March 7, 1925 – Feb. 22, 2012
Elaine Sessions Moncur, 86, died on Feb. 22, 2012, at North Big Horn Hospital in Lovell. Elaine was born in Byron on March 7, 1925, to Marvin Cox Sessions and Serepta Asay Sessions.
During World War II, her family moved to Seattle for a short time. Even though the family returned to Byron, Elaine chose to go back to Seattle after high school, where she worked for the Army Corps of Engineers.
Following some health concerns, Elaine moved back to Wyoming. She went to work at Lovell Drug, where she met J. Doyle Moncur. They were married a short time later on Dec. 29, 1944, in Billings. They made their home on the family farm and raised three children. Elaine and Doyle celebrated 67 years of marriage.
As well as being a wonderful wife and mother, Elaine was a fabulous gardener, cook, artist and natural born teacher to her children and grandchildren.
Elaine is survived by her husband, Doyle Moncur, and her three children, Janice Gray, Brent Moncur and Marilyn Dickson. Also left to remember Elaine are nine grandchildren and 40 great-grandchildren.
Services were held Monday at 10 a.m. at Haskell Funeral Home.
