Elaine Bunderson Perkins, 75, died Thursday July 22, 2004 in Boise, Idaho. Elaine was born to Boon and Alma Augusta Pehrson Bunderson in St. Charles, Idaho on June 3, 1929. After graduating from Fielding High School, Elaine married Durwood Perkins of Montpelier on July 17, 1947 in the Logan Utah LDS Temple. They made their home in Montpelier where Durwood worked for Bear Lake Motor and Elaine was a homemaker. They were blessed with three children, Jeffrey, Janice and Julie. Elaine was actively involved in the community and church. She was a voter registrar for over 40 years. She served in many church assignments including callings in the Relief Society and Primary organizations. Her husband passed away on January 30, 1984 of complications caused by diabetes.

Devoted wife, caring mother, loving sister and dependable friend are a few of her titles. Elaine lived life to the fullest. Her world revolved around her family, friends and church. She loved to be around people and people loved being around her.
