Elaine was a long time Nicola Valley resident, moving from the Macdonald family ranch to Merritt in the early 1940’s to enable the Macdonald boys to attend school. In the mid 1980’s, Lenard and Elaine moved to White Rock until about a year and a half ago when she moved back home after the loss of her husband.
