Lloyd and Isabella Lider were married on April 9, 1946 in Stein, Germany at nearby Faber Castle. Isabella had been at Auschwitz and after her release, she worked for three years sewing German uniforms. During a visit to her father, who was serving as an interpreter at the Nuremberg trials in 1945, she met Lt. Lloyd Lider, a U.S. infantry officer helping guard high Nazis on trial.

They have lived in Medford at the Rogue Valley Manor for 15 years and previously resided in Davis, Calif., where Lloyd was a professor. After retiring from the university in 1964, Lloyd did vineyard management, consulting for the International Service Corps. He and Isabella traveled the world, visiting countries from Chile to Egypt to New Zealand.

They have two children, Alice (deceased) and Edward (wife, Joyce) of Coeur d' Alene, Idaho; three grandchildren, Julie, Steve and Matt; and four great-grandchildren, Lauren, Emily, Jason and Riley.

A celebration and dinner reception was given by Edward and Joyce Lider at 4 p.m. April 9, 2016 at the Rogue Valley Manor, at which about 40 people attended.
