Elizabeth (Liza, Bebe) was born in Portland, Oregon on June 25, 1929, the youngest of eight Misetich siblings. We lost our mother on Christmas Eve, as we lost our father, Peter Cartwright, on Christmas Eve forty-nine years ago. Despite suffering with dementia, she seemed to choose her time to leave this earth. She had been living at Mary’s Woods where she was looked after by a caring staff.Elizabeth lost her husband, Peter to ALS and lived for 27 years as a widow. In 1999 she married John Curtin. They lived in Neahkahnie, where they made wonderful friendships. After ten years she found herself widowed again and relied on her strong faith and a sense of humor to help her through another loss. She is survived by her children, Joan Cartwright Murray (Mark), Lynne Cartwright (Paul), Thomas Cartwright and Henry Cartwright. She adored her three grandchildren and two great grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister Marge Hill and several nieces and nephews.Donations can be made in her name to the ALS Association or The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation.

​Private family celebration is scheduled.
