Elaine enjoyed and loved growing flowers in her garden. Every seed came up that she planted. She cooked many meals for her family and friends. She was a wonderful cook. If she had a nickel for every piece of fried chicken she cooked, she'd be a rich woman. She also made the most delicious angel food cakes from scratch. She loved to bake.

Elaine is survived by her son, Gary (Donna) of Pleasanton; daughters, Marcia (Steve) Kuta of Omaha and Donna Gancos of Kearney; 10 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
