My sister, Carol Wussow Fredrickson and I, Mary Ann Wussow Fredrickson, are the only surviving first cousins on Elaine's maternal side of her family. Carol lives in Mankato, MN, and I live in Decatur, TX. After we found out that Elaine lived in Frisco, TX, we were able to visit her on several occasions. The three of us enjoyed our visit and we shared old pictures and memories of our Grandparents, Emil and Mary Wussow, who are deceased. It was always a fun time to go visit Elaine and we are sure she also enjoyed our visits with her.

May Elaine now rest in peace!
