Her early life was like a novel: born in 1921 in Cincinnati to German parents, at the age of nine, after her father's untimely death, her mother returned with her to the German section of Romania. Here she studied music and art in a convent school. She met her first husband in Romania, but lost him to WWII. With her two young daughters, she returned to Cincinnati in 1947, where she hosted a radio show and worked for a German-language newspaper. Marrying again, to Walter Roessler, the family moved to California in 1951. Lisbeth was an accomplished singer, so her life was filled with music. She was the choirmaster for many years for her church, St. Callistus, she taught piano to several generations of young students, she was the official carillon player for the City of San Pablo, and she was a long-time member of the SF Opera Guild. She is survived by her three daughters, Helga Wilson of Martinez, Linda Blum of Sonoma, and Barbara Roessler of Oakland, two grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, and three great- great-grandchildren Lisbeth was a forceful presence in all our lives, and she will be missed by all who knew her.

Ross, Dorothy Whittemore  
Dorothy Whittemore Ross 1924 ~ 2016 Resident of Walnut Creek, Ca Dorothy Whittemore Ross, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, library assistant, arts patron and resident of Walnut Creek for 64 years, died June 9, 2016 after a brief illness. She was 91. Our mother is remembered for her devotion to family, her love of music and reading, her laugh and her sense of humor. She was enjoying life up to the very end. On her final weekend, she finished a novel for her book club, took in the new Jane Austen movie and listened to a favorite Schumann piece at a chamber concert. The morning before she went to the hospital, she voted in the June 7 presidential primary. She was born in 1924 in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the fourth of six surviving children of Helen Case Whittemore and Harlow Olin Whittemore, a professor of landscape architecture at the University of Michigan. She graduated from Ann Arbor High School in 1942 and attended her hometown college. Then, in an adventurous move for a young woman of her era, she headed west to attend the University of Washington in Seattle and then UC-Berkeley. At Cal, she met our father, William H. Ross, a U.S. Navy reserve officer and veteran of World War II battles in the Pacific. They married in 1948 and settled in Contra Costa County, where our father launched his education career in the Acalanes Union High School District, starting as a teacher at Acalanes High School, serving as principal of Del Valle High School and eventually as superintendent for the district. In 1952, our parents settled into their house in Walnut Creek, where they raised four children. Our mother sewed our clothes, and our parents shared their love of the outdoors and of travel, with summer camping vacations to the Sierras, the Western states and Canada and many road trips across the United States. Our mother also was active in the League of Women Voters of the Diablo Valley, serving as president for one year, and worked as a library assistant for the Contra Costa County Library system. After our father retired, our parents traveled widely, including to Europe and Southeast Asia, and devoted many hours to attending grandchildren's soccer games, piano recitals and school events. They also socialized with retired Del Valle and Acalanes high school teachers, were active in the Contra Costa Council of the Navy League and attended concerts by the California Symphony and Sierra Chamber Society. After our father's death in 2003, our mother dedicated herself to nurturing the garden he so lovingly tended and continued to enjoy an active social life with her family and friends. She is survived by: her children, Victoria Clausen, Leslie Vilhauer, William Ross and Martha Ross; their spouses, Ernest Clausen, Gary Vilhauer, Lorraine Ross and John Sterns; grandchildren, Beth Clausen Jones, Alex Clausen, Heather Vilhauer, Lisa Vilhauer, Max Ross, Henry Ross, Charles Ross and Ian Sterns; grandchildren's spouses, Tyler Jones, Scott Tal, Conor Healy and Bianca Marcias; and great-granchildren, Natalie Jones, Laura Jones and Michael Healy. She is also beloved by her siblings, Hal Whittemore, Jean Sharp and Bruce Whittemore, and her late sisters Margaret Kelleher and Ruth Sansome. A celebration of life will take place 11 a.m. Thursday, June 30 at Oakmont Mortuary, 2099 Reliez Valley Road, Lafayette. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the California Symphony or the Sierra Chamber Society. View the online memorial for Dorothy Whittemore Ross

She so enjoyed babysitting and cooking for her two Grandchildren, Frankie and Kaitlynn, and always enjoyed having all of her Grandchildren and Great-Grandchildren around her. One of her favorite pastimes was going for a ride with her beloved son Elmer. They would go for rides along the coast, stopping to eat, drink, walk and talk about her past and childhood stories. She and Elmer always said that their hearts were connected. She always knew how to comfort him when he was tired or stressed, and he always knew how to comfort her as well.
