    I will always remember our cousin, Elaine “Punky” Koll… with the fondest and loving memories of growing up together as kids. We started our Medical careers together and lived together in Watertown.
    I always looked forward to getting together when I returned to SD for family visits, to get caught-up on our families and lives! I will always cherish the wonderful memories of love and laughter with my sweet, wonderful cousin…Punky. I Love You very much and will miss you very much!
    Our thoughts and prayers are with her family. I especially have special thoughts and prayers for her brother Butch, sister-in-law Margaret, & her nieces.

    I will miss Elaine as a co-worker with Community Health and as a friend. I admired her spirit and interest in her clients. My deepest sympathy.

    I was saddened to hear of Elaine’s (Punky’s) death. I knew her from high school, grade school, and probably earlier even in Sunday School. She was always a really neat person and so much fun to be around. My deepest sympathy to her family at this difficult time. Cherish your memories of this special lady.
