Elaine Barter has been a nurse for over 30 years. She is a mother of 7, grandmother of 9 with a 10th on the way, and a caring wife. Over the past year, she has gone above and beyond the call of duty by caring for her husband during multiple hospitalizations and surgeries for a rare pancreatic tumor as well as caring for one of her daughters who is battling cancer. Elaine’s father passed away at the age of 90 this summer and she was by his side nursing him right through to the end. She puts everyone before herself. She is a mother, wife, and nana to us all and we love her.
