Born in Fort Worth on December 12, 1949, Elaine was the daughter of Natalie and Harry Cohn. She graduated from R. L. Paschal High School in 1968 and then attended The University of Texas at Austin where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Education in three years and graduated with high honors. Elaine went on to receive a Masters of Education in Counseling with highest honors from TCU. In 1972, Elaine married Dr. Alan G. Nogen, who in 1986 unexpectedly passed away. In 1988, Elaine married Jim Stanton and began their 29-year honeymoon. Elaine’s devotion and strong commitment to Judaism led to her lifetime involvement in the Fort Worth Jewish community. She was an active member of congregations Ahavath Sholom and Beth-El where she served on boards and chaired committees. She maintained a Jewish home for her family and raised her children with strong Jewish values. Giving back to the community was important to Elaine. For 25 years, she volunteered every Christmas to serve food and provide gifts to the homeless with B’nai B’rith where she also served on the Board and frequently volunteered preparing and serving meals to seniors. Elaine also served as President of the Women of Scott Theater, Volunteer Coordinator for Shakespeare in the Park, a Mayfest Chair, and docent at the Kimball Art Museum and the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. She was a teacher and later a school counselor. Being a stay-at-home mother was her favorite job. She and Jim loved to travel, so Elaine later became a Flight Attendant/Safety Instructor so they could take advantage of worldwide flight privileges and fulfill their dream of traveling once a month.
