1944 – 2024

With great sadness and gentle relief, the family of Elaine McCracken of St. Albert, AB announces her passing on February 28, 2024 at the age of 80 years following a lengthy battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

Elaine was a kind, compassionate lady who adored her family. She was a teacher by trade and worked for years in Early Childhood Development, first as a preschool teacher and progressed to the Director of St. Albert Daycare. Along this path, life long bonds with cherished friends were forged.  After moving to Vergreville, AB, Elaine opened a daycare in the hospital and later taught at Lakeland College.
