Elaine loved to make wedding cakes, birthday cakes, and wedding dresses. She made majorette uniforms too. Elaine was in Mary Kay Cosmetics for 50 years as a Consultant/Director. She won 3 cars including a pink regal, of which she was the proudest. She loved making women beautiful. Elaine was a member of the Masontown Methodist Church where she loved being a teacher of small children and pulling taffy with the youth group. She loved baking cakes and bragging that she carried those cakes in the trunk of her car and that they always made it there safely.


Elaine was a wonderful mother, grandmother, and friend to anyone that would talk to her.
