Birth: Nov. 17, 1898
Cripple Creek
Teller County
Colorado, USA
Death: Jan. 1, 1937
Monrovia
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Elmore was born in Cripple Creek, Colorado, November 17, 1898. His family moved to Denver, Colorado, when he was ten years of age. Thereafter they traveled to Arizona, and it was in Bisbee, in 1915, that Elmore's cousin, who was to become his wife three years later, convinced him of the truth of the Baha'i Faith. This she did, aided by her mother.
Unity was the one thing Elmore loved most and he had a quiet and unobtrusive nature which attracted many friends to him.
For his funeral, each member of the Assembly mentioned one good quality of the deceased. The result was a moving compilation. Among the qualities mentioned were: "sincerity; sacrifice of time for the Cause; devotion to the Cause; thoughtfulness of others; a good Baha'i in the use of time; kindness, generosity to the Cause and to his friends; humility; his lack of fault-finding; a peace-maker."
At his expressed wish, Elmore was buried in the last grave remaining in the plot of ground where Thornton Chase, first American Baha'i, is at rest, in Inglewood Cemetery, outside of Los Angeles, California. On March 8, 1937, Shoghi Effendi sent the following message to Mrs. Finks, Secretary of the Spiritual Assembly of Los Angeles, California.
"Please convey to the relatives of the late Mr. Duckett the Guardian's sympathy and condolences on the occasion of the passing away of their beloved and esteemed friend. The services which he has rendered the Cause Shoghi Effendi deeply appreciates and he will specially pray for the progress of his soul in the Abha Kingdom."
