Jay & Reed,
My deepest sympathy on the loss of your mother. She was indeed one of a kind. Dick depended on her to help keep things running on the straight & narrow at MVRBC. I know he really appreciated her work.

Everyone at MVRBC that knew Elaine shares your loss and sends their sympathy. I apologize that I cannot make her visitation on Sat. due to an unbreakable commitment. My thoughts of Elaine will always be dominated by how well she "handled" Dick Navota, and made all our lives easier by doing so. She is missed.
-- Dr. Louis Katz
So sorry to read of Elaine's death. Worked with her at the Rock Island Arsenal in 1952-1953. My husband and her fiance' was in service and we had many fun days where out bosses let us and other young girls off early in Summer so we could go to Galesburg swimming in afternoon! Also served at her wedding. She was a really nice fun person. Thelma Morris
