Elaine, a long time and valued employee of the organisation, succumbed to her battle with cancer on Tuesday, 5 October 2010. During her time with the NSWTA she was one of the early “glass ceiling breakers” for female sports administrators through her role as the NSWTA Tournament Manager. A tough job that she handled with aplomb, dedication, professionalism and when needed, humour. Her personal nature and approach saw her make many friends in her time not just with the NSWTA but indeed throughout the sport in general and we know many will be touched by this sad news.On behalf of the Board, Staff and the wider Touch Football community we pass on our condolences and loving thoughts to Bob, Cameron and Stephanie, Evan and Kristy and Elaine’s granddaughter’s Amelia, Claudia and Isla at this sad time. Elaine’s Funeral will be held on Monday, 11 October at 1.30pm, South Chapel Eastern Suburbs Crematorium. Followed by a celebration of life at Bardwell Park RSL.
