Following her graduation from Lassiter, Elizabeth attended Berry College in Mount Berry, Georgia where she majored in early childhood education. Throughout her time at Berry, her love for music never faded as she was a member of the Berry band for many semesters. Born with the biggest of hearts and gentlest of souls, Elizabeth was naturally drawn to special education. Following her graduation from Berry, Elizabeth began her teaching career in the pre-k special education program at Findley Oaks Elementary School in Johns Creek, Georgia. During her first two years at Findley Oaks she simultaneously earned her Masters Degree in Special Education because of her deep passion for her students and her desire to prepare them for a positive and meaningful life. She ultimately earned her own special education classroom at Findley Oaks where she was adored by all of her students and colleagues. In her relatively short career, Elizabeth touched dozens of disadvantaged children's lives for the better, the positive impacts of which these children and the world will see for years and years to come. Although Elizabeth was burdened with diabetes, she stood strong and never let it take away from her positivity, her commitment to her students, and her love for her friends and family. Thank you Elizabeth for your beautiful soul and beautiful life. We will all miss you deeply. Elizabeth is survived by her father, Bill Huelster; mother, Angie Huelster; brother, Nick Huelster; sister-in-law, Gabi Nunez-Huelster; grandfather, Billy Gray; grandmother, Lana Gray; and many other loving family members and dear friends.
