Junior League of Montgomery

In Memory of Elizabeth "Tootsie" Thigpen Emmet, Past President 1972-1973


Elizabeth “Tootsie” Thigpen Emmet, Past President of the Junior League of Montgomery, passed away on November 18. She was 81 years old. Tootsie leaves behind a lifetime of community service, in addition to a loving family that includes four children, seven grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.


Past President Suzanne Davidson remembers Tootsie as an invaluable force for good in her community, saying, “Tootsie was one of the most amazing women I have ever met. Many people are active in the community during a portion of their lives, but Tootsie devoted her entire life to serving others. I never knew of an organization that asked for her help that did not receive it. She taught me that being a good leader meant being organized, not getting caught up in who got the credit and listening more than you talk.
