The OP's suggestion was an Electra Amsterdam, made by the same company as the Townie. It has almost the same geometry as a Townie, it is just a very classy looking one.
As such, it is a good contender for your mother. Others would include the Trek Pure, Giant Suede, perhaps one of the new auto-shifting bikes like a Trek Lime.
