E. Elaine Pfeiffer
1935 ~ 2014
Elaine was born July 19, 1935, to Ernest and Vesta Clyde in Fedora, SD, and passed away the morning of July 13, 2014. She was the valedictorian of her class at Fedora High School in 1953. She married Mel Pfeiffer December 11, 1955. Elaine worked for Standard Oil and Western General Dairies, from which she retired with 26 years of service. From South Dakota, Elaine lived in Minneapolis, MN; Salt Lake City, UT; Las Vegas, NV; St. George, UT; and for the last year has been back in SLC. Elaine loved her family, animals, and basketball-especially the Utah Jazz. For many years, she served in various ways at Christ Lutheran Church in Murray, UT where she and Mel were members.
Elaine is preceded in death by her father, Ernest Clyde, and her brother, Malford Clyde. She is survived by her husband, Mel; mother, Vesta Clyde; sister-in-law, Diana Clyde; her sons, Steve (Denise) Pfeiffer and John (Deanna) Pfeiffer; and grandchildren, Sarah Pfeiffer (Dan Fischer), James Pfeiffer, and Anthony (Rey) Pfeiffer-Gordillo.
The family wishes to thank the caregivers at Cottonwood Creek Senior Living Facility and Brighton Hospice for their care, concern, and compassion.
