Elaine Booth, 87, died peacefully at her home in Lacey, Washington on April 12, 2012. She was a lifelong resident of Evanston, Wyoming until she moved to Washington State four and a half years ago.
Elaine was born on August 28, 1924 in Evanston, the daughter of Albert F. Henley and Mabel (Warburton) Henley. She graduated from Evanston High School in 1942. She married Andrew T. Anderson on June 28, 1942 in Paris, Idaho. They divorced in 1972. She married Leon Booth on May 28, 1977 in Evanston.
Elaine worked as the Uinta County Deputy Clerk for many years until her retirement. She also worked in the food industry during her early years as a waitress and cook. Her last employment adventure was hostess at Lottie’s Restaurant. She was a hard worker, good at her jobs, and enjoyed life with co-workers and customers. It was said that Elaine was the “Queen Bee” wherever she worked.
In years past, you could find Elaine out on the Purple Sage golf course, attempting a try at the game of golf, or bowling with all her good friends, taking fun trips to national bowling tournaments. She loved playing pinochle with her friends and sister, Joyce, at the senior center. Elaine could out last and out shop anyone. She loved buying new clothes without trying them on, and many clothes hung in her closet with the tags still on them. In her later years, Elaine would be seen at the physical therapy pool swimming with her friends. She loved getting her hair done every week and thought very highly of the girls at Hair, Etc. While not much a person to enjoy crafts, her pastime was her word puzzles to keep her mind sharp.
Elaine was particularly close to her two loving sisters, Joyce Holmes and Marjorie Roccaro. They were nearly inseparable and lived in the same town they were born in until Marj’s death and Elaine’s move. That was a hard move and Elaine longed for the time she would be able to go back home. She loved all her family and cherished her time with then, wherever she lived.
Elaine is survived by one son, Michael (Kay) Anderson of South Jordan, Utah; and one daughter, Marjean (Sid) Otton of Tumwater, Washington; six grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren; her beloved sister, Joyce Holmes; two stepdaughters, Toni Lynn (Steve) Kener and Jeri Lee (Steve) Christensen; one stepson, Dain; stepdaughter-in-law, Susie (Dennis) Hinton; six step grandchildren and eight step great grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Albert and Mabel; husband, Leon Booth; sister, Marjorie Roccaro; and stepson, Tracy.
Elaine is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
