Elizabeth W. Dimitry, 82, beloved wife, mother and grandmother passed away peacefully on September 25, 2019 in Fort Worth.

Beth was born in Houston on April 18, 1937, an only child, to Robert “Bob” and Sara (Clifton) Warren.  Beth attended Sophie Newcomb College in New Orleans, where she was a member of Pi Beta Phi sorority and graduated with a degree in American Studies.

Beth and Tod were married in Houston on June 4, 1960.  They settled first in New Orleans and then Houston where they lived for 42 years before moving to Fort Worth.  Beth had a deep appreciation for music and poetry.  She could recite many poems from memory.  She loved and valued the life of all creatures, regularly rescuing wayward animals and even rushing a limping hamster to an all-night animal ER for what turned out to be a vitamin deficiency.

Beth is survived by her husband, Theodore “Tod” Dimitry; her daughter, Molly Hyry and husband, Michael; her son, Ted Dimitry and wife, Susan; her six grandchildren, William, Catherine, and Elizabeth Hyry and Max, Ben and Lauren Dimitry; as well as cousins, Maryanne (Lionel) Betancourt and Wendell “Jack” Cox; and many friends.
