I loved her laugh her sense of humor and her multiple sneezes. She will be deeply missed by many friends Remember the happy times. Sympathy and love to all.

    My heartfelt condolences, Aunt Elaine will be sorely missed. She had the type of charm and wit that lit up a room. She was kind and caring and always had a funny story to share. And anyone who spent time with her knows what a fantastic cook she was. She shared that gift with so many! I’ll miss her positive attitude and her honest, no nonsense advise. She was such an important part of my life and I am honored to have been able to walk with her for a time in this life.
