Elizabeth "Lib" Calliham Obituary

Elizabeth (Lib) Buffington Calliham was called to Heaven at the age of ninety-two.She was the daughter of the late Luther and Estelle Buffington and grew up in Edgefield, South Carolina. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her sister, Edna Harley, as well as her son-in-law Dick Timmerman.

After being a stay-at-home mom to her two children, she worked as a teller at Security Bank in Edgefield and later as a clerk at Fort Gordon in Augusta, Georgia. Lib spent the last twenty years of her life in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina near her children.

She was passionate about her faith, family, flowers, and was an avid reader. She thought food was one of life’s greatest pleasures and took pride in cooking delicious birthday dinners for her children and their spouses for years. She also had a knack for finding restaurants that became favorites. One of her local favorites was Magnolia’s. Her son, Bob, shared a meal he brought her from there in December which delighted her. It was not uncommon for her to be planning the next meal before leaving the table from the current one.

Left to cherish those memories are her daughter, Sharon Timmerman of Jacksonville, Florida, and her son, Bob (Flo) Calliham of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. She leaves two grandsons whom she adored;Chris Timmerman( Dyan) of Jacksonville, Florida and Justin Calliham (Sheena) of Denver, Colorado. She was so proud of being a great-grandmother to her four great-children who remember her fondly Hannah and Heather Timmerman and Reagan and Beau Calliham.

A private family memorial service will be held in Edgefield at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorials be made in her honor to Low Country Food Bank, 4716 Northgate Blvd., Myrtle Beach, SC 29577.
