Elaine and I taught together at Watson Elementary for many years. We became really good friends and shared a lot of stories together. She always gave me good advice and was such a great listener! Elaine loved the Lord and loved her family. I know that she will be missed!

I worked with Elaine at Watson for many years... but, more than a co-worker, I considered her a close friend. We rode together to Little Rock for years, we went to water aerobics together, and we talked daily about the crazy world we live in! She adored her family- especially her grandson Nicholas! I was always so excited to see her around town. Elaine will be missed so much! I’m so thankful that she loved Jesus and is celebrating with Him!
