She enjoyed watching wildlife & butterflies, gardening in her backyard with her butterfly bushes and flowers around her Koi Pond, sewing that she passed to her children, buck dancing and doing word puzzles. She was truly a unique woman that will be deeply missed.

    I am praying for the family. Erelene was a very feisty lady indeed. I got the pleasure of working with her at Walmart. She was a shoulder to me when I need it. She is gone on to heaven but I know her spirit will be with us always.
