As a sister to my Aunt Helvi, Elna felt like my aunt. I remember her many kindnesses. She spent an entire day walking us around Lewiston to help us find an apartment. Once, while I was in college, I became stranded in Lewiston when the bus station closed early. I walked to her house; Elna and Gerry welcomed me with open arms and walked me back to the bus at the right time to make sure I was safe. I still remember the little pink bottle of perfume she gave me that was shaped like a puppy. Just a few years ago, in her 90s, she was still swimming in the lake at family reunion. You were loved by many.
