Elaine Briles

Evansville - Elaine Marie Briles, 64, passed away peacefully at her home on February 16, 2021. She was born on November 8th, 1956 to Margaret (Elsfelder) Morris and James Morris in Evansville, Indiana.

Elaine was a very energetic, loud, loving, and passionate person. Her biggest passion was the love she had for her friends and family, especially her husband, kids and even more so for her 8 grandchildren. Of her many jobs, Elaine loved being a grandma the most. In her spare time, she loved to crochet, cook, and attend any events that her children or grandchildren took part in.

Elaine is survived by her loving husband, Marlin; her children Andrea (Aaron) Smith, Aaron (Angie) Briles, Arrick (Molly) Briles, and Austin (Erin) Briles; her grandchildren Audrey, Ella, Ayden, Declan, Oliver, Westyn, Graham, Grayson; her father James Morris; her siblings Carol (Lyman) Matherly, Danny Morris, Bob (Sheila) Morris, Mike (Terri) Morris, Laura (Tim) Wathen, and Rick (Jan) Morris.

Elaine was preceded in death by her mother Margaret Morris.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

I graduated with Marlin and Elaine and grew up with Marlin. I have been out of touch with both of them for several years. I am so sorry for the loss of Elaine. I can remember her with short black hair with what they called a pixie haircut. May you rest in peace and good luck to you Marlin. Our family's were close with all the sports going on then

This wonderful lady was one of the most loving, friendly, caring people I have been blessed to know in my life. Her strength and determination amazed me. Her smile was infectious as well as her sense of humor that was always good for making you smile as well. My love and thoughts go out to her whole family, who she adored. My heart aches for you all. I will truly miss her every day and the view out my window will never be the same.
