Obituary for "Elaine" M. Reynolds-Westerman

Elaine, the second daughter of Iva (Donnelly) and Glen Martin was born January 24, 1924 on the family farm near Maiden Rock, WI. She passed away at the United Pioneer Home in Luck, WI on April 10, 2009. Elaine received her formal education at River Falls, WI, graduating with the class of 1941. She attended River Falls Teachers College for two years. In 1945 Elaine married Frank Reynolds and they moved to Blair, WI where their first daughter, Jo Anne was born. Two years later their daughter, Jackie was born and son, Frank Thomas (aka Tom) was born after the family had moved back to the Milltown area. Elaine was employed by the St. Croix Hospital for more than 30 years, beginning at the Milltown Clinic in the late 1950’s and at the St. Croix Medical Center until 1986. She was active in the Milltown Womens’ Club and the American Legion Womens’ Auxiliary. She spent many volunteer hours with charity drives, Veterans’ Day “poppy sales”, and bingo party benefits. In 2004, Elaine was recognized for her dedication to the community spirit and was the Grand Marshall of the Fishermans’ Party events. In 1980, Frank and Elaine purchased a home in Harlingen, TX where they planned to be “winter snowbirds” when Frank retired. Unfortunately, Frank passed away in 1982. In 1988 Elaine married Dick Westerman at the West Denmark Church. Elaine and Dick wintered in Texas and spent summers at their Milltown residence until the mid-90’s. In 2007, ill health required Elaine to move to the United Pioneer Home in Luck. She passed away peacefully with her family by her side. Elaine was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Frank; one brother; one sister; and step-daughter, Cynthia. She is survived by husband, Dick Westerman; daughters, Jo Anne (Dennis) Carlson and Jackie Reynolds; son, Tom (Lisa) Reynolds; step-daughters, Carol (Bill) Irish, Connie (Corky) Groniger, Chris Wells (friend, Jim), Cory Schirla; 19 grandchildren; and 29 great-grandchildren.
