She and her late husband Jerry (July 29, 1933 – April 28, 2018) loved camping, motorcycling, canoeing, and snowmobiling. The McFarland community will remember Jerry and Elaine as very avid McFarland walkers.

She is survived by her children: Mike (Karen) Burns and David Burns of McFarland; grandchildren: Cari McPherson of Rio, Wisconsin, Stephanie Landphier, of Wyocena, Wisconsin, & Randy Burns of Wyocena, Wisconsin; and four great grandchildren: Taylor, Marissa, Chet & Cayden.

Elaine was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Jerry Burns; sister, Marie (Harold) Thompson of Harlingen, Texas and sister-in-law Peg (Bob) Thurner of McFarland.
