Elaine was of Jehovah’s Witnesses and remained faithful to the end. Elaine was an avid knitter, she loved to sing, play the piano, a storyteller and enjoyed traveling, especially going down to Florida with her husband Ralph and best friends Claude and Neysa Gilks. Elaine loved children and was affectionately known as auntie Elaine to many. She had a knack to calm babies down much to the relief of many mothers in her congregation.
