Special friend of Darlene and Dave Stockhausen.

A graduate of Langley High School in 1968, Elaine worked for the Untied Steel Workers Of America for 35 years.  After years of suffering, this strong, stubborn funny lady finally gained her wings.  Elaine fought to stay with her family as long as she could and she never gave up on the idea that her miracle was right around the corner.  Despite all the hardships she faced, she never lost her faith.  She loved her family more than anything else and loved hearing all the details of our lives.  We’ll miss her fighting spirit more than words can say, but we know she’s thrilled to see Pap again.  “We love and miss you nana”!

The family would like to extend there gratitude and thankfulness to the hospice nurses from the Allegheny Health Home Care staff; Jill, Darla, Brooke and Jennifer and also the staff from 4 North at Jefferson Hospital including Andrea, Kayla, Lindsey, Hannah and Makayla.

In lieu of flowers the family would appreciate Masses for Elaine.
