    I’m so sorry to hear about Elaine. She was a frequent visitor to the library and I always enjoyed seeing her and Marshall. They had so many interesting stories to share. Thinking of all of you at this difficult time.

  4. Janet Armstrong and Family says:

    Our thoughts and prayers are with Jolene, Robert and David as they prepare to honor Elaine and remember her life. I remember the warm welcome and support Elaine sowed us when we visited rhe States for Robert and Jolene’s wedding. We spent a lovely evening with her several years later sharing the warmth and comfort of her home. Again we were made to feel so welcome and shared stories and laughs. Many years later we enjoyed catching up at David’s wedding. I remember Elaine as a lady who loved her family and reached out to others with care and compassion.

    My deepest sympathy to Elaine’s family, I met Elaine sometime sfter she moved to Adams, I had the pleasure of getting to be her hairstylist for many years until I retired. Always remember the first words she’d say when arriving, Boy do I need you, when really she was always beautiful, she will be missed.

    Elaine was such a beautiful lady. I got to know her in the Mystery Book Club. We sure did have some wonderful conversations about our books. She was such a joyful lady to be with. My deepest sympathy to her family. Keeping you in my prayers.

  7. Sharon Rork says:

    Elaine was a longtime member of our Mystery Book Club and always contributed to the discussion group. She was an avid reader and often recommended books to the group, both mystery books and others.
    She also worked with me for years, helping to run the Adams County Angle Tree program, a program to provide Chrismas gifts to under priviledge children of Adams County.
    I appreciated her sense of humor and her willingness to find us a safe place to meet when our library meeting room was closed due to Covid 19. I shall miss her & her famous Christmas pretzels
