Elaine was born on August 4, 1940, in the steel town of Aliquippa, Pennsylvania to Sol and Evelyn Kriesberg (Buck). After making her career choice at an early age, Elaine pursued a Bachelor's Degree from Slippery Rock State Teachers' College. At Racoon Elementary School, she met her best friend and soulmate, Donald E. McPeak, also a teacher in the Hopewell District. After their marriage, they moved to Arizona where they began their family. Later Elaine pursued her Master's Degree at Arizona State University. She retired after 26 years in the Peoria School District and worked an additional seven years as a student teacher supervisor for ASU West. Elaine is survived by her husband of 53 years: Donald E.
