Katrina Ely Tiffany's step mother was Susan Wierman.Katrina Ely Tiffany was a dedicated and charismatic suffragist who held a number of important positions. She was the president of the New York Collegiate Equal Franchise League for five years, a recording secretary of the Woman Suffrage Party of New York, and chairman of the War Service Committee of the NAWSA.

Her classmate Frances Arnold described Tiffany marching in one of the New York parades:

Katrina Tiffany carried a large flag much too heavy for most, which a mocking wind tried continually to wrest from her determined hands. Sometimes the flag completely enveloped and obliterated her from view, once to her great relief for she was passing the building where she knew her unconverted husband was looking sorrowfully down from the window.

Her Step Mother was Susan WIERMAN Ely.
