The entire Showalter family is saddened to hear of Elaine's passing. Our heartfelt condolences to Elaine's family.

Elaine was such a lovely soul. She worked for my Dad and my Uncle who operated Sanford S. Gooding Printing. Elaine always greeted everyone with a smile and a truly pleasant personality. She was always helpful to me whenever I needed anything... The pestering over the years by all of the Showalter children who would pop into the plant never seemed to bother her.

The best story she ever told me was when a salesman came into the shop one day, asking to speak to Sanford Gooding... and she said he was not at the shop, but she gave him directions to where he was. When the salesman
...followed the directions, he ended up at Cold Springs Cemetery. He came back to the shop later that day, hat in hand, and asked Elaine who he should talk to. She always loved that story.

Thank you for being such a great part of our lives.

Elaine was a special part of our lives. Her stories of Lockport and the days of Packet boats on the canal will never be forgotten. Elaine’s mom living to a 100. Elaine and Frank’s trailering around Western New York. We are thankful for Elaine and Frank being part of our lives!

My deepest sympathies on the loss of your Mom/Grandmother~I have had the pleasure of taking care of Elaine at Mills Jewelers for many years. I considered her to be a dear friend. She would brighten our days with her beautiful smile and joyful spirit. She will be sadly missed. Heaven has certainly gained a beautiful angel.
