“I first started making rolls in homemakers class when I was in high school at Kossuth. Ruby Potts was our teacher,” said Elizabeth “Liz” Mathis DeBord, when several people complimented her on her rolls as a recent dinner gathering in her retirement community. She was born in the Corinth area and married Hoyt DeBord, of middle Tennessee. They were married for 19 years before his death 16 years ago. She worked at ITT for 35 years before retirement. Other than being known by her friends for her dinner rolls, she was also known for her garden. She raised memorably beautiful daylilies. DeBord has a daughter, Paulette, a grandson, and a great-grandchild who just turned two. DeBord said when she was in high school, she was known by family and friends as “Direene.” / Staff Photo by L.A. Story
