Chattanoogan: Elizabeth Trimble Gets Surprise 90th Birthday Party

Thursday, September 21, 2017

Union Hill Youth Ministry had a surprise 90th birthday celebration for Elizabeth Knowles Trimble who was born Aug. 31,1927.

She has seven children, 19 grandchildren, and 29 great-grandchildren. She is called “Grannie” not only by her grandchildren, but by many of the adults who were raised in the Union Hill Missionary Baptist Church as well as those in the South Chattanooga area where she lived for many years.

She has been a tremendous influence in the lives of people who are now doctors, lawyers, ministers, police officers, teachers, administrators, and laborers. Ms. Trimble has been actively involved in youth ministry for more than 60 years. She has not only ministered to young people within the church but also in the community.

She has served as president of the Parent Teacher’s Association for several years at Chattanooga Avenue Elementary School, Howard Elementary School, and Howard Junior High School. While her children were of school age, she served as a homeroom mother and as a leader of the Girl Scouts, and she worked with the Boy Scouts of America where she was a Den Mother.

She has worked with the Red Circle, the Sunshine Band, and various other Youth Ministries within the church, including supervisor of the Youth Choir and the Youth Usher Board. She has worked in the Vacation Bible School where she has supervised the Arts and Crafts program for several years and continues to do so.  

Officials said, "We are so blessed to have Mrs. Trimble still working with us."
