Elaine A. Robertson

February 3, 1933 --- November 18, 2017

Elaine A. Robertson age of 84 went to be with the Lord Saturday, November 18, 2017. Elaine was born February 3, 1933, to Carl and Elsie (Heusinkvelt) Lahm in rural Hallam, Nebraska. She and her older brother Earl Lahm moved with their parents to a farm near rural Hickman area in the 1940s.

Elaine met Jean R. Robertson at Roca High School and they married in 1950. They lived and worked in both California and Lincoln until they purchased a farm in 1952 between Sprague and Roca. They had four children -- Sue, Jill, Russ and Rob. Along with raising their children and helping Jean with the farm, she was involved with many church, community and volunteer activities.

Her life on the farm was busy with attending activities of her kids, driving grain trucks, sorting livestock, delivering meals to the field, gardening, canning, quilting, and always preparing meals for Jean, the hired men and the kids who helped on the farm. Quilting was a favorite pastime for Elaine. All the children, grandchildren and great grandchildren were recipients of the many quilts made from her love. She was a member of the Sprague Community Church and enjoyed many years of attending Church and serving in the Women’s Guild.

Jean passed away in 1998 and Elaine moved off the farm to a townhouse in Beatrice. There she met Eldon Bussboom and many other friends as they enjoyed going out to eat, card games and dominos. Her family and friends will remember her as a loving and giving person who never let anything get in the way of her love and concern for others. She was a member of the First Christian Church in Beatrice.

Elaine is proceeded in death by her parents Carl and Elsie Lahm, husband Jean Robertson, friend Eldon Bussboom, sister-in-law JoAnn Lahm, and nephew Bruce Lahm.
