ELIZABETH GAIL TEGARDEN January 25, 1954 June 6, 2015 Elizabeth Gail Tegarden, 61, of Elyria, OH, passed away on Saturday, June 6, 2015 in Stein Hospice Center in Sandusky, OH. She was born on January 25, 1954 in Marion, Indiana, and lived in Gary for 35 years. Born to the late Mary and Robert Tegarden, she was a fun, stylish, and hard working woman. Dedicated and compassionate, her life was committed to helping the lives of children through her legal work. She graduated from Boston University and Valparaiso School of Law, which prepared her to take the demanding role of CASA director in Lake County. She was a professor for twenty years at the VU School of Law, all before being selected to become juvenile court magistrate. She loved her dogs, leaving behind her beloved, Matilda. Her creativity and love of art was exemplified through her elaborative and thoughtful presentation of crafts and her appreciation for music, especially Tom Petty and Bob Dylan. Gail is survived by her brothers: Kenneth, Michael, and Robert; her nieces, Chrissy, Sarah, Becky, and Katie; their mother, Marlene; grand- nieces, Allie, and Lilly; nephews: Matthew and Ricky, and grand-nephew, Thomas.
