Elaine Luella Merritt Rollins passed away on February 10, 2023, at the age of 84, sur­rounded by family in her home just north of Silver Bay, MN. Elaine was born in Dan­bury, WI, in 1938, and graduated from high school in 1956 from Two Harbors, MN.

Elaine married Joseph Rollins, in 1975, and lived in the Twin Cities area and Owatonna, MN until 1992, when they retired in Silver Bay, MN. Elaine loved the outdoors, fishing, camping and canoeing in Northern Min­nesota and Ontario. She and Joe owned a cabin on Northern Light Lake and enjoyed numerous trips there for 30 years. They also frequently spent winters in Mesa, AZ.

Elaine is survived by her husband Joe Rollins, son Mark Rollins (Sharon), daugh­ter Patricia Diedrich, with grandchildren Matthew Rollins, Amanda Diedrich and Alexandra Borchert (Brandon).
