Elayne Cohodes Epstein Passed away in her home June 30 at the age of 81, surrounded in her final days by family and friends. She was a spirited, intelligent, caring, and compassionate woman known for her beauty, wit and humor and generosity. She will be missed by a wide circle of family and friends. Born July 31, 1926 in Iron Mountain, MI, to Bertha (Ringer) and Louis Cohodes. Her family moved to California where she graduated from McClatchy High School in Sacramento and the University of California, Berkeley. Her happiest years were spent raising her family in San Francisco, where she was an active volunteer for the San Francisco Museum of Art, Planned Parenthood and the World Affairs Council. She is preceded in death by her parents and sisters, Marcia Koretsky and Natalie Cohodes. Survived by her brother Albert Cohodes (Tamara); daughter, Lisa Stanton (David) of Newport Beach; son David Epstein (Judith) of Tiburon; her wonderful grandchildren Corey, Holly, and Lauren Stanton, and Benjamin and Nicolas Epstein; and by many loving nieces and nephews and friends in the San Francisco Bay Area and elsewhere. In recognition of her strong interest in the visual arts, and her years of service as a docent, the family has established the Elayne Epstein Fund at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Charitable gifts may be sent to the fund care of SFMOMA, 151 Third Street, San Francisco, CA 94103-3107
