|Let the memory of Elaine be with us forever|
Elaine Marie Wirth of Clearwater passed away at age 69 at 7:57pm on March 9, 2016. She faced many challenges and life changes over the last eight years since being diagnosed with COPD however anyone who met her would have never known the extent of her struggles. Elaine was always kind-hearted, even tempered, and caring; traits that she brought forward in life from her previous home healthcare nursing career. She will fondly be remembered as a strong-willed, loving mother and is survived by her 4 children, Derek, Brian, Steven, and Dawn; 4 grandchildren, Sara, Cody, Lauren, and Matthew; her brother Jim and his wife Mary; along with 3 nieces and one nephew. She was predeceased by her younger brother Paul, a US Marine killed in action in Viet Nam. There will be no services held, as those closest to her know she wouldn’t want any fuss over her peaceful passing.
This memorial website was created for you all to share your happy memories, she would never want to cause any pain or sorrow. Smile when you think of her.
"A whole year has gone by...I never realized how often things happen in life that I just couldn't wait to tell her about until she wasn't there for me to tell anymore. One of my most recent favorite memories, although I have MANY, was on Christmas when I got her drunk and all of a sudden everything was hilarious...she couldn't stop laughing that hard deep belly, make ya cry, genuine laugh! I took a picture of her at that moment and it makes me smile. There are so many "I wish" statements I could leave here in sorrow but I'll just remind myself and anyone reading that should wouldn't want us to be sad. She's finally able to breathe easy after 8 long years of struggle. She told us kids that she didn't want to live past 70 because it sucks not to be able to breathe. She made sure she left us on her own terms, and I'm proud of her for being able to make that decision. I'll love her forever."
"I have so many great memories of you. I miss you and think of you every day. I know you're happy and you are watching over your family and my family. Love you!!!! <3 <3"

"So many wonderful memories of your sweet Momma!! She always felt more like a mom when we were younger and not just my best friends mom. She welcomed me for endless sleepovers and always stood up for us. Most recently we had a mutual love for The Chew and Candy Crush with those "impossible" levels"

"You were always such a big part of our lives, especially Moms. You and her get to hang out again, which makes me so happy. I can see it now, by the pool, smoking and drinking Kahlua! I can also hear you whistling for Rebel!!!! That whistle would make us all stop in our tracks!! I am glad you're at peace reconnecting with so many. I Love You Always....until we meet again!! XOXO"

"Elaine you were a special soul and an enlightened spirit. You had that spark of fire in you that spew forth warmth to any who were fortunate to come across your path. There was a sparkle in your laugh that tiptoed into our hearts. Life is much richer for the many who are grateful for experiencing your magnetic life. Thank you for the moments in time ~ Peter"
