Elsie Baranoff Lichtbach
Last surviving child of Alex and Rose Baranoff. Wife of Nathan Meyer Lichtbach.
She was borne in Cleveland Ohio. At the age of 17 she moved to Phoenix Arizona. Where she meets Nate who was in the Army Air Corp (U.S. Airforce) at a U.S.O. dance. They married three days after her 18th birthday and moved to Los Angeles, California and started their family in 1945. In 1948 they started their family business which ran for 70 years.
Her greatest joy was her family. She would go anywhere and did to be with and celebrate her siblings, children, nephews and niece’s life events. Her life was full of adventures. She traveled to every corner of this great nation and to Canada, Germany, Italy and Israel. In Israel she rode a camel and bathed in the red sea. She traveled by Jeep through the California Deserts and High Sierras. She was as comfortable in an opulent Manhattan or Las Vegas Hotel as she was camping with her children and grandchildren at Lake Tahoe and Yosemite National Forest.
She left us after 94 wonderful years. Her children Harry, Marsha, Eric, David and Sharon, Grandchildren Allen, John, Brandon, Chase and Lacey. And her three great grandson’s Bryce, Nathan and Parker.
Our mother had an iconic smile; it is most remembered by the many people whose lives she touched. Many of her children’s friends felt she was their second mother; her home was their safe place.
Elsie Lichtbach was loved by all and will not be forgotten.
