Elaine Faye was born Aug. 27, 1928 to Robert and Alice (Seip) Elmore on their farm in Verona Township. She was one of ten children. She attended country school through the eighth grade and then continued her education on the farm, helping her parents wherever needed.
She later moved to Blue Earth where she worked for JC Penney for many years as a retail clerk and often assisted in dressing and designing the mannequins in the storefront window. In her spare time, she was an avid bowler and golfer. She even has a plaque on the bowling alley’s “Hall of Fame.” She also enjoyed flowers and gardening. She was a long-time member of the Methodist Church and at the age of 80, she went on a mission trip to Jamaica and parasailed! She had a deep love for cats and always had several but her deepest love was for all her nieces and nephews. Each one of them holds a special place in her heart.
Elaine has left an everlasting imprint on all that survive her; siblings Lorraine Chaffee, Beverly Alfson, Joyce Farrow, Janice DeBoer and Luverne Elmore, her sister-in-law Marge Elmore, as well as her many cherished nieces, nephews, other extended family and friends.
She is preceded in death by her parents; her brothers, Donald, Mervin and Maurice; and her sister, Charlotte Robb.
