Clarke, Elaine M.

Elaine M. Clarke born in Vermillion, South Dakota and longtime resident of New Mexico, was called to be with her Lord on Thursday March 14, 2017.

Elaine is survived by her son, Shain McKay and his partner Mary Brazell; partner Sylvester McKay; sisters Dorothy, Rose Marie, Sharon, and Rita; brothers Vernon and Pete; and many nieces, nephews, and grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents and baby brother.

Elaine graduated from St. Paul's High School in Marty, SD, and studied to become a nun before finding love with Sylvester. She worked in the Bureau of Indian Affairs for many years, transferring to Albuquerque, NM where she would eventually retire. She was a devout Catholic and loved attending Mass at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church.

Elaine has no pain, no worries, only love in God's loving arms. The cremation will be private.
