Born in Wilmington, DE on May 31, 1927, Elizabeth was the daughter of the late James A. and Emma (Johnston) Baker. She was a member of the William Penn High School Graduating Class of 1946.
Elizabeth was fondly known as “Aunt Libby” not only by family, but also by friends and neighbors. She loved traveling, collecting owls, crocheting and was proud to be a native Delawarean. Above all else, Elizabeth enjoyed and loved being with her family.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 50 years, Harold M. West, Sr., who was the love of her life and her “one and only”; sister, Louise Baker Brown; brother, James C. Baker; and great grandchildren, Evan Temler and Grayson Giammatteo. Elizabeth is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Harold M. West II and Jane Kelleher West and daughter, Aline West Stant (Dana). She was proud to be the grandmother of Carli West Brumfield (Tyson), Joy Stant (Stephen), Lauren Stant Temler (Keith), Dana Stant Giammatteo (Nick), and John D. Stant II (Michelle). Also very special to her were her great grandchildren, Colleen Collins, Corbin and Avery Brumfield, Lane and Reid Temler, Braden, Isabella, and Jack Giammatteo, and Elizabeth (Lily) Stant.
