She was a gracious person. And there always seemed to be something regal about her. She was kind and quiet and warm and cheered the world with her music. When she was home she was an avid stair-climber. She is missed. Roger and Rosie Phillips

Darla, Craig, and extended family,
I loved your mom so much and my many visits with her even when she was still living in the family house on Wright. It was such a joy to take her to Suite Living with me where she assisted me by playing the piano for my monthly Sunday church for the residents. The last time I saw her, we went out to the piano there. It was her request for me to sing while she played. Elaine, I loved you so very much. How I will miss our sweet times! 🎶❤️

I am sorry for your loss. You will be in my thoughts and prayers during this time. When we used to get together for the holidays, I always enjoyed Elaine’s visits. She was such a sweet, joyful, quiet lady with a wonderful smile.

R Rhonda Cox May 5, 2022

Mrs. Luthy is one of those teachers you don't easily forget. She taught music at East Elementary School and inspired myself and probably many others to include music in their lives. I learned piano as a young child as a result and am grateful for her influence and for the role music has played in my life. More importantly, she exemplified a godly life. I celebrate her life with you and will be praying for you all.

P Penny Haynes Bundy May 5, 2022

Mrs Luthy was a wonderful , dedicated teacher. I have many happy memories of music classes with her at J.C. Knight School. She helped instill in me, and I believe in others, a lifelong appreciation and love for all genres of music. I am very grateful to have had Mrs. Luthy as a teacher. I offer my sincere condolences to her family and all who also knew and loved her. May she rest in peace.
