Stucker, Elaine James
The Guest Book is expired.
Elaine Stucker was a long time resident of Southern California. Born in Rapid City, SD to Edward and Ruth James, the family moved to California during WWII. While raising four daughters as a single parent, Elaine entered the car business and became a successful dealer of VW, Porsche, and later, BMWs in Huntington Park. Four J Motors was her "baby" for over 20 years and she treated her employees and customers as family. She lived for many years in Orange County and spent time in the Palm Springs area with family and friends.
For the last 15 years, Horizon House in Seattle, WA was her home.
She is survived by three of the four Js, Jane, Judy and Jennifer. Jill passed away 30 years ago. The immediate family in Washington include Jane and William Van Dorn, Judy and Bob Cline, both of Seattle and Jennifer Stucker of Spokane. She is also survived by four granddaughters and seven great-grandchildren. Elaine helped raise Chandra Stucker of Huntington Beach, CA.
Condolences may be sent to the family c/o Cline at Horizon House, 900 University St., #1903, Seattle, WA 98101.
