This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Born on December 9, 1896, she grew up in Mexico and attended school in England, St. Louis, and Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania.

She married Towner Phelan, a bank executive, in 1924; her full name was Elizabeth Simon Phelan.  She was a self-trained sculptor, primarily in wood, and began exhibiting around 1940.  She was a member of the St. Louis Artists Guild and exhibited there often, as well as at the Sculptors Gallery, a local gallery, and the St. Louis Art Museum.  Her last exhibit was in 1975, where 20 of her sculptures were displayed in the Climatron at the Missouri Botanical Garden.
