Elner was an avid quilter, Master Weaver, sculptor, and had many other talents. She loved to work on puzzles, read, and collect dolls. She had the voice of an angel and everyone remembers a time when she sang a sweet song to them. Elner was loved by everyone who knew her and was called the "Sunshine Girl" at Autumn Wind. She was a godly woman who put her family first, always. She was a much loved matriarch, a pillar of strength that kept her family together.
