Born March 2, 1946 in New York City, NY, eldest child of three. She grew up in Alaska and Jacksonville, Fl. Elaine graduated in 1964 from Northwestern Senior High School in Jacksonville, FL. where she played basketball .
Later she moved and settled in San Diego in approximately 1967, where she gave birth to her only child, Ronald Evans in 1970.
Elaine worked for UCSD Medical Center as a dietitian for thirty-two years, when she retired in 2006.
Growing up, she was protective of her younger brothers and wouldn’t hesitate to wrestle them if needed to keep them in line. As a little girl, Elaine would spend her summers traveling to her Homer, LA to spend time with her granddad.
Elaine enjoyed family dinners, baking special cakes for her grandkids, going out for her birthday, spending all the holidays with her family and attending her many family reunions. Her highlights were seeing her son Ron get married and start a family. Attending the college graduation of her granddaughter Julica. Watching her granddaughter Mikaila swim competitively and hanging with her grandson LaRon, who kept her busy and on her toes with his many mischievous ways.
She was a simple woman, who kept to herself and maintained a small circle of friends. Towards the end of this journey, that friendship was called to test with the health care assistant from her dear friend Diane Hayes.
Elaine spent her final Thanksgiving surrounded by her kids, grandkids, and great-grandkids before being called home on November 26, 2018 with her son by her side.
