Elizabeth Anne “Libby” Woodard Spicer was born July 3, 1956 in Springfield, TN to William Winters Woodard and Betty Garrett Woodard. She passed away May 29, 2017 at her residence in Nashville, TN. Libby grew up on a farm in Springfield and graduated high school in Springfield. She also graduated from UT Knoxville with a degree in food science.

    Sincerest thoughts and prayers for all of the family. I know she was dear to so many – among them my daughter in law, Carol who treasured their friendship. I had the pleasure of meeting her on different occasions years ago. I pray for God’s Comforting love to surround each of you. Velma McBride

    Libby was a precious soul and loved everyone. I will never forget the memories from high school, band, 4-H and college. My deepest condolences to her husband, children and Mother and to all her other family. I’ll keep you all in thought and prayer.
