Janice Elaine Hay, 86, of Pelham, GA, departed this life on July 4, 2024.  She was born July 13, 1937, in Rockford, IL, to


 the late John and Alice (Albright) Hayes.

Elaine was the bookkeeper for Hay Brothers Enterprises, which included a fabrication and mechanical business in Sikeston, MO.  She was musically talented and was a part of the Sikeston Community Choir during the time she and Oz resided in the Sikeston area.  In keeping with the family business and Oz’s love of engines and automobiles, Elaine’s favorite thing to do was go to the truck-pulls with Oz and spend time with her family.  She was an amazing mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.
