Obituary for Elaine Luella Styes

Elaine Luella Styes was born to deaf parents, Harry and Mary Friday, on March 30, 1929 in Troy Township, Michigan. She was the youngest of three daughters. Her sisters were May Booth and Loretta Hynes, both preceding her in death. She grew up in the Brightmoor area of Detroit and graduated from Redford High School.

Elaine married William John Styes Sr. (Bill), on August 27, 1946. Bill was in the US Navy during WWII, so Elaine traveled to California and the State of Washington as a military bride to be near to him. They enjoyed 51 1/2 years of married life until Bill passed in 1997.

Elaine and Bill had three children, William John Styes Jr. (deceased), Paula Strouss (Ron), and Laura Kelbaugh (Chuck). They had eight grandchildren who they loved, cared for and entertained, Jason Styes (Tammy), Jill Nichols, Tarra Pitcock (Derek), Luke Styes (Kim), Lisa Blackburn (John), Jesse Styes (Paula), Emily Dancer (Adam), and Allison Golden (Jeff). They had 11 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.

Elaine enjoyed being with family. Having close relationships was very important to her. Her sisters and their families were dear to her and her cousins were like sisters. They were always welcome in her home and everyone seemed to enjoy being there.

Elaine was a hard worker. When things got tough, she got stronger. She worked as a secretary for many years, ending her career at the age of 80.

Anyone who knew Elaine, knew she enjoyed life and had a great sense of humor. Even toward the end of her life she had the nurses laughing.

Elaine is now at peace with the Lord, whom she accepted as her Savior, and learned to trust through life’s peaks and valleys.Visitation will be held at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home, 404 E. Liberty St., Milford, on Monday, March 19, 2018 from 3-8 PM.
