Eliza Mae Arthurs

Eliza Mae Arthurs, 22, of Tulsa, Oklahoma, was born on January 2, 2001, in Pryor, Oklahoma; the daughter of Rev. Mike and Traci (Walden) Arthurs and Jennifer “JT” Rowe. Eliza went to sleep in Jesus surrounded by many people who loved her at Saint Francis Hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Thursday, April 20, 2023. Eliza loved her family dearly. Eliza had four sisters and a brother who she loved and cherished.  So many memories were made with her siblings in such a short life. She loved her son deeply and he is her legacy. Eliza made a decision in 2012 to follow Jesus and was baptized at Exciting Southeast Baptist Church in Pryor, Oklahoma. She then later attended Verdigris Assembly of God in Verdigris, Oklahoma. Eliza will be remembered as a person who enjoyed traveling and seeing new places. Who had a smile that could light up a room and a contagious laugh. Who was kind and caring.  Eliza leaves her loved ones with many long-lasting memories that we all will cherish for a lifetime.
