She worked for Huron Sands making the Manitoulin jams and chutneys well up into her late seventies before she retired. Her heart and soul was into the Tehkummah Hall where she volunteered her time. She punched lone hands for euchre and always could be called on to help makes lunches for functions at the hall. Her greatest love was her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved to have all her family together for special occasions. She also loved her flower gardens, and this gave her great pride showing them off to people. Elaine’s other great pride she had was her two cats, Tinker and Angel. Family and friends will gather at the Tehkummah Hall on Thursday, March 19, 2015 from 2 pm to 4 pm and 7 pm to 9 pm.
