    Elaine was a sweet and kind classmate. She was always considerate of other people's ideas and beliefs. She often spoke of how good and kind her daughter and son-in-law was to her while she lived in their home. God bless you. Phyllis A. Roark

    I remember Elaine as a wonderful warm and fun lady when Teri would bring me home with her from MWC. Her legacy of wonderful children, grandchildren and past students will go on sharing her example of how to love and be loved.
