Date of Death: May 29, 2017

Date of Birth: November 29, 1949


BRUNSWICK - Elaine Parker was born on November 29, 1949 and died on May 29th, Memorial Day, 2017.

She is the daughter of Helen Re and William (Bill) Parker and married to the late Robert Earl Minter.

She is survived by two children, Salena and Michael Minter of New York, and granddaughters, Aradia and Sashi Bigelow. Elaine had a third child, a son that was adopted at birth in 1965 in Fort Lauderdale Fla.

Ms. Parker graduated St. Thomas Aquinas High School in 1968 and was a student of life consummating her degree upon her death.

She completed the Master Gardening Program through Cornell Cooperative Extension in Hudson valley NY and was a volunteer at the Vanderbilt Gardens in Hyde Park NY and a volunteer at the Brunswick Library in Maine.

Elaine was an eclectic personality. She had a passion for the ocean, gardening, felines, flea markets and genealogy. She loved a good coastal storm and was starting to pursue herbalism and whole foods in her later years. Anybody that took the time to know her would find that she was harder than a walnut to crack but full of goodness inside.
