She was an early adopter of college education for nursing and earned a B.S. in Nursing Education from Marquette University in 1952. A lifelong passion for learning inspired Elaine to earn a M.S. in Educational Administration and Supervision from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and a B.A. in Art Therapy from Mount Mary College.

After the birth of her firstborn, Elaine was a full-time mother and homemaker for a rambunctious family of five, plus Earl and the occasional pet. Elaine returned to nursing at Beloit Memorial Hospital in the late 1960s. She subsequently worked as a nurse and nurse educator in the Milwaukee area. She was fond of telling her students that they would receive grades the old fashioned way: “You will earn them.”

Elaine was an avid bridge player throughout her adult life and enjoyed entertaining. She travelled the world with Earl. She participated in local and regional juried art shows as a water colorist and craftswoman. She was a Board Member of the East Side Adult Care Respite Center, Pius XI High School Parents’ Association, and the Kenosha Youth Development Center. Later in life, Elaine and Earl hosted the “Winkelman Reunion” in locations nationwide and directing events so that “everyone will have fun.”
