Elener retired from Maybelline Corp after thirty years, then volunteered at St. Vincent Medical Center for fourteen years. She and her husband have been members of Apostolic Church for over fifty-five years. She loved her flowers, specifically yellow roses. She collected nutcrackers, books and her favorite, frogs. This time of year was her favorite as she loved to walk the daffodil fields and watch the flowers bloom. She loved cruises, sunset boat rides on Lake Ouachita, and spending her winters soaking up the Florida sunshine. Her love for travel made her ready at the drop of a hat, especially if someone said, “Branson?” But above all else, her favorite times were spent surrounded by the ones she loved the most.
