Elaine V. Coleman, 98 of Watertown (formally of Jefferson) passed away peacefully on Saturday, September 23, 2017 at Marquardt Health Center of Watertown.
Elaine was born on September 22, 1919 in Milwaukee, WI, the daughter of Carl and Myrtle (Hake) Johnson. She grew in the Jefferson area. The Hake’s were early settlers in the area and Elaine was proud of her heritage. Elaine was blessed with a long life and was excited to be a part of 5 different 5 generation groups in her family. She is a follower of Christ and her faith was of the utmost importance. She was a member of Immanuel Methodist Church of Jefferson and later transferred her membership to Christ United Methodist of Watertown. She was a quiet lady who loved to be in her home and enjoyed animals. She was a talented baker and cook and loved sharing (and eating) her famous pickles – she even drank the juice! She is described as “the best mother”. She was loved deeply by her family and will be missed.
She is survived by: her Children Patricia Stolarczyk of Watertown, Robert Hall of Eau Claire, Sylvia (DonAllan) Starke of Okauchee, and Kristi Hall of Watertown; 17 grandchildren; many great-grandchildren; the last of the “Hake” clan Cousin Betty Lien of Sun Prairie. She is also survived by a number of other relatives.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Daughters Pamela Lederer and Mary Toth, and her Sister Carol Moore.
