Elizabeth M. Bandman (known affectionately as Taffy or "T"), beloved wife, mother and friend to many, passed quietly at home after a long illness. A passionate master gardener and designer, Taffy created an extensive garden in Woodland, California that some believed rivaled Monet's garden in Giverny, France. She also enthusiastically shared her extensive expertise as a docent at UC Davis Arboretum. Taffy is survived by her husband Everett and son Evan. There will be no funeral. If you wish to give in Taffy's memory, please donate to a charity of your choice.
