  3. Elaine was a life long best friend of our family. My fondest memories from earliest child hood to adult are visiting the Lawton’s house, sitting talking with Elaine about everything imaginable, eating her lovely meals and laughing. Elaine was always kind and generous, she was smart and a talented, creative, caring person. We will miss her always. Love Jono and the Ward Family

  4. My dear Grandma Elaine,
    Thank you for being such a wonderful and inspirational influence in my life. Your love and support has been so greatly appreciated for the past 36 years. I wish, more than anything, that you go to meet Maggie Elaine.
    I treasure all the time we were able to spend together and am sorry I could not be there to help you in your final chapter. You are much loved.

    All our love, Jess, Will and Maggie xxx

  5. Long road trips to Mildura were always worth it to see you and Uncle Ted. I have so many happy memories of those visits. I’ll miss your beautiful smile and sharing a crossword. I hope you and Uncle Ted are having a wonderful catch up. Love to all of the family.
