Reno - Elaine Seeliger, 79, passed away on July 8, 2019. She was born October 10, 1939, in Durango, Colorado the daughter of Paul and Ruby Sandoval.

Elaine was raised in Gerlach, NV and then moved to Reno to work and attend business school. While working at the Holiday Hotel in Reno, she met the love of her life, John Frances Seeliger. Elaine and John married May 8, 1960 and enjoyed 51 years of marriage before John's untimely death in 2011.

Elaine was a loving wife and mother and especially excelled as grandma/grammie to her 6 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren. She and John were present at all local events of their grandchildren or great-grandchildren and made many road trips to northeastern Nevada, Idaho and Oregon as well. It was not unusual for them to attend Chris's game in the morning then travel to Winnemucca to watch AJ, Kate or Kelli, then onto Idaho to see Lauren and Darren. The more they attended, the louder the cheering.
