Elaine Margaret Dunst
3/23/1916 – 6/26/2014
Elaine Margaret Dunst was born in Eyota Township, Minnesota on March 23, 1916. When Elaine was in high school she moved to Phoenix, Arizona to live with her sister. It was there that she met Frank Dunst, the handsome boy across the street. A 75 year love story began. Frank and Elaine were married on October 23, 1940. They were blessed with two children, Larry and Karen. When Frank returned home from WWII they moved their family to California, where Frank began his pharmacy career. In 1948 Frank and Elaine bought Clough’s Pharmacy, in Fillmore, California. It was a family owned and operated business until 1994.
Frank and Elaine loved to dance. Elaine often said she married Frank because he was a good dancer! They were members of the Valley Star Dancers, square dance club. Frank and Elaine also enjoyed traveling. They went on many adventures while traveling around the world together. Elaine always supported her Catholic family and church. She even surprised her family by becoming Catholic four and a half months before she died. She thought it was pretty special that her great grandson Dylan was her Godfather.
Elaine is preceded in death by her beloved husband Frank, and grand-daughter Nancy Dunst.
Elaine is survived by her children Frank Lawrence (Judy) Dunst, and Karen Dunst-Hawkins, her grandchildren, Kari (Gordon) Hawkins-Wilson, Kristen Dunst, Scott ( Kelly ) Dunst, and Ashley (William) Foster, her great grandchildren Dylan and Emma Dunst and Jeremiah and Malakai Foster.
A special Thank- You to Elaine’s caregivers and support staff, Rita, Kelly, Cecelia (CeeCee), Theresa, Maria, Nicole, and Elyid. Your tender loving care means more than words can ever say. You were more than caregivers, you became family.
