So sad to learn of Elaineâ€™s death. We spend most of the time I knew her, playing tennis at her court or the Helena Country Club court. Elaine & Johnnie Carnathan weâ€™re the best women tennis players in town. It was always a pleasure to have her join our ladies day tennis games on Wed. Elaine & Jim were always welcome to my home. They were so friendly and engaging, My children attended school with Robin & Marty. Scott was married with children so we never met him. My thoughts are with Robin, his wife & their handsome sons. Mary Ann, Lance, Stewart & Becky
We send Robin and his family condolences on the loss of his mother and the previous loss of his father. His parents always extended hospitality to visiting children in their home. May family memories be a source of comfort.
Prayers for your family. Elaine was a very special person and I know she will be greatly missed.

Ms. Frazier was a warm, compassionate and generous lady who I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity of working with for three years. The love she showed daily toward her family and community was immeasurable. She and Mr. Frazier were pillars in our community and will be missed for many years to come. Praying for God's comfort and love for her family during this time. May she rest in peace.
