She was forever a beautiful guiding light and we will miss her so very much. We believe and know that she is in a far better place, smiling down on us with those very same beautiful, loving and caring eyes that radiated kindness, joy and hope to everyone that she came in contact with.

She was an amazing and unwavering example of love, generosity, humility, compassion and self sacrifice—always putting the needs of others ahead of her own. She never wavered in her faith in God, love of family and the golden rule. She leaves behind a beautiful and enduring legacy. Her life has truly blessed ours and we hope to carry on her extraordinary, life-long example. She definitely “walked the talk” and taught us that life is all about giving, serving and caring for others.

To honor Mom, we will be holding a celebration of life service at a future date. We want to thank each and every one of you for continued prayers and support at this time.

  1. We are saddened by these news as we were hoping that Elaine would recover. She is now safe and secure looking forward to eternity. For a few years we are given the opportunity to share the good things that God has given us with others. That is our privilege. May the love that guided and motivated Elaine to serve others also encourage all of us to follow her example.

    The Lord comfort your hearts and lift up your spirits.

    In Christ,
    Santiago and Elke
