Elaine Marie Young, 76, of Martinsville, left this earthly life on Thursday, May 27, 2021 in the comfort of her own home. She was born in Ashland, Wisconsin on April 25, 1945 to the late Edwin and Alice (Stone) Reiten.

The greatest joy of her life was her family. She was an exceptional mother and she relished time spent with her children, grandchildren, and the rest of her family. She also enjoyed shopping.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Edwin and Alice and sister, Joyce Rooker.
