After graduating from St. Mary’s High School, Elaine worked for Bell Canada as a switchboard operator, progressing to training new employees. Tom and Elaine married in July 1957. A year later she stayed home to raise her family. Provincial parks were summer rituals for the family. There were many wonderful times up north. Years later, Elaine took a part time job at The Keyman, where she found her best friends, the 5 “Keyladies” Tom and Elaine loved to travel to Acapulco, Mexico, in the winter and have had many fun times there with friends. Next stop, the Pearly Gates of Heaven, and right there is her best friend Connie to welcome Elaine. The journey continues!
Special thanks to the wonderful, compassionate, and tireless staff at Hewson House. You are all very appreciated by Elaine and her family.
