Elayne M. LaFlame, age 89, died December 10, 2013, in Angola, Indiana.

Born April, 27, 1924, Elayne grew up in Chicago, Illinois and Montigue, Michigan. She and her late husband, Frank E. LaFlame, raised their family in Dayton, Ohio. After Frank retired from General Motors, they spent time traveling the United States in their RV. They also enjoyed their winters in Bonita Springs, Florida and summers at Clear Lake, Indiana. They loved having their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren visit them wherever they found themselves.

Elayne was a wonderful cook and seamstress and an avid reader. She and her husband enjoyed hosting their extended family at their home in Clear Lake, Indiana, particularly during the holidays. She enjoyed boating during the summer and snowmobiling in the winter. Elayne was still taking grandchildren and great-grandchildren for rides on her speedboat up until just a few years before her death.

Elayne is preceded in death by husband, Frank of 59 years; her parents, Espey Ami Harper and Florence Dorothy Crow Harper; daughter, Susan and son, John ("Jack"). She is survived by brother John Harper of West Palm Beach, Florida; daughter Vicki Biddinger (David) of Beverly Hills, Michigan; sons, Steve LaFlame (Michele) of Dayton, Ohio and Gregory LaFlame (Cindy) of North Canton, Ohio; nine grandchildren, fourteen great-grandchildren, many nieces and nephews and her faithful canine companion of 12 years, Nikki. The family wishes to thank Lori and Denny Fulton of Fremont, Indiana, who provided great friendship and loving care to Elayne during her latter years. We will miss her.

Funeral service for Elayne will be held on Saturday, December 14, 2013, at 10:00 am at St. Paul Catholic Church, 8780 E. 700 (Clear Lake), Fremont, Indiana 46737, with burial to follow at a later date at Calvary Cemetery in Dayton
