The Parsson Society
Telling us of your intention to make a planned gift to the Cleveland Restoration Society will induct you into the Elizabeth J. Parsson Society, a group of Society members who care deeply about fulfilling our mission. As a member of the Parsson Society, you will be recognized in our annual report and invited to attend the Annual Leadership Donor reception.
Elizabeth Jane Parsson was born on October 7, 1917 and lived in the home her father had designed at 17815 Clifton Boulevard in Lakewood all her life. Her father, Raymond Dewitt Parsson, was a principal of the architecture firm Bohnard & Parsson and designed many homes in the Cleveland area in the early 20th century. Although Elizabeth resembled her mother Hannah, her personality favored her father's, and he was a strong influence in her life.
Preserving Greater Cleveland's architectural heritage was an important value to Elizabeth Parsson. She was a member of the Cleveland Restoration Society for many years, and attended many of CRS's tours and special events. Her strong belief in the CRS's mission prompted her to name the Cleveland Restoration Society as one of three beneficiaries of her estate.
By making a planned gift now to the Cleveland Restoration Society you can join Elizabeth in helping to build our region's future through the powerful tool of historic preservation.
