Martha Elizabeth "Libby" Higginbotham Love

Ms. Martha Elizabeth “Libby” Higginbotham Love, 66, of Edwards Street, Elberton, passed away on Wednesday July 3, 2024, at Piedmont Athens Regional Hospital. 

Born on September 8, 1957, in Elberton, Libby completed the family of Stanley Leon Higginbotham, Sr. and Martha Alma “Jackie” Jacks Higginbotham. She was a graduate of Elbert County High School. Libby began working as a monumental drafter at the age of 16, and was presently employed in that position at Century Granite Company. She was a very talented person and used her talents helping others design beautiful memorials – many often done freehandedly. Libby loved her family dearly, and always looked forward to getting together for holidays. 

Along with her parents, she is preceded in death by her son, Tory Janson Teasley. 

Surviving are her son, Cory Grimes of Elberton; siblings: S. Leon Higginbotham, Jr. and his wife Kathy of Littleton, CO, Gwen and Carroll Childs of Elberton, and Keith and Angela Higginbotham of Athens; grandson, Ason Grimes; and a host of other relatives and friends. 

At Libby’s request, no services will be held. Burial will be alongside her son and parents at Forest Hills Memorial Park.

Contributions may be made in her memory to T.J. & Friends Foundation, PO Box 6161, Elberton, GA 30635.
