Meridian, Idaho – Elaine Kofoed was born in Weston, ID. She was the fifth of nine children. In 1944 she graduated from Weston High School and in the same year, moved with her parents and four of her siblings to Payette.

Elaine was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She enjoyed being a Homemaker. One of the happiest times in her life was every time she held a new baby her arms. She loved each and every one of them
One of Elaine’s passions in life was to go fishing and camping with Louis in their R.V. They also enjoyed traveling to England, Ireland, Scotland, Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii and Alaska.
