Elaine M. Larsen

Elaine M. Larsen, 76, of Kennedy, N.Y., gained her wings with family by her side Sunday, Feb. 10, 2019, after a battle with breast cancer.

Elaine was married Feb. 7, 1959, to Lloyd W. Larsen of Steamburg, N.Y.

She enjoyed her gardens and planting wild flowers around the house.

Elaine was a loving mother, not just to her own sons but the entire family.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Tracey and Francis Waite; a son, Brian Larsen; and four brothers and five sisters.

Elaine is survived by her husband of 60 years, Lloyd W. Larsen: sons Darrell (Diane) Waite of West Palm Beach, Fla., and Joshua Larsen of Kennedy, N.Y.; two granddaughters: and four great-granchildren.

Elaine would not want us to grieve, for she is with the lord and walking the streets of gold.
