Elaine lived 2 doors down from our Mom at Cedar Crest. We are so very sorry for your loss. She will be dearly missed by her extended family at Cedar Crest. She was one of our favorite residents! She was always so upbeat and would cheer for the other residents when the "bowled" outside Elaine's door. We loved to talk "Brewers" together! We have so missed all the delightful people at CC during the Covid "lockdown". Lori Cunningham and Connie Isackson and Diane Neugebauer
