Elizabeth (Connor) Bronstein, 83 of Scottsdale, Arizona and Mashpee, Massachusetts born April 6, 1930 in Manchester, England, passed away peacefully on May 2, 2013. Elizabeth, fondly known as Bette, was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother & sister. Before moving to the United States with her young family, Elizabeth was an accomplished artist and elementary school teacher in London, England. Multi-lingual, she was one of the youngest candidates also selected to teach at the British Embassy in Madrid, Spain. While raising three daughters, Elizabeth dedicated tireless years to community volunteer work. With a love for travel and adventure, she opened a successful travel agency where she enjoyed working with her many loyal commercial & leisure travel clients. Sadly her dreams of retiring between Cape Cod and Arizona were cut short by the debilitating effects of Parkinson's Disease. Elizabeth battled valiantly for many years before succumbing to the disease. She is survived by her husband David, of 59 years, as well as three daughters Jillian Weldon (husband Skip) of Medfield, Massachusetts, Karen Kallet (husband Bruce) of Phoenix, Arizona, Susan Klein of Scottsdale, Arizona and her sister Tessa Driskell of Los Angeles, California. She leaves behind seven grandchildren; Callie and Jamie Weldon of Medfield, Massachusetts, Scott (wife Jackie) with great granddaughter Emma Feller, Sarah and Jeff Klein and Branden and Kevin Kallet all from Arizona. Her kindness, optimism and sense of humor will be sorely missed by everyone fortunate enough to have known her. A private memorial service was held for the family. Personal condolences can be expressed through the Messinger guest book at: www. messingermortuary.com Contributions in Elizabeth's memory can be made to the Arizona Parkinson's Disease Consortium.
