Elaine also worked part-time for Nelson’s Hallmark shop in Minneapolis and later, Myron’s Hallmark shop in St. Cloud. Elaine was a quiet person, but very pleasant and took everything that came her way. Elaine was known for her patience and independence. She loved to travel, play cards, bingo, go to the casino, and loved her grandkids very much. She was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church and belonged to the Altar Guild and was also a member of the East Side VFW Ladies Auxiliary.

Survivors include her daughter, Traci (David) Schuneman of Rice; son, Tony (Shelly) Dollar of Albertville; grandchildren, Justin (Ally), Bradley, Whitney, and Kenzie (Zach); great-grandchildren, Kyra and Noah; and sister, Ruth Reber of Sauk Rapids.
