In Memoriam

Elizabeth H. Gilbert

1928-2022

BAINBRIDGE—Elizabeth H. Gilbert passed away peacefully on October 22, 2022 in Georgetown, Texas. Betty Gilbert was the youngest of four children. Her father was a German immigrant and her mother an orphan. Betty was raised in rural upstate New York with little in the way of creature comforts. One of her childhood chores in the winter was to take the horse to a creek and break the ice, so that the horse could drink water. There was no indoor plumbing.

Her family moved to Bainbridge, New York in her teen years and there she thrived. She created the position of majorette and performed with the high school marching band. After graduating from high school, she took classes in stenography and other secretarial skills at a business school in Albany, New York, riding the train back to Bainbridge on weekends. Her first job was as a secretary for the research department of a chemical company in Bainbridge, working alongside her sister, Helen.
