Elizabeth Anne (Reese) Pflug

March 17, 1926 – September 7, 2019

Elizabeth Anne Pflug (Reese) was born to Walter and Ida (Loseke) Reese in Snyder, NE on March 17, 1926.

Elizabeth met her future husband, Fred Louis Pflug, while both were members of Trinity Lutheran Church in Lincoln. They were married on November 24, 1950 at Immanuel Lutheran church in Columbus, Nebraska.  She was preceded in death by her husband, Fred, a daughter Rebecca (stillborn), and her brothers, Frederick and Robert Reese. She is survived by her sister, Mary Brown; children and spouses: Anne and Irv Dana, Tom and Dorothy Pflug, John and Nancy Pflug, Jim and Yvonne Pflug; grandchildren: Andy and Amanda Dana, Lauren and Branden Fleharty, William and Anna Pflug, Elizabeth and Matt McDonald, Rebecca and Jack Christie, Kathryn Pflug, Mariel Pflug and Joe Lord, Madison Pflug, Jackson Pflug, Carter Pflug, Jake and Janey Pflug, Jessie and Kevin Hohlen, Drew Pflug, and great grandchildren: Harrison and Reese Dana, Georgia Fleharty, Ethan and Elena Pflug, and Aurora Pflug.

Elizabeth’s Christian faith sustained her, and she lovingly encouraged her family to keep Jesus at the center of their lives.  She spent her professional career as a much beloved medical secretary at the VA in Lincoln, Ne and administrative assistant at Internorth in Omaha, Ne.  Elizabeth volunteered regularly for District 66 and St. Mark and Beautiful Savior Lutheran Churches.   She will lovingly be remembered for many things but especially for cooking her family delicious meals every Sunday evening up until the week of her death.   She was a friend to everyone she met and was admired for her servant heart and her cooperative, helpful, and pleasant attitude.  Elizabeth will be sorely missed.  Nevertheless, we rejoice in the certain knowledge that she is now at home in heaven with the One who loves her most, Jesus Christ.

There will be a memorial service celebrating God’s gift to Elizabeth of Eternal Life on Saturday, September 21, at 9:30 a.m. at Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church in La Vista, Ne. Memorials are suggested to:  Mission Central or Lutheran Hour Ministries.

“Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.”  Psalm 103:1

    Elizabeth always had a smile on her face and concern about others. So glad I got to see her this summer.

    Our family would like to express our condolences. I have really nice memories of hanging out in the Pflug’s kitchen before we rode to high school together. Mr. & Mrs. Pflug and the kids always made me feel welcome.

    To the Plug family… I have many rememberances of the Pflug family when the boys played together in the 1968 through the 1970’s. Whenever Liz and I would run into each other we always had long conversations about family. Wonderful memories of Liz’s love, kindness & caring for everyone. She always had Jesus in her. My deepest Sympathy ….
