Elizabeth Ann Grant

Elizabeth Ann Grant of Dexter, Ore. went home to be with Jesus on Dec. 6, 2023, surrounded by her family after a short but courageous battle with pancreatic and liver cancer. 

She is survived by her husband Stephen Todd Jankowski; daughter Lily and son-in-law Christopher; two granddaughters ages 31/2 and 11/2 years old; stepson Jacob; parents Charles and Kaye Grant; and three older sisters, Sharon, Nancy, and Donna of Florida.

Originally from Maitland, Fla., Elizabeth attended Winter Park High School and later obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art from Columbus College of Art and Design in 1990. In 1999, she completed her gradua–te degree, a Master of Arts in Teaching from Pacific University. She was a tremendously talented artist, primarily focusing on painting and pottery. Her gift of art shone through in all areas of her life as she designed and created beautiful homes and cultivated an abundant garden.

Elizabeth was an accomplished gardener and a gifted beekeeper. Her favorite place to be was outside in the garden, with her hands in the soil and surrounded by her husband and immediate family, her dogs, cats, ducks, chickens, and bees. She served the community as a realtor for 22 years and a mobile notary for five, transitioning into retirement in the last year to spend more time with her family. 

Elizabeth cherished and was fiercely devoted to her immediate family more than anything else in the world and remained wholly devoted to them every moment of her life. In partnership with her beloved husband, she created a beautiful legacy.

Elizabeth will be missed dearly, remembered always and will live forever in our hearts.
