Elaine Ruth Loftin

Elaine Ruth Loftin was born in Los Angeles on March 4, 1944. She died on January 6th, 2022. She was 77 when she passed away of heart disease. She is survived by three children Mark Phillips, Diana Phillips, and Shelly Diel. She has many, many, many grandchildren who she loved very much. She is proceeded by her parents Dale Everler and Madge Rodgers, and along with them she is with her son Rick Stewert. Elaine cared for many more children other than her own. She was a big part Newport High School. Her role as a Janitor went outside of the custodial closet and she touched the hearts of troubled teens. She was there for them when they didn’t know who else to turn to, and if you were ever in the neighborhood next to Sam case, you could always swing by for a snack.

In her family life, Elaine was an amazing mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She would always put her family before herself and take care of those who needed her even though they were not blood. She cared for all.

We will be celebrating her love, memories and life on April 30th from 1pm – 3pm at the Yacht Club in Newport, OR.
