Lyndall and Michelle, I am so sorry for you loss. I am the daughter of Clifford and Betty Elston. My dad Clifford was Malee Cunningham's nephew. My mother Betty was Marvin Cunningham's niece. As you can imagine, we were with Elmyrta a lot over the years. She made the most magnificent angel food cakes - from scratch. I will never forget her. Oh, and my husband Dean Humphrey grew up right across the street from Marvin and Malee, and Elmyrta. Her loss is another one of Heaven's gains. We will miss her very much. All my love to you all and your families.
