I am searching for someone who may have known an Elisabeth M. VAN LEEUWEN
who was named as the informant on the death certificate of Gertrude WINOGRAD
who died 23 April 1988 in San Diego, California. Elisabeth, listed as a
friend, was living at XXXX Mt. Alifan Drive in San Diego, at the time of
Gertrude's death. I believe this Elisabeth was the same Elisabeth M.
VANLEEUWEN who died 24 April 1998 in San Diego County, CA. An online
California death record for the Elisabeth who died in 1998 lists her
father's surname as DERIX and her mother's maiden name as WOLTGENS.
Elisabeth Derix VANLEEUWEN was born 25 January 1923 outside the United
I am interested in Elisabeth solely because of her connection to Gertrude
WINOGRAD. Gertrude, born 1902 in Russia, immigrated to the U.S.A. about
1913, and spent most of her adult life living in New York (Rochester and
later the Bronx). She was employed for an unknown number of years as a
secretary at the Jewish Museum in New York City. She served as the executrix
of the estate of Millie Marx of Manhattan, NY, whose family I am
researching, and as such, was the last person known to possess Millie Marx's
family papers. Gertrude, who never married, was preceded in death by her
mother, Sarah Hirschenbaum WINOGRAD, her unmarried brother, Harold WINOGRAD,
and most likely also by her sister, Esther WINOGRAD, so trying to contact
any of Gertrude's immediate family is not a possibility.
I would appreciate hearing >from anyone who might have been acquainted with
either Gertrude WINOGRAD or Elisabeth Derix VANLEEUWEN. Thank you.
