Betty Lou Elzig (1931-2023) passed away peacefully on November 18th. She was a loving mother, amazing grandmother, caring sister, wonderful friend, avid churchgoer, and (she would say) a fair to midland bowler. She was like a roaring fire in a tiny little fireplace. Shined brightly, gave warmth, but wasn't afraid to burn someone. She was never afraid to give tough love when it was needed, but always had room for forgiveness.

Renton, WA

With a mix of sadness and joy, we announce the passing of Robert Merle O'Brien, affectionately known as Bob, on January 23, 2024, to join his savior, Jesus. Born in Eugene, Oregon, on February 10, 1933, to Orel James O'Brien and Mary Frances (Grazer), Bob's life was a remarkable journey filled with love, family, and a distinguished aerospace career. Bob's quest for knowledge led him to Oregon State College, graduating in 1956 with a degree in Electrical Engineering, showcasing academic brilliance and enduring passion. Commissioned as a 2nd Lt in the Army Corps of Engineers in 1954, he served honorably at Fort Belvoir, VA, and Fort Lewis, WA. In 1956, Bob joined Boeing, playing a pivotal role in the Apollo Space Program, contributing significantly to the historic moon landing and Lunar Rover design. Returning to Renton in 1970, he continued shaping the aerospace industry, focusing on controlling rockets and ordinance. Beyond his professional accomplishments, Bob and his cherished wife, Mary Ellen, were long-time members of Nativity Lutheran Church, where their faith flourished. In retirement, the couple embarked on travel adventures, exploring six continents and over 60 countries, nurturing their shared love for history and nature. Bob's zest for life was exemplified in his dedication to sports, finding joy in coaching his children and grandchildren. His wry sense of humor, showcased in his rendition of "Pindercella and the Cince," became a treasured legacy, bringing laughter to those fortunate enough to experience it. In the last decade, Bob found profound joy in the presence of his seven grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. He is survived by three of his four children, Pete & Suellen O'Brien, Chuck and Raejeanna O'Brien, Helen and Dirk Gusse. Bob's wife, Mary Ellen, and daughter, Susan, preceded him in death. Robert Merle O'Brien will be remembered not only as an accomplished aerospace engineer but also as a loving husband, dedicated father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and cherished community member. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations to Nativity Lutheran Church, Renton WA, in loving memory of Robert Merle O'Brien, as a fitting tribute to a life well-lived. May his legacy continue to shine brightly in the hearts of family and friends, and may he rest in eternal peace.
