Obituary for Elizabeth Marie Caywood

Age 42 of White House passed away Saturday, June 5, 2021 at her home. She was born January 30, 1979 in Bellflower, CA to Michael & Marian Williams George. She married Ryan Caywood on December 3, 2000 and they had four beautiful children together, Rebecca, Allison, Zachary and Matthew. Elizabeth was working her way toward becoming a Registered Nurse just before they moved the kids to White House, TN in 2016, with dreams of a better future. She found a job in a hospital with hopes of that being her “foot in the door” for her nursing career. As 2017 began, she was struck with an awful, terminal disease called Idiopathic Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension. She made the tough decision to give up her dream of becoming an RN, due to the physical strain it would put on her. She wanted to spend every minute of time she could with her kids. She then found a wonderful job at Skyline Emergency Department as a Unit Secretary and she loved the “family” she worked with. In August 2019, as Elizabeth was looking at the end of her life, she got the gift of more time when she received a double lung transplant. It was an extremely difficult road for her to recover, but she did and she was able to have more time with her kids. Unfortunately, 16 months after her transplant, she developed chronic lung rejection that eventually led to her passing. Elizabeth loved to bake, quilt, work on DIY projects, craft things, and she had an adventurous side to her. Before her diagnosis she had been skydiving twice! But most of, she loved spending time with her kids.

She is preceded in death by her father, Michael George. She is survived by her loving husband of 21 years, Ryan Caywood; their children Rebecca, Allison, Zachary and Matthew, all of White floral squareHouse, TN; mother, Marian George, Carritos, CA; sister, Kim (Robbie) Caywood, Long Beach, CA; “Soul Sister”, Nicole Best, Tustin, CA; extended family and many friends. Graveside service is scheduled for Monday, June 14, 2021 in Hillcrest Cemetery at 11am.

There is no visitation planned. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions are encouraged to www.phassociation.org or to www.donatelifetn.org to honor Elizabeth.

Obituary for Wesley Andrew Kilgore

Wesley Andrew Kilgore (36), beloved father, son, and brother, passed away suddenly in a tragic car accident on June 2, 2021. Wesley (Wes) was born on August 14, 1984 to Alfred Allen and Judy Frances Kilgore (Jones) in Nashville, TN. He was a resident of Greenbrier, TN and was a Greenbrier High School 2003 graduate.

After high school, Wes earned a specialized Auto Body Repair & Design Degree from Tennessee Technological Center where he graduated in the top five percent of his class as well as a Commercial Art degree from Nossi College of Art. Wes was a gifted artist with a unique perspective. His talents extended across many forms of art including painting, sketching, graphic design, web and video as well as auto body detailing. He also wrote, recorded and performed his own music.

Wes went on to become a commissioned artist who showed his paintings at Nashville’s Downtown Art Crawl and whose clients included Graham Entertainment, Vestavia Hills High School and multiple independent music artists. Wes was a 2006 Oracle Award Winner and also served as the concept artist for the 15th Annual Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival. His designs appeared locally, regionally and nationally, across all brand collateral and promotion for the festival.

Wes felt that his greatest achievement; however, was his little girl Audrey who he loved more than anything else in this world. He will be remembered as a doting, nurturing and proud father and as a genuine and honest person who was fiercely protective of the people he cared about. He’ll be remembered for his tender heart, his love of animals, his awesome dance moves, his wit, his wicked sense of humor, his mischievous smile and his many loveable eccentricities.

Wes will also be remembered for his act of bravery in the final moments of his life, when he selflessly reached over and shielded his daughter from the impact of the collision that ultimately took his life.

Wes is survived by his daughter Audrey (Greenbrier, TN), mother Judy Kilgore (Greenbrier, TN), sister Natalie Kilgore (Nashville, TN) as well as his aunts, cousins and many true friends. He is preceded in death by his father, Alfred Kilgore (Greenbrier, TN).
