Elena was 68yrs old and lived in Farmington, NM. She passed away on Wednesday, October 30th, 2019. She was born on September 5th, 1951 in Clinton, IN to Wilbur "Webb" Sills and Virgina Lawson.
Elena grew up throughout Indiana and Illinois before moving to Arizona with her mother, step father Francis Gene Navel, and her siblings. They eventually moved to Farmington where she met her future husband, Cecil Everett. They dated briefly and then married soon after. After having two sons, Cecil's job moved the family to Combs Kentucky where they lived until Cecil's passing, in 1979.
