Elaine Alldredge Weeks was born June 19, 1929 to Eleazar and Alice Barlow Alldredge in Salt Lake City, Utah. She passed away October 31, 2016 with her children Joel and JoAlice by her side. She is now reunited with her husband Ernie of 64 years, who passed away in June.
Elaine grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada and attended the University of Nevada in Reno. It was there at a church dance that she met Ernie Weeks, and after marrying in 1952 in Salt Lake City, they began their lifetime of adventure.
Elaine spent many years as an elementary school teacher in Nevada, California, Samoa, Saudi Arabia, and Utah. She also earned a Doctor of Education from Brigham Young University in reading and became a reading specialist. Her love of children and education continued to influence countless lives for good later in life as she took her passions and skills to serve multiple missions for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints with Ernie. They traveled the world together in those missions and in numerous vacations to diverse countries. Elaine's grandchildren and great-grandchildren were very dear to her, and they all carry special memories of her time with them.
Elaine is survived by her children Joel (Diane) of Salt Lake City and JoAlice (Jack) Seybert of Johnstown, CO; nine grandchildren; and 19 great-grandchildren. Elaine is preceded in death by her parents, five brothers, and husband Alvin Ernest (Ernie).
Services will be held Saturday, November 5, 2016 at the Historic Rock LDS Church, 413 North W. Capitol St. in Salt Lake City at 11:00 a.m. Interment will follow at Wasatch Lawn Cemetery, 3401 S. Highland Dr. The family has requested that in lieu of flowers or other gifts, donations be made in Elaine and her great- grandson's honor to Autism Speaks at events.autismspeaks.org/tributes/weeksmemorial.
