Many years ago, we met Greg and he brought you to meet us in our Home in Horizon View. The surprise was you knew how to find our house as you had grown up in our corner of Bellevue. We enjoyed our visit and when you left we somehow never were able to contact the pair of you again. We are saddened by your passing and wish all the best for your family.

You will be loved and remembered always for being a role model as a person, woman, mother, friend, sister, daughter, wife and doctor. I will remember our last hug at the medical women's conference in Bellevue and will hold you in my heart always.

Greg, I was so sad to hear of Elizabeth's passing. She was a light to all of us that have had privilege of caring for her. She had a gift for making her visits at the clinic with me seem like we were old friends out for coffee. She spoke so highly of you and your wonderful children, she was so proud of each of them...I felt as though I had met them. You, Matisse and Chole are in my prayers. Grace

"Dr Mommie T" was a very special woman - open, accepting, unbiased, and kind to all lives she touched. She cared. She was someone we should all aspire to be like. She was amazing. And everyone who knew her loved her.

While we grieve our loss, let us appreciate the best part of her is still with us as she lives on in Matisse and Chloe to whom, along with their father my very dear other brother Gregory, I express my heartfelt sympathies. We must only go forward, and the road is long. But wherever the path from this loss leads us, know that I walk with you.

I will never forget Elizabeth. We called her Beth back at The Univ. of Puget Sound. I was in the class ahead of her, and when the new pledges came through during Fall 1981 Rush, we all wanted "Beth from Bellevue" to join the Theta house. Thankfully she chose us too, becoming a true Theta Lady. She was such a down-to-earth, sweet, genuine person. Everyone loved being around her. Our hearts and prayers go out to her loving family. May her memory be eternal.

I met Elizabeth several years ago when our sons, Matisse and Jake, played on a select basketball team together. She was a passionate fan and supporter of her son and I remember admiring the wonderful family unity they had and the joy watching Matisse play brought to her. Blessings to this family, always.

I was lucky to have met and worked with Elizabeth on a few occasions at the SCCA. I was always welcomed by her warmth. She spoke with joy of her family whenever we had time to visit during infusions. All my thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. I cannot quite grasp this loss...

My thoughts are with you and your family. I understand the overwhelming loss, I know how everything will be changed now. You were such an amazing person, so talented, so driven, so accomplished...and you made it all seem so effortless. I know your children will be fine, I know how you cared for them and helped them become the fine young adults that they are, and I also know how much you will be missed by them and by us forever.

I still find it hard to believe that you are no longer with us. I miss you so much. God rest your soul my sister. You were so tired of being a "patient" because being a doctor and helping people was what you lived for. Besides your family of course. See you again one day! I love you with my entire heart. xoxoxo
