Obituary for Elaine M. Wedin
Elaine Marie Wedin, 76, of Grantsburg, WI, passed away on March 19, 2017 at Regions Hospital in St. Paul, Minnesota. She was born on May 24, 1940 in Orfordville, Wisconsin to Maxine and Donald Callaway.

Elaine graduated from Frederic High School and married the love of her life, Marlyn Wedin, the same year on November 9, 1957. This year would mark their 60th wedding anniversary. They were blessed with four children, Jeanine, Barb, Linnet and Vance. Elaine was a housewife and helped her husband with chores on the farm and with his milk hauling business.

She was a great cook and loved baking even more. Her favorite hobby of all was attending as many of her grandchildren's sporting events as possible, where she always sat in the front row and kept stats. She was very selfless and always put others ahead of herself.

Elaine was a strong believer in Jesus, and her love for Him showed through with the countless number of Bible studies she led with her many friends and most recently with her own grandchildren.

Elaine was preceded in death by her parents, Donald and Maxine Callaway and her brother, Donald Jr. (Buzz). She is survived by her husband of 59 years, Marlyn Wedin; her children, Jeanine (Dennis) Chell, Barbara (Richard) Thompson, Linnet (Arlen) Jensen, and Vance (Becky) Wedin; her sister, Beatrice (Mickey) Nelson; her grandchildren, Travis and Sasha Chell, Brenton (Trisha), Trevor, and Brady Thompson, Marissa, Hallie, and Dane Jensen, and Austin, Amber, and Alexis Wedin.

A Graveside Service will be held Wednesday, March 22, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. at the Riverside Cemetery in Grantsburg, Wisconsin according to her wishes and open to everyone.
