Our friend and longtime North Beach resident, passed away at the California Pacific Medical Center during the night of March 11th. Elaine died of natural causes after a brief illness.
Born in Knoxville, Tennessee, Elaine lived all her adult life in San Francisco. She was employed by the Bechtel Corporation and the law firm of Brobeck, Phleger and Harrison. But in her heart, Elaine was an actress. And in later life, she got to study at the Shelton Studios, and perform on stage at the San Francisco Playhouse. She was also an avid dancer, a tango enthusiast; and if she remembered the lyrics, always ready to join anyone in an impromptu duet of the old songs.
She was an independent woman, and will be missed by her friends, neighbors, and acquaintances at the Calvary Presbyterian Church and the Telegraph Hill Dwellers.
Elaine requested there be no funeral. Her remains were cremated by Duggan’s Funeral Service, and will be scattered at sea. For donations in her memory: San Francisco Senior and Disability Action, or the Tenderloin Housing Clinic [for attorney defense against Ellis Evictions.]
