  5. Stan, I am sorry for your loss.
    I first met Elaine and her daughters when you invited me on a sailboat trip on Lake Huron. Elaine was a gracious and fun loving hostess. I will remember her that way. Always.

  6. Stan, Diane, Robin and grandchildren,
    My heart goes out to you dear family in the loss of your wife, mom, and grandmother. May you feel the comfort of family and friends and most of all our Heavenly Father. Love, hugs and my sympathy! Bonnie Gerst

  7. Dearest Dianne, Robin, Stan and family,
    My deepest condolences on the loss of your sweet Elaine. I will always treasure the voluminous fond memories of growing up as a part of your extended family which sprouted out of Dianne and I being jr. high classmates and blossomed into a life-long friendship with a multitude of experiences ranging from outdoor adventures such as midnight snowmobiling somewhere ‘up north’, sailing the north channel and seeing the awesome aurora borealis / northern lights, to taking turns at the wheel in the Winnebago on a treck down to Florida, to visit the grandparents and sail on to Captiva Island. Elaine always made us laugh and Stan was always well organized with the ever-present “hot setup” — the perfect combo! There were also many simple local fun experiences growing up with Robin and Dianne — such as baking yummy home-made chocolate chip cookies and delicious open-faced mini-rueben sandwiches to Dianne and I testing the boundaries of adolescence. (Never anything illegal of course!) Equal to my appreciation of your family’s generousity has always been my admiration and awe in having watched Robin, Elaine and Dianne excel in historically male dominated activities and careers… soccer, bank management and marine biology. I could go on and on….
    Thank you Elaine, as the heart of the family, for the many wonderful fun and inspirational experiences that you allowed me / us to be a part of. I’ve carried those memories fondly, living at a geographical distance these past few decades — but they will continue to be carried close, and beat within my heart. May God bless you and your family.
    Love always, Terri 💖🌷

  8. Robin and family-What a beautiful blessing your mom was to all who knew or loved her.
    May your faith bring you peace to know that your lovely mom is at the rally in heaven where Jesus is on the throne!

  9. Elaine’s sweet smile and gracious demeanor made a person feel special and loved. I will miss her and am comforted at the thought of meeting again in the presence of our Lord and Savior Jesus. My sympathy to Stan and all her family.
    Elaine Wieland
