Elaine was born in Chicago, Illinois on June 30, 1923. She graduated from Leslie Lewis Elementary School and from Austin High School class of 19401/2 in Chicago. During high school, she attended a ballroom dance class at the YMCA where she met her future husband, Laurence Charles Schultz. Larry and Elaine were married on December 5, 1942 and had two children. In 1948, they moved to Miami Springs, Florida. Elaine worked for Grace Lutheran Church as the secretary while raising their two children. After a number of years at the church, she began working for Eastern Airlines in the in-flight services department in 1966 until she retired in 1981.

In 1981 they moved to Rockledge to be near their son's family. Elaine worked part-time for the Brevard County Supervisor of Elections Office in a Rockledge precinct during elections. She volunteered at a local senior center and became in charge of the travel desk. After her husband died, Elaine moved to the Carmel condominiums in 2003. At Carmel, she served on the condo Board of Directors for several years, including serving as an officer.
