Mary B. Lavender Obituary
Mary B. Lavender passed away October 5, 2017. Born in Vienna, Austria, she was the daughter of Ernest Kanitz and Gertrude Reif; the family was forced to flee after Hitler invaded their country in 1938. In the U.S., they settled in South Carolina; Mary and her widowed father moved on to LA in 1945. Mary married William D. Lavender in 1949; in 62 years together they teamed up to produce several historical novels, for which Mary did all the research. Mary was a volunteer on behalf of the Friends of the UCR Library and Riverside Public Library. She loved doing for her three children -- Debra, Larry and Randy -- and her grandchildren, Madeleine, Bridget and Spencer. Mary will be profoundly missed by all who knew her.
