Elaine Magie

February 21, 1926 to March 25, 2021

Elaine Magie, 95, went to see Jesus peacefully March 25, 2021.

She fought the degrading battle of dementia for many years. Elaine was born on Feb 21, 1926 to Gary Cecil and Edna Doris Brown and raised in Great Bend, Kansas.

Elaine could accomplish anything she could set her mind to. She acquired her Bachelor’s Degree in Home Economics at KSU (Kansas State University) and started her teaching career, in a one room school house in Kansas. She lived on a wheat farm in Great Bend, Kansas while being a hard working wife and mother of three children. In 1964 she moved to West Covina, California with her family. Elaine started teaching with Azusa Unified School District while raising her three children and putting herself through additional schooling. She attended Azusa Pacific and CSU (Cal State) where she earned her visually handicapped and special education certificates. She taught from 1964 to 1997 and then was a substitute teacher for about three years. She loved her students and it was very hard for her to retire. She touched many people’s hearts along her journey.

Elaine was an active member of The Community Presbyterian Church in West Covina, California for over 50 years. She enjoyed line dancing, antiquing, socializing, church activities, silver sneakers, and had a love for all animals.

She is survived by her three children Randy, Shelene, and Diane; three grandchildren Jason, Tanya, and Malena; four great grandchildren.

At her request no services will be held.
