I am so saddened to have just learned of Elaine's passing. She and I were born only two days apart and our mothers' were in the hospital at the same time.

Elaine always challenged me to be better academically. I could never compete with her brilliance and quick thinking. My love to her family and friends. Woodstock has lost a great icon for sure!

I grew up in Woodstock with Elaine. While she was a couple of years behind me in school, we always had a friendship that I treasured through the years. Once I moved away I lost contact with Elaine and was only recently informed that she was ill. I will always regret not finding the time during the holidays to visit her. Blessings of comfort, strength and peace to her Mother and other family at this sad time.

Elaine was a 2nd cousin of mine, but I rarely got to see her due to my living in the Detroit, MI area for most of the past 40 years. We did correspond by email some, and I was always impressed with her accomplishments. I think of her mother along and along, and wish her the best.

The "Daughers" of Captain Edward Hagin, NSDAR of Dallas, GA wish to express our deepest sympathies to the family of our Georgia DAR "Sister". In reading of her life's accomplishments, it is obvious she has touched the lives of many people in most meaningful ways. We believe "Dr. Elaine" will be solely missed by all with whom she has met along life's journey.

Elaine was always friendly to anyone she met and respectful of everyone regardless of their status. She should have been our president

I always respected Elaine's input on the Library Board, both as an employee and as a Board member after I retired. We lost a great lady!

I am proud to say that Elaine Hubbard was my friend! We enjoyed many Cherokee basketball games sitting together. It was so fun just to be with her! Later in our teaching careers, Elaine would kid me and say that if I did a better job of teaching my elementary students, she wouldn't have to teach remedial classes in college. She was so amazing to be around. I got a big "kick" out of telling people that I was friends with a college math professor who had written math books. She was so smart but never made me feel insignificant. I was so blessed to get to spend time with her and I will greatly miss her! What wonderful contributions she made to our world!

Majorie and family, please accept my condolences, and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I just read about Elaine on social media this morning. I have thought about her so often over the years and hold memories of our childhood dear to my heart. She taught me how to climb trees and play ball and made summers with Grandmother a special time. Sharing in your sorrow, with love and friendship.

It must have been in my first, or possibly second, year of teaching English at Cherokee High when I first met Elaine. Over the years we served on the Sequoyah Regional Library Board together and I was aware of her many other activities. A beautiful person with a loving and thoughtful heart--she will be missed.

Elaine was 18 years old and a high school senior when I first came to know her and the family. She is one of the most thoughtful, caring, genuine people anyone could ever meet. As an older teenager Elaine was one of the most mature young people I have ever known. Through the years as I have talked with her on occasion, I have found her to be the magnification of all her younger qualities. She will truly be missed, until we meet her again in heaven, where her Christian faith will have been completed, and where she and Homer Hughes will walk together again.
