Elaine was a graduate of the University of Maine, Farmington, with a bachelor's degree in Oceanography.

Elaine is survived by her beloved brother, Charles T. Hickson, Jr. of Newton, Massachusetts and his wife, Susanne Paullin; her Aunt Elaine Parmenter of Connecticut (and her children, Carol, Jeff and Bruce); her Aunt Jeannie Crowley of Connecticut (and her husband John, and their children Katie and Michael); as well as her late Uncle Mel Wing’s wife, Dorothy of Maine (along with their children, Cathy, Scott, Holly, Russell and Becky).
