Each nomination must be submitted on the form listed below. The honoree will be selected solely on the information provided by the nominator. Incomplete forms may be considered ineligible for assessment. A selection committee from a neighboring community will screen all nominees and select the top nomination from each category, determining the women who will receive the 2019 Anna Taussig Awards.

Born in Vienna, Austria in 1911, Anna was raised in Prague, Czechoslovakia. She worked in the family department store until her marriage to Frank Taussig in 1933. They raised two boys: Mike, a professor of economics and author; Peter, an attorney. Anna immigrated to the United States through Ellis Island by train and ship.

Anna earned a bachelor’s degree, summa cum laude, in biology at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York. The Taussig family moved to Colorado Springs where Anna then earned her master’s degree in French Literature. She taught foreign languages – French, German and Russian – at Pueblo County High School and then at the University of Southern Colorado until her retirement in 1977.

Anna had an extensive volunteer career with the YWCA of Pueblo, the League of Women Voters, ZONTA Club of Pueblo and International Club as well as affiliations in many other organizations such as Sangre de Cristo Arts and Conference Center, El Pueblo History Museum and the Unitarian Universalist Church.

Anna Taussig was a generous person who extended her hand unselfishly to many in need in our community. We, therefore, are proud to honor her by presenting the annual Tribute to Women.
