Elizabeth "Betsey" Whitehill died peacefully in her home on May 24, 2020 in Palo Alto, CA at the age of 93.
Betsey was born on May 19, 1927 in London, England to Joseph Loughran and Eliza Horsley. She graduated from UC Santa Barbara with a B.A. in Sociology in 1953. She married Kenneth Whitehill in 1958 and raised three sons, Steven, David, and Peter, in Palo Alto, CA. Betsey was a substitute teacher and childcare worker and showed love for all children, both her own and those in her care at work. She valued her faith and attended the Menlo Park Presbyterian Church. In her spare time, she enjoyed walking around the neighborhood, spending time with her family and discovering new hobbies such as coloring. Betsey was optimistic, generous, and loving, and she will be sorely missed.
Elizabeth Whitehill is survived by her son, David, and her three grandchildren, Victoria, Christine, and Matthew.
