I remember Elizabeth as a very friendly and happy lady and always so gracious to friends and relatives. I visited her a few times when Jerry and I lived on Bryant Street (we purchased Hilda and Ray Mraz's house when we got married and lived there for several years before moving to Wilsonville). I believe that my dad, Art Bitterman, built a garage for your dad and mom at the house they lived in.
Loosing a parent is sad and discomforting but a relief for the parent if they have suffered. I hope your mother did not have to suffer and is know that she is now in a better place. We lost our mom, (Lena Klein Bitterman), in 2009.
