Elaine most recently had worked for John F. Murphy Homes before her retirement with the good people of Turner and Bradman streets.

On Feb. 17, 2002, she was blessed to meet her grandson, Leonard James Bradbury, whom she loved from the minute he was conceived. She was very proud of the young man he is, and she will forever be his Geboux Angel in heaven, watching over him.

Elaine enjoyed shopping, going out to eat, having company over to eat and her cats, who provided her with much comfort and company. Though she had a hard exterior, she had a heart of gold and has helped many people and animals in her life. There will never be another like her.
