What a legacy Elaine has lived and left behind! I have such fond memories growing up with her and all of you as our neighbors. Peonies, crab apples, games, jumping off the front porch into a pile of leaves, large gardens, rhubarb treats, and her kind neighborly heart. I send sincere condolences to you all knowing your great loss and yet heavens gain! Much love to you. Cathy

My sincere condolences to the entire Yunk Family. I have many fond memories of Elaine growing up right next door. We considered ourselves lucky if we were able to get a bouquet of Pink Peonies from Elaine! What a wonderful, long life lived!

Gary & Family: My condolences on your Mom passing. She was a wonderful lady. I remember hanging out many a day with Junior at the homestead on Railroad Street. Your Mom and Dad were always kind to me and the others guys in our clique. I'm sure your Dad, Karen and Junior have welcomed her into heaven. God Bless you and the entire Yunk family.

Elaine was very close to her children. I have a lot of good memories of visiting with her when Karen would take me along when she would go see her. One of the best times we had was when all the girlfriends rented a limo and took Elaine along with us on a casino run. Elaine Rest In Peace you were a truly exceptional mother. My condolences to the family.
