ELIZABETH ANN STUART (1957-2010)
WCLV Senior Account Executive Elizabeth Stuart died suddenly of cardiac arrest
at Hillcrest Hospital on Tuesday, December 28, 2010. She had worked for WCLV
in advertising sales and projects since 1996.
Previously, she was Executive Assistant to Cleveland Orchestra Music Director
Christoph von Dohnanyi and an Executive Assistant at the Cleveland Canadian
Consul General’s office.
She received a Bachelor of Music Degree from the University of Cincinnati’s
Conservatory of Music and a Master of Music Degree from The Cleveland Institute
Liz sang professionally with various Cleveland area ensembles and had a studio of
vocal students. Most recently, she was active in organizing and performing in the
pre-Christmas flash mob performance of the Hallelujah Chorus at the West Side Market.
She was a vocal instructor at the Music School Settlement.
She is survived by her daughter Alexandra, long-time companion Russell
Bryan, brother Rob Stuart and sister Kate Sandstrum.
Liz was highly important to WCLV. In addition to handling the day to day advertising
accounts of many area arts organizations and commercial firms, she fostered a
number of special projects for the station, the foremost being the annual Jubilation Church Choral Festival, which will present its fourth edition this coming
May. She also organized WCLV’s annual sponsorship of the JDRF Walk to
Cure Diabetes at the Cleveland Zoo.
Liz was imaginative, creative and deeply involved in WCLV’s mission to preserve
classical music on the radio in northeast Ohio. In her honor, WCLV will name the
Jubilation Church Choral Festival after her.
A Memorial Service for Liz will take place Saturday, January 8 at 2:00 PM at the
new home of the Euclid Avenue Congregational Church at 30th and Euclid Avemue
(the former First United Methodist Church). Liz was a member of the Church’s Choir.

The WCLV Foundation Idea Center

Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation 6100 Rockside Woods Blvd. #445 Independence, OH 44131
To say the staff of WCLV, her family, many clients, friends and colleagues will miss
Liz is an overwhelming understatement. Our lives now have a void that will long remain with us.
