Summers were spent boating on Lake Erie with family and friends always included.

She enjoyed gardening that was sparked by her Dad at a very early age. She and her husband owned and operated Toledo Elevator for many years. In 1977, Elaine opened Talls of Toledo, a ladies tall clothing store out of a need for herself, her daughters and the area. Over the 22 years the store was open, many great "tall" relationships and friends were made. Elaine was a longtime member of Christ the King Church. She volunteered often and was an active member of the Over Fifty Group. She is survived by her loving children, David (Linda) Walz, Karen Connell, and Judith (James) Cook, 7 grandchildren, 3 step-grandchildren, numerous great-grandchildren and 1 great-great grandchild. She was preceded in death by her husband Emil Kenneth Walz.
