At 106, longtime Rangers fan passes away
Elizabeth Sullivan, the longtime Rangers fan who captured our hearts, has passed away at the age of 106.
Family members say she fell asleep and passed away in New Mexico on November 1.
Sullivan was a longtime Rangers fan, who also had a passion for mathematics and Dr Pepper, which she drank three times a day.
"I've watched every game the Rangers have played in the last 15 years," she told WFAA at the age of 105 in 2016.
That was the year she got to throw out the first pitch at a Rangers game. A game where the Rangers faced off against the Seattle Mariners, and it just so happened to start at 1:05 p.m.
"I'm so thrilled I can't even think," she said prior to the big day.
Before baseball entered her life, Sullivan taught math. It was when she retired she found her love of the game.
"I've watched every game the Rangers have played in the last 15 years," she said.
And while the Rangers weren't on the mound on November 1, we just hope there was a Dr Pepper by her side.
