Elizabeth Aldrich Horne
Elizabeth Aldrich Horne, Bonita, Mississippi, died October 3, 2010 in Meridian, Mississippi following a short illness. Mrs. Horne was preceded in death by her husband, the Rep. Tommy A. Horne, to whom she was married for 23 years. Beth is survived by her two sons, C. Warren Franklin (Ginny) of Lonoke, AR and W. Bruce Franklin (Donna) of Franklin, TN; her sister, Linda A. Harris of Germantown, TN and her brother, Lyman D. Aldrich III of Collierville, TN.
Born in New York City, New York on January 11th, 1935, Mrs. Horne was the daughter of the late Lyman D. Aldrich II and Elizabeth F. Aldrich. Her family spent some years in New York City before moving to Natchez, Mississippi. In 1952, she graduated from Natchez High School, after which she served as a legal secretary for the State Attorney General’s Office and the House of Representatives in Jackson, Mississippi.
Aside from enjoying time spent with her family, nothing brought more delight to Mrs. Horne than her beloved and devoted dogs, Redman, Silky, Sassy and Sweetie Pie. Mindful of her love and faithful care for them, in lieu of flowers, memorial gifts can be sent to CARA (Community Animal Rescue and Adoption, Inc), 960 N. Flag Chapel Rd., Jackson, MS, 39209.
A memorial service will be held at 11:00 AM on November 13th at the Natchez (MS) City Cemetery.
