ABOOD, ELIZABETH  
  ELIZABETH ABOOD (Age 97)   On June 15, 2016. Daughter of Sam and Mamie Rashid of Fort Madison, Iowa. Sister to Oscar and Baddia. As a young adult she sought to extend her education. She waved goodbye to Iowa and headed to Washington, DC. She quickly landed jobs at the U.S. Treasury Department. Later, career changes took her to the DoD, Department of Justice and the NIH. About this time she met a young man from Massachusetts - John Abood. Elizabeth and John married in 1953 and they purchased a home in Bethesda, Maryland. Their children and family were the focus of their life together. Elizabeth enjoyed her life.
