Wenglarski, Elaine Lou, age 75, of Lansing, passed away on Thursday morning, March 2, 2017. She was born December 5, 1941, in Muskegon, Michigan to Lloyd and Dorothy Coates, and was the second of four children. She is survived by her three siblings: Judith Price, David (Jeannine) Coates, and Leslie (Cheryl) Coates.

Elaine graduated from Muskegon High School in 1960, and then attended Western Michigan University where she graduated with a Bachelor of Music Degree in 1964. At Western Michigan, Elaine was a member of the Mortar Board, a national honor society for women, the music fraternity Sigma Alpha Iota, and the University Choir. It was in the Music program where Elaine met her husband to be, L. John Wenglarski. Elaine and John (who survives her), were married before their senior year at Western Michigan on September 7, 1963, and were together in marriage for the past 53 years, having spent the last 44 years in their home in Lansing.

Elaine completed a Master of Arts Degree in Education in 1970 at Michigan State University and became a lifelong Spartan fan.

Elaine was a long-time member of First Presbyterian Church in Lansing where she enjoyed singing in the choir and playing in the bridge group. She was also an avid tennis player and a volunteer at Sparrow Hospital in Lansing. Additionally, Elaine was a very loving grandmother to her four grandchildren, all of whom will miss Grandma very much.
