Elaine Zwagerman, age 66, passed away on January 24, 2018 after a courageous battle with cancer.

Elaine was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. She deeply loved her husband, children, and grandchildren and prayed for them regularly. Elaine was instrumental in helping run the family dairy farm and worked various part-time jobs in the community throughout her life. She was committed to her church, singing in the choir, and studying the Bible with fellow believers. She was heavily engaged in the community and used her talents and time to assist others. She looked forward to her weekly time with the Crazy Ladies Quilting Circle and sewed often for Love Sews. She was ALWAYS on the go and up to something good! She will be missed by many.
