After retiring Elaine enjoyed baking cookies for the Elmira Community Kitchen. She was an avid knitter and took pride in knitting prayer shawls and blankets with the group “Made With Love”. Elaine always looked forward to casino trips with friends. She would make year round visits to Eldridge Park…..a place she found to be very peaceful.
