Elaine, like her husband and children, was a unique woman and well ahead of her time. She had four children while married to Jack, and raised them often on her own since Jack was committed to his business and earning enough to support them all. Their marriage was tempestuous and ended in divorce in 1968 after the children were grown. Elaine began a successful career in real estate, and grew truly independent. Elaine sadly passed away in 2003.
