  1. Elaine, there are no words that can express my feelings. May you rest in peace with Linda and Billy. I loved you all.

  2. So sorry to hear about the passing of Elaine. I have fond memories of her, Don, her sister and brother-in-law, Marilyn and Ted, visiting my husband and me and the laughter and memories shared at the various parties, cookouts and charades. She was an awesome hostess providing food and laughter for my bowling team when we were in Pueblo for a state tournament. I sincerely hope Elaine’s family and friends find peace and comfort in the memories she has left in your hearts. RIP, Elaine. You earned your rest.

  3. In behalf of the remainder of the members of Elaine’s Central High School’s class of 1955, we send our sympathy and condolences to her family and close friends for your loss. We share that loss. Elaine was one of our class members who pretty nearly everyone recognized in the Central High halls. She participated in our school government, cheered on our Wildcat athletes, helped us define ourselves through her contribution to the annual–the Cat Tales– and our newspaper–the Central High Times, and was one of those mates upon whom we could always depend. We bid farewell to Elaine, now one those ’55ers who have gone on before her, knowing that our turn lies not too far away. Thanks for your friendship, Elaine.

  4. Our sincerest condolences for you and your family during this sad time.
    I remember visiting Aunt Elaine (and Uncle Sonny) when we were kids and she would always have the best homemade cookies to share!
    Elaine was a wonderful person and will be missed by all of her family and friends.
