My knowing Elisabeth was from being an RTD FlexRide passenger for all the years she drove. She was highly dedicated to performing her job. We would only have brief chats and at times enjoy laughter. I learned nothing about her personal life as she was a private person. My fondest memory was December 2019 when I gave her a holiday gift of home baked goods packaged in a felt snowman shaped bag. She was utterly taken by the snowman bag. She asked me where I got it and I couldn't remember. Only that I had chosen it specifically for her because I thought she would like it. Oh my, did she ever like it. I had never before seen her react with such delight over something I gave her. Elisabeth, I have stayed at home since March 2020, only going out for medical or vet appointments. It saddens me greatly that I won’t see you again upon my returning to using RTD bus services whenever that will be. May you rest in peace in your new home. Julia Burton

As a child, Elisabeth grew up and attended Catholic school in Vietnam, where she spoke Vietnamese and French. Life was not always easy during those days. Then in the late 1960s, she immigrated to California with her mother. Elisabeth was very smart and quickly adapted to a new language and culture. Later she met her husband, David and they married and had 2 sons, Jonathan & Andrew. In 1983, their family moved to Colorado and they were immediately welcomed with a huge Colorado snow storm and blizzard! Through the years Elisabeth and her husband David enjoyed skiing with their sons in the Colorado mountains, taking road trips to California to see family, gardening, and enjoying the nearby mountain towns and casinos. Elisabeth was a hard worker and wanted to provide the best for her family. And we will always remember her love and care, continually shown by her generosity through gifts. She gave special presents, handmade knitted items, and throughout the 2020 pandemic, homemade masks and supplies. She cared for her family deeply and showed it through her actions. Other times she demonstrated her love through meals, typically delicious Vietnamese and Chinese foods. And we will never forget Elisabeths laughter and desire to joke around too, especially with her husband David. We will miss you Elisabeth, but we hope to see you again one day...in a beautiful place with no pain or suffering. Rest In Peace. We love you!

We are so sorry to hear about Elisabeth. Gary and I have fond memories of her cooking wonderful Chinese and Vietnamese food for us when we visited them. She was very conscientious in helping to provide for her family too. We pray God will comfort the family in her loss in mighty ways. Love, Bonnie and Gary
