Elizabeth Onita Jones was born April 18, 1927, in Climax, Ga. the daughter of John and Mary Yawn Jones. She married Felton R. Logue and was affectionately known as Lizzie Logue. Miss Lizzie was a lifelong resident of the Climax Community and was a member of Pisgah Primitive Baptist Church.

Miss Lizzie was the original American Picker and offered her antiques for many years in downtown Climax at the Curiosity House. She was known to the locals as a wheeler-dealer. When she wasn’t dumpster diving or refinishing furniture she could be found tending her flower garden, where one could say, “if it blooms or grows in South Georgia Lizzie has one in her yard.” Lizzie was born with an adventuresome spirit and never let the dust settle under her feet.

Survivors include her children Randy Gainous and his wife, Ann, of Ocoee, Fla., Terry Logue and Debra of Climax, Linda Kelly of Tallahassee, Fla., Brenda Bishop of Waynesville, N.C., and Gina Harrell and her husband, Frank, of Whigham, Ga.; her siblings John Jones, Jr. and his wife Margaret of Winter Garden, Fla., Joe Jones of Inverness, Fla., and Lucindy Brown and her husband Raymond of Whigham; her eleven grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

Elizabeth was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Felton R. “Pet” Logue; her son, Mickey Gainous; and her brothers, Abraham Jones and Alton Jones.
