Gay Elizabeth Gustason, 92, known to her many friends as “Beth,” died Dec. 28 in La Grande. No services are planned at this time.

Beth was born on May 8, 1921, in Baker City, to Ray S. and Elizabeth (Irby) Lamoreaux. Her grade school years were spent in the Portland area. Then her family relocated to California and she graduated from Hollywood High School. At the age of 19, she became a model for “The Ester Williams” modeling agency.

In 1960, Beth worked for Liton’s Savings and Loan in Palo Alto, Calif. Later, she was employed by Ray-Chem Industries in Menlo Park, Calif. 

In 1964, she married Robert Benson in Redwood City, Calif., and along with Mr. Benson came his 13-year-old son Bobby. Bobby has the highest regards for his stepmother, Beth, and is grateful for her influence on his life, family members said. 

In 1980, Beth met and married John Gustason from San Carlos, Calif., and along with John came his delightful 13-year-old daughter Kaye, who is grateful for the love they shared, family members said. 

The family lived in San Mateo, Calif., until 1985, when they moved to Henderson, Nev. John and Beth enjoyed traveling and entertaining their many friends.

After John’s death, Beth continued living in Henderson until 2011, at which time, she moved into the La Grande Retirement Center, where she had excellent care and made many more friends.

Beth is survived by three stepchildren, Bobby Benson of Belmont, Calif., John Gustason II, of Sacramento, Calif., and Kaye Gustason-Saxberg of San Mateo. She was preceded in death by her parents, Ray and Elizabeth (Bess) Lamoreaux, her brother, Irby Lamoreaux, and her husband, John.

Beth enjoyed a full and wonderful life and will be missed by all who knew her, the family said.
