August 18, 1945 - July 12, 2021
Elissa Amerson of Atlanta Ga passed away on Monday July 12, 2021 after a battle of cancer at the age of 75 years old. Elissa was born August 18, 1945 in Wilmington, NC. She graduated from Grady high School and attended Georgia State. She went on to start her own business, Quik-Tape Inc, where she later retired after 30+ years. She spent her early years living in Dunwoody, then eventually moved up to Lake Lanier to truly enjoy the rest of her days on the lake with all of her family and friends. Elissa was a devoted and loving wife and had 2 children. Elissa was best known for her humble, gentle spirit and her strong faith. She was our rock; she was an exceptional mother, grandmother, wife, aunt, and friend. She had a gift of sensing the needs of others and an ability to provide unconditional love, support, and encouragement. She was kind with her words and gracious with her time and loved nothing more than spending time with her family and friends being at the lake cooking out, boating, traveling, playing games, watching movies, eating out, shopping and talking. Family was everything to her, especially her precious grandchildren; Sarah, Brooke, Haley, and Kayla. Elissa is survived by her 2 children; Jeff Lafkowitz and Laurie Stanley, her husband, Bud Amerson, her step daughter, Martie Warren, her sister, Wendy Saul, and her grandchildren, Sarah and Brooke Stanley, Haley Warren, and Kayla Boshers, her nieces and nephews Jodi, Zoie, Talya, and Yared Wittenberg, and Cary Purcell. Elissa Amerson will always live on in our hearts forever. Funeral services will be held on Friday July 16, 2021 at 10:30am at Broadlawn Memorial Gardens 5979 New Bethany Road Buford, Ga 30518.... graveside service. There will be no visitation at Flanigan Funeral Home. Immediately following the funeral there will be a celebration of life back at the lakehouse at 6558 Lanier Island Parkway Buford, Ga 30518... 5 minutes away. Instead of flowers, I know Elissa would hope that you will do an unexpected and unsolicited act of kindness for someone in need in her name.
