She was well known for her love of purple and was always seen wearing her signature color. Elaine enjoyed shopping both for herself and for others. Knitting was a lifelong hobby. She happily knit and donated hundreds of hats and scarves for people in need. Elaine will be remembered as kind and thoughtful and had a unique bond with each of her children and grandchildren.
