Elaine was my mother-in -law Betty's best friend from elementary school a 75 year relationship. She was a treasure, she was a friend through and through to Betty. My favorite interaction with Elaine - one of the first times I met her - was running into her at Macy's as we were shopping for a special event dress for Betty, and I had her in some outfit, thinking it was perfect, yet Betty was not comfortable in it, and it was right then when we ran into Elaine; and she said "don't let them change you, Betty." And Elaine was so right, so direct, and I so admire that! My kind of woman! (Needless to say, we did not but the outfit...) She was looking out for her friend's best interest, and not about to let someone - even a daughter in law - take her her comfort zone. Elaine was absolutely right! She was at Betty's side when Burt passed, when Susan passed and every single difficult time, and she was always included in every celebratory event. Elaine was family. Elaine was very active and had such a positive attitude, she never slowed down and didn't want life to pass her by. Elaine included her friends in her adventures and just basic chores to help someone, like Betty who doesn't drive. She took Betty to the store, to the salon, shopping, and movie and dinner every Saturday year after year. She helped in every imaginable way. Elaine loved talking about the Cubs with Steven - she was a great fan, and could those two would dive into Cubs talk! She was a great fan. Elaine was truly a special person, she made the most positive impact, she will be greatly, greatly missed by all of us.

I could never have imagined a more wonderful friend and neighbor than Elaine. Always there to lend an ear or opinion during good times or bad, Elaine had a way of somehow seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and making everyone she touched feel a bit better. I suppose that was her greatest gift.

Elaine always told it like it was, and I respected her for that, even if we didnt always agree. Family was always paramount to her, as it should be, and her eyes lit up when she talked about the accomplishments of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Although Elaine enjoyed a long and happy life, it seems we can never get enough of those who touch our hearts so deeply. We dont want it to end ever. We always want more of those we love. I will be hearing Elaine knocking at my door, smelling her blueberry muffins in the oven, and remember chatting with her on an almost daily basis for the rest of my life. And these will certainly be the most pleasant of memories.
