Elizabeth Udall was born in Stockton and grew up in Berkeley, California. She graduated from UC Berkeley, where she was elected Women’s Representative. In 1978, Elizabeth moved to her farm in Gold Hill, Oregon, with the encouragement of her childhood friend, Marjorie Kellogg. She quickly became a leader in the Rogue Valley: President of the Jackson County Library Board, President and Board member of Britt Music Festivals, a founding member of both Art in Bloom and Mediation Works, and a member of the Shakespeare Festival Board. In addition, she organized an Oregon Writers-in-Residence program on her farm in Gold Hill.
Before moving from the Bay Area to the Rogue Valley, Elizabeth was a teacher and active in social justice issues.
Elizabeth Udall is survived by her three children, six grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.
