A gathering will take place to celebrate the life of Elizabeth Thrisillia Waldie Owen, 80, of Inverness, Calif., who passed peacefully on Oct. 10, 2014, with family by her side. Born July 12, 1934, in Albany, Calif., to John and Elizabeth Waldie, Elizabeth grew up in the Bay Area. She was a member of the first graduating class of the newly built Sir Francis Drake High School in 1952 and received a B.A. in English with honors from the University of California at Berkeley in 1956.
Elizabeth was an avid reader and music lover throughout her life. She enjoyed an active retirement of cooking, traveling and community service. She served on the board of directors for the Coastal Health Alliance, worked with political organizations, such as the Mainstreet Moms, and lent her skills to the local newspaper, The West Marin Citizen. A direct descendent of Juan Bautista de Anza, she was proud of her California ancestry.
Elizabeth is survived by her husband, Earle; her sister, Margaret; her children, John, Caitlin, Andrew, Maria and Emily; Earle’s children Kathryn and Derek; 10 grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.
She will be remembered for her compassion, activism and incisive intellect.
