Elaine spent her life in Wyoming, Utah and California. She married at seventeen to Melvin W. Rollins and after twenty-one years they were divorced. Married Arlin D. Fowler and always talked about how she was the luckiest woman in the world and when God made Arlin he broke the mold. This marriage came with a ready-made family, her two and his five.
Elaine enjoyed genealogy, family and “boy”… could she sew. Elaine loved going to family reunions, seeing all the families coming together, laughing, sharing stories, moments and memories. Most of all she enjoyed spending time with all her grandkids and great-grandkids.
She was raised as a member of the L.D.S. faith, in which she was active throughout her life. Elaine served in many positions and teachings of the church.
In 1960 Arlin and Elaine were sealed for time and all eternity in the temple.
