Our deepest condolences to Grandma Buck’s family. We only got the pleasure of knowing her for a few years but she was always so pleasant to be around. She loved to tell stories of her family as they meant the world to her. Our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Babe was my Mother's baby sister, and I was raised only knowing her as "Babe", not Elain. Every summer my family would drive to Niagara for a vacation at "Babe & Bucks" house. Every morning we would all sit around the kitchen table and listen to the stories of my Mother and Babe growing up, same stories every vacation and the the laughter that would only get greater every story and every year. Babe's laugh is something I will never forget, it was so very contagious. She was always so much fun to be around, always happy and fun. I will keep all those memories in my heart and the sound of her laughter will ALWAYs bring a smile to my face. Love you Babe, you will be missed.

I only knew Elaine as Babe my mother's youngest sister. I loved her, I love being around her, her laugh was so contagious and you couldn't help but laugh with her when a story was being told. The Summers we spent up in Niagara Wisconsin were the best of my life I'll never forget her or the memories she has left with in. I will miss and love you always Babe. Your loving niece, Patti.
