Elaine was a strong, independent woman. Her friendly personality and sunny smile radiated
warmth and she always lit up the room.

Prior to coming to Tucson, Elaine maintained a private law practice before joining the NY City
Corporation Council’s Office practicing in Queens County Family Court and eventually as a
Support Magistrate in the NY State Family Court. Elaine retired and moved with her husband
Bob to Tucson in 2004.

Elaine demonstrated her commitment to the shared values, policies, and goals of the
Democratic Party. She helped in the election of candidates at the local, state, and Federal
levels with her boundless energy, her “all hands on deck” attitude, and her eager, hands-on
involvement. She was a gracious host for numerous Meet and Greet candidate fundraising
parties over the years.

Always eager to take on new challenges, Elaine and Bob were tireless workers for their
Legislative Districts, were members of Nucleus Club, and served on the Board of Directors of
the Tanque Verde Valley Democratic Club where they were designated Emeritus Board
Members with gratitude for past service. They were awarded the 2017 Martin Bacal Lifetime
Achievement Award by the Democrats of Greater Tucson.

We are inspired by a life well-lived.

Pat Wiedhopf
Chair, Tanque Verde Valley Democratic Club
