Elaine Larsen,

"When former Pacifica Tribune Editor and Publisher Elaine Larsen died Monday morning, Jan. 12, Pacifica became a much poorer, less compassionate place. Given her 26 years of watching the community and writing about the Pacifica scene, she would undoubtedly have appreciated a gathering of friends reminiscing about the stories she wrote and the memories she created that so accurately define and depict her profound commitment to this community.

So let us share the stories that shaped Elaine Larsen and those that she wrote which helped shape Pacifica itself.

A community reception to honor and remember Elaine will be held on Saturday, Feb. 7, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Pacifica Community Center, 540 Crespi Drive (corner of Crespi Drive and Highway 1). Light refreshments will be served.

Chris Hunter, longtime colleague of Elaine's and a prior Editor and Publisher of the Pacifica Tribune, will be the master of ceremonies.

Please make every effort to attend and share your stories, either informally among her many friends and family members or at the microphone so everyone can hear.

Additionally, a memorial fund has been established at First National Bank of Northern California to assist Elaine's husband, Jim Carson, with final arrangements during a trying time.

Kindly make your donation checks out to "Elaine Larsen Memorial Fund" acct # 09 142752. Donations may be dropped off at First National Bank of Northern California (behind Safeway at Linda Mar Ctr), or mailed to 1005 Terra Nova Blvd, Suite A, Pacifica, CA 94044, or brought to the Feb. 7 reception.

Please RSVP for the reception to"
