Elaine Julia Adams Sweet passed away peacefully on January 4th, 2022, at the beautiful age of 86.
To know our mother was to love her and everyone did love her. Her bubbly optimistic
spirit was infectious, and she will be missed by all who were lucky enough to be graced by her presence.
Elaine was a native of Maine and fiercely proud of it! She often spoke fondly of her memories
there. Elaine was quite outspoken and never ceased to amaze us with her desire to speak the
truth (with or without profanity). Elaine has been referred to as “a hot ticket”, “a spitfire”, “the life of the party” and “a lovely
lady” and “a joy to be around”. She leaves behind her loving and incredible companion of 11 years, fondly known as Mr.
Bob. Elaine also leaves behind her three daughters, two sons-in-law, ten grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. Elaine was
proud of her family and left a legacy that mere words can never fully encompass. A celebration of Elaine’s life will take place in
the spring. In lieu of flowers, any donations to St. Jude’s would be welcome.
