid gardener, West Virginia Public Television viewer, opera fan, reader and crossword puzzle devotee.

In keeping with Mrs. Thrush’s wishes, her body has been donated to the West Virginia University Human Gift Registry.

A memorial service will be held at a later date at the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine in Lewisburg.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Mrs. Thrush’s memory to the Raleigh County Public Library, 221 North Kanawha St., Beckley, WV 25801.
