Elizabeth A. Bradburn, 88


Elizabeth A. Bradburn, a lifelong resident of Cedarburg, entered into eternal life with our Lord on April 24, 2013, after a prolonged illness. She was born Sept. 12, 1924.

Elizabeth was preceded in death by her parents; her brothers, Charles T. Bradburn and James A. Bradburn; and her sister-in-law, Patricia G. Bradburn; plus her many friends and co-workers.

Left to mourn her passing are nieces, Mary Pat Burkel, Ellen (John) Frisch and Ann (John) Bradburn-Oates; and nephews, Charles L. (Patricia) Bradburn and Mark (Kim) Bradburn. She will be missed by her 11 great-nephews and great-nieces, John (Kristin) Frisch, David Frisch, Charles J. (Marian) Bradburn, Margaret Frisch, Mark J. Bradburn (fiancée Lindsay), Michael T. (Gretchen) Bradburn, Benjamin Burkel, Chris (Tracy) Bradburn, Andrew Bradburn, Katherine (Carl) Hoffhines and Daniel Oates; as well as the fourth generation of great-great-nieces and nephews, Kyle, Anna, Ella, Molly, Christopher and Lucia.

After graduating from Cedarburg High School, Elizabeth attended Rosary College and graduated from Marquette University. She spent her career as director of planning for the Boston Store where she focused her talents on store remodeling and department renovations.

Her family remembers with smiles the many wonderful holiday celebrations at her home. Elizabeth was especially fond of July 4 and Christmas. Some of the highlights of these celebrations included Russian fluff, homemade tomato juice, brats on the grill, fossilized chocolate Easter eggs, the personalized Christmas gift cards, and the penny and sock fairy.

Whether you knew her as sister, Beth, Aunt Beth, Elizabeth, Liz or Lizzy B, her personality endeared her to many.

The family wishes to thank the entire Lasata Care Center staff for their years of kindness and compassion extended to Elizabeth.

Visitation was held at St. Francis Borgia North Church, 1375 Covered Bridge Road, Cedarburg, on Monday, April 29, 2013, at 11 a.m. A funeral Mass was celebrated at noon. A private burial service was at Zur Ruhe Cemetery in Cedarburg.
