Elizabeth Seabrooke Bredahl, 97

Westborough – Elizabeth Seabrooke Bredahl, 97, died peacefully at home of natural causes Thursday, Feb. 23, 2012.

Daughter of William Harvey and Carrie Brock Seabrooke, she was born on March 27, 1914, in Myrna, Nebraska. She was predeceased by her brothers: Robert, Joseph and Harvey Seabrooke. Her husband, A. Carl Bredahl, had also passed away in March of 1983.

She is survived by three children, A. Carl Bredahl Jr. of Maggie Valley, North Carolina; Karen B. Lane of Hunt Valley, Maryland; and June B. Hudnall, with whom she had most recently lived, of Westborough. She had eight grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

Mrs. Bredahl was known as an excellent secretary in Washington, D.C. in her early years, and later was a self-employed home interior decorator after attending the New York School of Design.

Much of her life was spent at her beloved “Woodside” in Moon Township, Pennsylvania, where she maintained a lovely home and gardens, and cared for both her mother and invalid husband. She was best known for her strength of character, intense loyalty to family and friends, and love of history.

Donations may be made in lieu of flowers to St Jude Children's Research Hospital or the Parkinson's disease Foundation. Burial will take place later in the spring in Virginia beside her husband.
