Travel of any kind to any place was perhaps her happiest times. Thanks to Joel’s business travel, she explored many countries in addition to planned family travel. Her favorite countries were Belgium, Hollan and Thailand.

She would try anything on trips including white water rafting hot air balloons, and other fun events. The most unusual experience was a guided tour of the Norad™ facility to Cheyenne mountain in Colorado Springs.

Elaine also enjoyed participating in all the children’s clubs and activities, such as baseball, soccer, scouts church activities and more.

Church played a big role in both Elaine’s and Joel’s life. Our families attended the same Lutheran church in Port Arthur, Texas. There were a variety of church sponsored events including sports, weekly Sunday evening youth meetings and occasional trips.

The church involvement continued as our family grew.

Joel and Elaine started “going steady” when she was in the 10th grade at Port Neches High School.

Elaine is preceded by her father (Bob Kelsey), mother-in-law (Mary Lou Latimer), and brother-in-law (Jimmy Latiolais).

Surviving Elaine are her mother (Ruby Kelsey), Husband (Joel Langhoff), sister (Connie Latiolais), sons (Bradley and Robert), and daughter (Kendyl). Elaine also treasures 6 granddaughters, one grandson, one great granddaughter, and one great grandson.
