Elaine was born on April 24, 1944 in Fort Wayne, Indiana to Jack “Doc” Edwards and Marjorie Marie Thurber. She graduated from South Side High School in 1962. She then attended Indiana University. While she was a student there, she met her husband Bill who was attending Purdue University. They were married in 1966. They later moved to Arlington to open their own business, Athletic Attic, in 1978. They opened several additional locations over the years before selling them in 1996. During that time Elaine was involved in Bible studies and played in a tennis league. Bill and Elaine retired to Athens, TX in 1998 to enjoy lake living. Elaine returned to Arlington in 2015 to be closer to family. During retirement, Elaine enjoyed many hobbies including golf, pickleball, canasta, and painting. She continued to participate in Bible study and book clubs.
Elaine’s most important accomplishment was her family. She always made special time to spend with each of her four grandchildren who were her pride and joy. She was blessed to meet her first great grandson before her passing.

Elaine was preceded in death by her parents and her beloved husband, Bill.

Survivors: Son, Dustin Schaller; daughter, Mandy Parker and husband, John; sisters, Marijo Koval, Susie Edwards, and Gwen Yeager; grandchildren, Audrey Shipley and husband, Hanner, Ellie Parker, Nolan Parker, and Macie Parker; great-grandchild, Parker Shipley; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Elaine was one of the most genuine and positive people you could ever meet. She always had a smile for you and when she would stop by the office, we would all happily flock out to talk with her. She was genuinely interested in how your life was going and would always take the time to talk to each of us in the office. Such a warm and caring person. We will all miss her dropping by and brightening our day. Wishing the family peace in knowing Elaine is in a better place, and comfort in all of the wonderful memories of a loving soul and a life well lived. You all are blessed to have a wonderful guardian angel! Rest in peace Elaine. We will miss you.

Jackie Rines :)
