Memories Timeline


  1. I worked with Elaine several years and always enjoyed being with her.

    She was a good friend who would do anything asked of her and she always saw the good in people.

    She loved talking especially about her children Todd and Brooke.

    I haven’t seen Elaine since we worked together but asked about her often. I know she thought s lot of me as I did her.

    I especially thought of her each of her birthdays because I knew her and my mother shared March 4 as their birthdays.

    I will cherish the memories and my thoughts and prayers are with the family.

  2. So sorry prayers for the family we will sure miss her at Carlie C’s. We looked forward to seeing her everyday.

  3. Brook, Todd and families. It is with deepest condolences that I learn of Elaine’s passing. I pray for comfort for each of you during this time of loss and in the days to come. May God Bless each of you.

  4. Sympathy and Prayers 🙏 for all the family. Elaine was a good woman. Years ago we were neighbors. My heart is sad for Brook and Todd but happy for Elaine. She is in a much better place now. Elaine loved her family dearly. May God hold you especially close through this difficult time. Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are those who mourn; for they shall be comforted.”

  5. So sorry for your loss. Todd and Brooke and families will be in my prayers. May you find peace in knowing her love for her family. 🙏🏼🙏🏼

  6. i am so sorry for your loss. Elaine was always so appreciative of everything in life she worked hard and loved her family. When my mother became homebound she would come and visit and talked of olden days. They shared family and knew alot of the same people but most of all they cherished their friendship. Elaine was my Dad Worthy Garner’s cousin they didn’t have much growing up but they knew and shared a lot of memories. Elaine never forgot family as she showed through her visits to both my parents until their death. God be with the family

  7. So sorry about your loss. Prayers to you all & sending all of my love. So thankful I had the pleasure of meeting Elaine & having a Pepsi with her. Such a sweet woman who is no longer hurting.
