Obituary of Elizabeth Frances Lashbrook

Elizabeth (Betty) Frances Brudereck Lashbrook passed away peacefully August 7, 2021, at her residence in Edmonds, Washington, following a brief illness. Her family and friends were with her when she passed. She was 93. Born October 10, 1927, in West Reading, Pennsylvania, she was the first child of Arthur Emil Brudereck and Helen Esther Brossman Brudereck. She graduated from Shillington High School and went on to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in Textiles from Drexel University. On May 14, 1955, she married Robert (Bob) Vern Lashbrook in Washington D.C. at the National Presbyterian Church. Bob and Betty moved from Virginia to California with their three young children in 1963. A longtime resident of Ojai, California, Betty moved to Edmonds, Washington, in 2011 to be close to family. She is survived by her children Art, Ken, Nancy, as well as 5 grandchildren, 2 step-grandchildren, 2 great grandchildren, and 1 step-great grandchild. Known to many of her friends as “Betty Boop” or “Madam Butterfly”, Betty was a caring friend, artist, singer, performer, avid bridge player, florist, swimmer, adventurer, storyteller, and self-proclaimed chatterbox; a silly, inspiring, supportive, one-of-a-kind, force of nature, and truly creative soul. Her spirit lives on in the hearts and memories of all who she touched. Rest in Peace, dear Girl, and know that you have been and are deeply loved. A private celebration of life is being planned for immediate family members.
