From The Times-Picayune (New Orleans, Louisiana), Tuesday, November 16, 1976:

"Stern Rites Held in Calif.

Private funeral services for Mrs. Elsie Kahn Stern, widow of New Orleans philanthropist Percival Stern, were held Friday in California.

Mrs. Stern, a resident of New Orleans for approximately 35 years, died Wednesday in San Francisco, her birthplace. She was interred in Hills of Eternity Cemetery in Colma, Calif.

Mrs. Stern, with her husband who died in 1970, participated in civic and charitable endeavors. She was an active volunteer at Magnolia School where a cottage is named for her and was interested in Junior Achievement. She was a member of the Sisterhood of Touro Synagogue.

Mr. Stern, a recipient of the Times-Picayune Loving Cup, was known for many philanthropies, including gifts to Tulane and Loyola Universities for science research and teaching. He also donated the Junior Achievement headquarters building at 218 Camp St.

Mrs. Stern is survived by a daughter, Frederica Lewis; a son, Lloyd K. Lloyd; a stepdaughter, Lois Brown; seven grandchildren; and 12 great-grandchildren."
