Elrena had an excitement for garage sales, never drove past one, & never paid full price. Her passion for cooking was greatly appreciated by her family & she loved teaching the grandkids how to make some of her specialties. She treasured spending time up north at the lake with family. Her children & grandchildren meant the world to her. She will be greatly missed.
