Elaine M. (Thomley) Colby, age 98, passed away October 10, 2020, at Dove Healthcare in Osseo.

Elaine was born at home in rural Osseo on July 9, 1922, to Edwin and Minnie (Hanson) Thomley. She was baptized, confirmed, and married at South Beef River Lutheran Church. Elaine married Bernard Colby on June 11, 1943, and they lived and farmed in Chimney Rock with their two children, Arlyn and Anita.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions and precautions, the family has chosen a private service for Elaine. In lieu of flowers or plants, memorials are preferred and should be directed to Chimney Rock Lutheran Church in Elaine’s name. The family thanks Dove Healthcare for their wonderful and loving care of Elaine over the last several years. Mange tusen takk.

The Schiefelbein Funeral Home, 13507 - 7th St., in Osseo is serving the family, (715) 597-2101.
