Elaine Elizabeth Rost

Elaine Elizabeth Rost passed away on October 23, 2016 in Lacey, WA after a valiant and ever-positive battle with liver cancer.

Born in Boise, ID on July 13, 1945 to John and Florence Rost, she graduated from Boise High in 1963 and attended Whitman College for three years, graduating from the University of Washington in 1967. She worked her entire career as a technologist and study coordinator for the UW on research teams led by C. Alvin Paulson, MD, and William Bremner, MD.

Following her retirement in 2000 she relocated from her home in Bellevue to Whidbey Island and shared a home in Clinton with her friend Gail Madden. In 2008 Elaine and Gail moved to Panorama in Lacey where they shared a home until Elaine’s death. She was a world traveler, a talented photographer, a lover of Siamese cats, and a generous and loyal friend. Her radiant smile and her sense of humor were treasured and will be remembered by many.

In addition to her friend Gail, Elaine leaves her brother Jack (Susan) of McCall, ID and Salome, AZ, her Nephew John (Cristina) of Denver, her niece Julie Dennis (Edward) and her great nephew and niece Nicolas and Dacia all of Boise. A celebration of her life will be held next spring on Whidbey.
