Both Jack and Elaine always welcomed me like family. I called them Mom and Dad for the 30 plus years I knew them. Mom and I shared a birthday and she shared her home with me whenever I visited Sharon over the years. We laughed and complained at the TV and the last time I saw her she hugged me and told me to come back anytime! She was a great lady and will be missed by many! RIP mom, Love, Cathy

Elaine was one of my bowling partners and we shared many good times. When GOD puts the bowling team together
HE will call on Elaine. She was a good friend and I will miss her. Joanne

We bowled with Elaine for several years and missed her after she moved to south Florida in order to be closer to family.

Our thoughts and prayers are with her daughters and their families at this time.
