Elaine was born in Lisbon on Aug. 21, 1929, to Harold Haskins and Madolyn Moulton Haskins. She grew up on the family farm from which she sometimes walked the mile and a half to Salmon Hole School. She attended Lisbon High School and graduated valedictorian. She has enjoyed going to many class reunions over the years.

Elaine married the love of her life, Glenwood Franklin Aldrich, on Dec. 12, 1947. She was predeceased by him on Jan. 20, 1986. Every day, since the previous November she sat with him at the North Country Rehab Center. During her many years without him, her passions were sewing, knitting, cooking, crossword puzzles, reading, and getting all the local news in the Littleton Courier and Manchester Union Leader. She continued to enjoy and appreciate her extended family and deepened lifelong friendships. Her knitting was of the utmost professional, handcrafted quality. Afghans, sweaters, vests and baby blankets were prized by her family, her friends, the North Country Knitting Coop, and, in the end, by caregivers at Golden Crest.

Elaine worked at both Connors and Hoffman shoe shop in Littleton and Henschel's in Lisbon. For a short while she was employed at the New England Wire Mill in Lisbon.
