Vail Daily obituary: Elizabeth “Lisa” McGraw Webster, 1926-2014

Elizabeth “Lisa” McGraw Webster, 88, died June 28 at her home in Sun Valley, Idaho.

Born in New York City to Elizabeth Murtland Woodwell and Curtis Whittlesey McGraw, Lisa was a longtime resident of Princeton, N.J. She attended Miss Fine’s School, Foxcroft and Finch College. In the summer of 2011, Lisa made a difficult emotional decision, due to being a “Princeton girl” at heart, to move her residence to Idaho, where she had maintained houses in the Sun Valley area for decades. She still was able to make a few trips to visit Princeton after that, but lived the rest of her years being able to see the beautiful mountains of Idaho and enjoy the summer skating programs.

Lisa’s great passions were figure skating and her beloved Cavalier King Charles spaniels. She was very active in the figure skating world and supported many promising skaters, some of whom became Olympic, national and international champions.

Lisa is survived by her daughters, Lisette Stoltzfus Edmond and Marian Stoltzfus Paen, and her son, Curtis McGraw Webster, their spouses, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held at Nassau Presbyterian Church in Princeton, N.J., on July 26 at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Hospice and Palliative Care of The Wood River Valley, PO Box 4320, Sun Valley, ID 83340 or SAVE, A Friend to Homeless Animals, 900 Herrontown Road, Princeton, NJ 08540.
