Aunt Elaine has always been "around". But when you grace this earth for over 100 years, you will be around! We can only imagine all things she saw and heard in those many years. I will always remember her smile, she was rarely ever seen without her smile. You will be missed and the many, many memories you have created will always be "around".

We all were greatly blessed by being a part of Grandma Elaine's family. She always enlisted us in her many ongoing projects, improvements, and craft work. I believe she always worked everyone to completion. She always planned with economy, beauty, and durability in mind. Her loving energy still remains in all our hearts. I am hungry for all the wonderful food she cooked, I am looking at the crafts she made, I am happy her busy hands are resting in peace.
