Wittman, Elaine Bowers Born May 11, 1944 in Minneapolis, MN. Preceded in death by parents Ward and Edna, brother Chuck, beloved daughter KaiLi. Survived by children Matt, Libby and Tessa, son-in-law Willy, grandchildren Cora and Bud whom she adored, and so many friends too numerous to name. A proud graduate of Macalester College, Elaine was a teacher, married her friend Jim, and they moved to Indonesia where she fell in love with and adopted her first daughter, KaiLi. Elaine was a talented photographer and avid skier who guarded the slopes as ski patrol for many years. In 1984 Elaine took to the skies as a flight attendant, a career she enjoyed for 25 years. She was a world traveler and blessed her children by sharing the gift of travel and adventure. As a flight attendant, she met so many wonderful people and made lifelong friends into family. Every holiday there were always a few strays gathered at the fondue table. All were welcome in Elaine's home. If you were lucky enough to have known her, you knew you were family. We will always love you mom.
