Surrounded by her family, Elisabeth Muir, age 84, passed away on Friday, May 2, 2014, at Kindred North of Kenosha, following six years of health challenges.  She was born in Tolkemit, Germany, on April 1, 1930, daughter of the late Hermann and Anna (Nee: Fischer) Bendrin.

On March 31, 1955, in Orkney, Scotland, she was united in marriage to James W. Muir. Together they moved to Racine in 1960.  Elisabeth will be remembered for working at DeRose’s Bar for many years.  She was a member of First Presbyterian Church. She was an exceptional cook and baker who also enjoyed knitting, crocheting and sewing. Above all, it was time spent with her family she treasured the most.  She will be dearly missed.
