Elaine was born in Stevens Point on February 28, 1924, the daughter of Roman and Mamie (LeSavage) Miskowski. She attended local schools in Stevens Point and graduated from PJ Jacobs High School. On June 24, 1944 Elaine married August Francis Neises at St Peter's Catholic Church.
Elaine loved spending time with family and friends. Anytime she was holding a baby you would see the biggest smile on her face. Elaine loved to cook and sew. Her favorite book to read was any new cookbook. She enjoyed bingo and playing card games. Her evenings were spent watching game shows, and she rarely missed Lawrence Welk, but watching Brewer baseball topped them all.
Her love of music was always evident by the shine in her eyes and the tapping of her toes, even after dancing like she had in her prime became difficult.
She is survived by her daughter: Sandra Hendrickson, Portage; Son: James (Patricia) Neises, Mosinee; Brother: Jim (Irene) Miskowski, Stevens Point; Sister-in-law: Margaret "Dolly" Miskowski, Stevens Point; 7 grandchildren: Cari (Pete) O'Connor, Kenosha; Mari Jo Hendrickson, Marshall, MN; Connie Hendrickson, Waite Park, MN; AJ Hendrickson, St. Cloud, MN; Molly Neises, Mosinee; Angie Le (Josh) Polich, Camp LeJeune, NC; Kimberley (Brian) Mingus, Waterford; and 10 great grand children.
She was preceded in death by her husband of almost 50 years August, her brother Don Miskowski, and her parents.
