Elisabeth Wilson, long-time resident of Los Altos passed away peacefully on November 11, 2013. Betty (as she was known to her friends) was born in Palo Alto, graduated from PALY High in the class of ’42, attended Mills College in Oakland, and was a member of the Menlo Park Presbyterian Church.
She raised her family in Los Altos and had a rewarding career in health care for the elderly, notably as the assistant administrator at Channing House, a retirement and continuing care center in Palo Alto where she was beloved by the residents. She is survived by her son, John Michael Wilson, daughter in-law Noemi Wilson, and three grandchildren Kimberly, Angelica, and Matthew, all of Los Altos and her dear friend Kilo Fonua of San Mateo.
A family service will be held at Alta Mesa Memorial Park in Palo Alto. Donations to UNICEFUSA.org are requested in lieu of flowers.
