Stoub, Elaine

10/6/1942 – 4/1/2023

Elaine had life she still wanted to live, but died at peace in her home. “Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skip in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and proclaiming’wow, what a ride!'” These were the words mom lived by, when we say lived by, we mean LIVED by. The lives she loved and poured herself into were greater than the number of her family. Her presence, love for life and family will be deeply missed.

Per her wishes cremation has taken place. A memorial service is being planned and details will be announced as soon as they become available.

Cremation arrangements are entrusted to Michigan Cremation & Funeral Care, Grand Rapids, 616-452-3006.
