Dear Alan and Marie, So sorry for your loss. She was a wonderful lady and we are glad we had the chance to know her.

Dear Family, So sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time. Great Lady Great Family. Love Ken & Shari Adams

Dear Alyson, Andrea, Chauncey, Alan, Alma and Ava,
You have been blessed with a wonderful mother. Elaine was always, so warm, and welcoming when we, with my parents, would stop by for a brief visit; as we traveled to or from Southern Utah. I loved her bright smile. She is my first cousin, but she seemed more like an aunt to me, since there is 20 years difference in our ages. I am sure that she has had a happy reunion with loved ones who have gone before. Thinking of her brings many...

Dear Alyson, Andrea, Chauncey, Alan, Alma and Ava, my sincere sympathy at the passing of your wonderful mother. Some of my most cherished childhood memories are of being at your mother's home when we would stop in Parowan on the way to or from Salt Lake. Aunt Elaine was always so gracious and kind.

I am sorry to hear about the passing of this great lady. Although we are distant cousins, I became better acquainted with Elaine through President Joe and Ava Milne (my brother in-law & sister-in-law) after she served with them in the Montana Mission home. We spent a lot of good times together in Joe and Ava's home in St. George. I loved reading her powerful and sweet obituary. What a wonderful way to honor her life. Much love to all of her family, Ora Sandberg Milne

I wish to express my sincere sympathy to your family as you mourn the loss of your dear loved one. May you find comfort knowing that, ''GOD IS FOR US, a refuge and strength, a help that is readily to be found Psalms 46; 1.

Parowan was and still is known for the Adam's families. Roy and Elaine were good friends of my parents, Glen and Grace Holyoak. A friendship we all heard about. Thoughts are with you at this time. Elaine left a great legacy.

I remember the way Elaine would crinkle her nose when she smiled. Her eyes were wide and bright, especially when speaking of her children. I always enjoyed that smile when I would come home to visit the Ward in Parowan. Elaine meant a little bit of home to me.

Living the commandments gave her spiritual blessings which sustained her throughout her life. "The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance." Gal...

I am sorry with the passing of your mother, she was such a sweet and loving person. I looked up to her in so many ways. I know she will be missed by all. May the Lord Bless your family at this time.
