I loved this dear lady and loved teaching 1st grade at Reeds Spring with her. She had such high standards and mentored me in so many ways.

Dave, Russ and family. Our hearts are so sad to hear about Elna's passing. Elna was a dear friend of many years and we have cherished memories of wonderful times together. She was there for you with a beautiful smile, a listening ear, a compassionate heart and words of encouragement. A wonderful prayer warrior you could count on. Elna was the kind of friend that is rare in life and she will be missed and remembered forever and always by those she touched with her kindness, good food, love, generous spirit and true friendship. We will meet again. Love, Vera and Herb Cage
