Elaine’s parents started Floral Arts in St. Joseph in 1968. As a 14-year old she was behind the counter making bouquets. Elaine became an immensely talented floral designer at Floral Arts, especially weddings. She could take the ideas of a bridal couple and turn them into floral beauty designed just for them. Valentines Day 2022 Elaine was able to be at the store, even in pain, she was giving directions to all. She so loved doing wedding work that she was bound and determined to make her last wedding flowers two weeks before she passed.
