Condolence & Memory Journal

A very belated message - I came upon Elaine's obituary as I was attempting to locate her after these many years. She was my first roommate at Fowler House, a hospital residence, at Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital. We shared a room in 1967/68. We remained friends for two more years, while I attended x-ray school at Hitchcock, but then I moved to California and we lost touch. Elaine & I enjoyed many adventures the year we were roommates - so sorry to learn of her passing. I knew her parents and we visited them often up in Wells River. My condolences to her remaining family. Cindy (Chase) DellaPenna, Hope, ME Apr. 12, 2020
