Elaine was born in Windsor, Ontario and was the second of 6 children to Gilbert and Emma Kinney. She is survived by her sisters, Teddi-May and Donna. Elaine was married for 61 years (in 1950) to James E. Willey and had two sons, James K. Willey (Paulette) and Robert Edward Willey (Debbie). She had five grandchildren, James R. (deceased), Susan Leaxmonth (Shane), Christopher Willey, Kevin Willey (Kayla), Brian Willey (Jamie); and four great-grandchildren, Braydon Willey, Haydon, Megan and Caitlin Leaxmonth.
After raising her sons, Elaine took a hairdressing course and loved to keep her hair looking lovely. She was very health conscious and exercised on her elliptical machine up into her late 80's to keep fit.
She also loved to play with her orange cat, Boo, and was able to take him to Elmcroft Assisted Living for 2 years. At Elmcroft, she enjoyed calling bingo and went to crafts, exercise and music with the great staff.
Elaine was so very grateful to her niece Jeanine Cordoba (Michael) for all they did for her.
She will be sadly missed by all who knew her.
