In Loving Memory of Elaine V. Bookout
April 9, 1940 – October 8, 2014
Elaine was the only child of Vern and Marjorie Farnsworth. Born in Vancouver, B.C., Canada, she moved to California with her family as a teenager and became a citizen of the United States in 1961. After a brief courtship, she married Harold D. Bookout on April 11, 1969 and they celebrated 43 years of marriage until his death in 2012. Together they raised two daughters, Pamela (Bill) Passarelli and Barbara (Sean) Coons and ran a successful plumbing business for 35 years. She was ambitious during her career and became the first woman voted into office for a local plumbing union. Elaine was a loving wife, mother and grandmother to three grandchildren, Catherine, Grace and Jack. After retiring, she enjoyed traveling with Harold and taking extended vacations to spend time 'spoiling' her grandchildren.
