On September 4, 1949, Elaine married Lloyd W. Buchholz in Crandon. To this union, two children were born. Elaine and Lloyd resided and raised their children on a farm near Hitchcock until 1971 when they moved to Redfield.

She enjoyed playing cards, games, golf, and quilting. Her inquisitiveness led her to become efficient on the computer, learning to play pinochle online with friends from all over. Elaine also used the computer to keep in touch with her children and grandchildren.
