Elaine Marie Sedlacek

Obituary Condolences

Elaine passed away peacefully in her home on Sunday, October 5, 2008 at 7:00 a.m. surrounded by family and friends. Elaine was born in New Haven, CT on September 30, 1963, grew up in Darwin, MN, and moved to Castle Rock, CO 9 years ago from Albuquerque, NM. She is survived by her loving and devoted husband, Walter ("Wally") D. Sedlacek, Commander, U.S. Navy (retired). Elaine and Wally were married on August 5, 1996 at Lake Arvilla in Dassel, MN. Elaine is also survived by her father and mother, Frank L. and Dolores M. Orzolek; brother, Frank (Terri) G. Orzolek and their sons Mark and Steven of Darwin, MN; and her beloved step-daughters and best friends, Rebecca (Philip) Craycraft, Kerrie Sims, Nicole Allen, Kristin (Jerry) Vowell, and their children.

She received her B.S. in Food Sciences from the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. Elaine was a beautiful woman who enjoyed life and never wanted to rush but instead wanted to enjoy the journey. One of her great joys in life was sampling the best the culinary world had to offer. She was most grateful for the opportunity to live in Munich, Germany for two years with her husband, Wally, where she made many friends and enjoyed many wonderful travel opportunities. Services will be held on Thursday, October 9 at Olinger Andrews Caldwell Gibson Funeral Home, 407 Jerry Street, Castle Rock, CO.
