Elaine Kay (Smith) Stevenson, 59, of Columbus, OH, passed away peacefully on February 23, 2018 surrounded by her loving family. Elaine was born in Cleveland on February 21, 1959 and raised in Cuyahoga Falls. Preceding her in death was her father Ronald W. Smith. She is survived by her mother, Barbara F. Ingram of Stow; siblings, Eric W. Smith (Susan) of Akron, Karen E. Wohlers (Erick) of Springfield, MA, Kurt W. Smith of Idaho Springs, CO; beloved nieces, Rachel McGowan (John) of Uniontown and Courtney Ann Smith of Akron; nephews, Dyllan and Mitchell Smith of Idaho Springs, CO; and many friends and relatives. Elaine will be remembered for her kindness and gentle spirit. She was a dedicated, loving, and proud Aunt to Rachel and Courtney, and loved to attend their religious and academic events. She was an excellent cook and loved gathering with her family during the holidays, especially making Seafood Risotto with her nieces for the celebration of the Feast of the Seven Fishes. She loved animals and the many pets she cared for throughout her lifetime. Elaine graduated from Cuyahoga Falls High School; received a Bachelor of Arts in History from The Ohio State University and a Juris Doctorate, cum laude, from Capital University Law School, where she was on the Dean's List and a member of Beta Court of The Order of the Curia. Elaine dedicated her 20-year legal career to the State Personnel Board of Review (SPBR) as an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) and, additionally, later served as ALJ and Staff Attorney to the State Employment Relations Board (SERB). Elaine's colleagues, some of whom worked with her for 20 years, remember her not only as a distinguished practitioner of the law, but also as a cherished friend whose presence is deeply missed.
