She was preceded in death by her parents, John and Celeste Myles.

To the Family of Elaine, Your Mother was a Godly woman, full of Faith and Devotion, especially to her family. Our work allowed us to have a Monday Morning Prayer Call every week and Elaine was always sure to be on each call. She was always Praying for her family and those that needed Prayer in the world for whatever the reason may have been. Our Prayers were for Elaine when she was no longer able to participate, rest assured she is now in Paradise Praying over all of you, her family, in God's Church Triumphant. How fitting that she was taken to Heaven on Ascension Day of our Lord Jesus Christ. May God's Peace that surpasses all understanding be with you all in your days ahead. Fly high Elaine, God's Faithful Servant!
