She is also pre­ceded in death by her husband John Wil­liam El­more Sr.; her son, John Wil­liam El­more Jr.; three broth­ers, Joseph Wells, Franklin

She was born in Din­wid­die (Suther­land) Vir­ginia and grew up with her broth­ers and sis­ter in a farm­ing com­mu­nity. She lived a sim­ple clean life where noth­ing was more im­por­tant to her than her fam­ily and her church. She at­tended Ocran United Methodist Church her en­tire life be­gin­ning as an in­fant and be­com­ing a mem­ber as a young child. Mom loved to sur­round her­self with col­or­ful things that re­minded her of days on the farm and the sea­sons of the year, she cel­e­brated each sea­son and special oc­ca­sion with a pur­pose. She loved fresh veg­eta­bles from the gar­den, straw­berry cake in the spring and fruit­cake at Christ­mas, if she said it once she said it a thou­sand times “Vir­ginia is the gar­den spot of the world and I never want to live any­where else”. She lived a long full life and felt com­pas­sion for all peo­ple she dearly loved her fam­ily and her ex­tended church fam­ily. Special thanks to Ocran Church for their fel­low­ship and heart felt mes­sage of prayer, mom cher­ished the time she spent with her church fam­ily. Also Special thanks to Care Ad­van­tage for the pro­fes­sional ser­vice that they pro­vided our mother, they were truly com­pas­sion­ate and al­ways knew what to do to make mom as com­fort­able as pos­si­ble, for that we will be for­ever grate­ful.
