I offer my sincere condolences to Elaine’s family and close friends on her passing. I knew Elaine through my late husband Jim Dawe from the Computer Science Department at MUN. Although I haven’t seen Elaine in many years, we always kept in touch at Christmas time. I remember her fondly from that time and Jim always thought highly of her. I will think of her as time marches on. God bless and may she rest in peace.

I am so sorry to learn, just now, of Elaine’s passing back in July 2022. I knew Elaine from MUN. I met her when we all worked in various Departments in the old Temporary Buildings. I remember her friendly disposition and her kindness to my late brother-in-law, a professor in Computer Science, who had diabetes. I can still see her rushing past my office on her way to the Breezeway Cafeteria in the Chemistry Building to get him a juice because his blood sugar had dropped dangerously low. I didn’t know her well, but she was a person who was not easily forgotten. My sincere condolences to all her family and friends. Elaine, may you rest in peace, and may your memory be a blessing.

Keith and Lorne

I was a part-time worker in Computer Science – in the 70’s and Elaine was ‘my boss’ – – she was a “sweetie”.
Please accept my condolence – I was so sorry to read of her death at such a young age.

Keith, Lorne and Lyndon – I was so sorry to hear about Elaine’s passing. I so enjoyed getting to know Elaine again at MUNPa Crafts the last few years. We had some wonderful chats. Years ago she gave Dad a wooden sea gull that she made – I now have it had my cabin and I think about her when I look at it. She was a wonderful person and will certainly be missed. Keep all your wonderful memories close.

Deepest condolences on Elaine passing. I remember her from my university years in the mid-70’s. We connected when we discovered that my dad (James Squires of Ambrose) and her mom (Doris) were cousins from St. Philip’s. .

So sorry to hear of Elaine’s passing.. We worked together for about 25 years. Such a nice person. She will be missed.

Spending time with the Boone family over several special events, we know how precious Elaine was to you all. She will be deeply missed and always treasured. Keeping you all in our thoughts at this sad time.

Our sincere condolences on your loss of this very special, beautiful person. Elaine’s big smile and laugh were matched by her big heart. We remember fondly times spent together, especially our many Wednesday evenings at Elaine’s in the late 70’s and 80’s when the ‘gang’ would gather and enjoy just spending time together. Her crafting skills were amazing and she happily shared her love of making beautiful things – she even had the patience to teach me how to knit!
She treasured her family and friends,, May your treasured memories now keep her always close in your heart and ease your loss.

Keeping all of you in our thoughts and prayers
