Raising her 3 boys (along with the rest of the Bleiblerville kids) was her biggest accomplishment. She loved watching her boys grow into men and become husbands and fathers to their own children. A women of faith, Elaine knew that God had a plan for her life and death and held close to that faith until the end.
