IN MEMORY OF ELAINE LONG
The radiance which was once so bright is forever taken from our sight. Though nothing can bring back the hours of joy and friendship we will grieve not, rather find strength in our memories - The flower that smells the sweetest is so much to miss, and so much to remember.
Elaine Long passed away on August 1, 2018. She was an active and passionate member of our Kershaw County Master Gardeners Association and a dear friend to all of us. Elaine was a graduate of the 1990 Master Gardener Class. During her years as a master gardener she was continuously active and served on the board of the Kershaw County Master Gardeners Association as well as the South Carolina Midlands Master Gardener Association. She was president of KCMGA in 2015. She was also the historian for SCMMGA and KCMGA and maintained records for both organizations. Elaine was instrumental in organizing our first KCMGA Seminar in 2015 and was actively involved with the Seminar in 2016 helping secure speakers. Elaine loved answering questions and providing guidance to gardeners at the Ask A Master Gardener table at the Sheep Shearing and the Farmers Market and was so knowledgeable and eager to help our community.
Elaine will be greatly missed and remembered affectionately by all.
