Elaine was born on September 1, 1948, in Ste. Rose du Lac, Manitoba. She was raised by her parents in Crane River and was the third oldest of twelve children.
Elaine was a devoted mother and proud grandma. She was the family's matriarch. Elaine was always excited and willing to host birthday dinners for her children and grandchildren, and took pride in organizing holiday celebrations. Her enthusiasm for family gatherings and incredible cooking will be missed.
One of Elaine's greatest passions was square dancing. She was a member of the Norman Chief Memorial Dancers and loved to dance with her husband Fred. She took great pride in seeing her grandchildren jig. Elaine also loved to sing with her sisters and enjoyed listening to gospel and country music.
Elaine was honoured during her lifetime for her selfless service to her community. She was a mentor and great friend to many. We will miss her loving nature, straightforwardness, wise advice, and infectious laughter.

Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
Elaine was one of my favourite tenants in our building. I loved talking with her. She is full of joy and she's a breath of fresh air. When I first learned about her health problem. I am so saddened. The last time I saw her as if she's not the Elaine that I see every single day with full of energy and happiness. She will always be missed by her family and friends. My deepest condolences to the whole family. And to Elaine, you are now with our Creator, no more pain. This is not a goodbye instead until we meet again. - Posted by: Maria (Resident Manager) on: May 16, 2022
