Elisabeth Sue Hornbrook was born on June 27, 1984, in Spokane, Wash., the third of four children born to Lynn and Jody Hornbrook. As she was growing up, her family lived in Spokane and Lake Oswego, Ore.
Elly graduated from Lakeridge High School in 2001, and then pursued another of her loves: travel. She toured Australia and Ireland on her own, and visited Spain during the two years that she was nanny to a family who adored her. Elly worked at Lake Grove Veterinary Clinic and at the Christi Care Center for children with emotional and behavioral problems. In 2006 Elly received her BA in liberal arts from The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Wash.
Elly loved the outdoors and all that came with it. She played soccer and lacrosse as a secondary school student, and took every opportunity she could to hike in the woods, play on the beach, snowboard on the slopes, or ride horses on the trail or in the ring.
Above all else, Elly loved her family, but animals came in a close second, especially horses and dogs. She rescued several dogs, and her gentle pitbull-lab mix now seems lost without her.
Elly was a person of faith, always confiding her thoughts to her private journal. She enjoyed photography and reading, especially inspirational sayings and writings. Her sisters called her a "movie freak" because she would watch her favorites over and over.
Anyone who knew Elly would call her cute, sweet, sensitive, and caring. These traits never left her, even as she spent the final five years of her life fighting hard to overcome the illnesses that challenged her. Her final act of caring is being a tissue and bone donor.
Elly was preceded in death by her father Lynn, and her brother Seth. She is survived by her mother Jody, her sisters Anna and Mary, her nephews Kyle and Logan, her grandfather Gerald Everitt, and an extended family of cousins, aunts and uncles.
Elly's life will be celebrated at a Memorial Service on Thursday, May 30, 2013 at 4:00 PM in the "Courtyard Room" at Rolling Hills Community Church, 3550 SW Borland Rd, Tualatin, OR 97062.
