Marijane Elmendorf

April 7, 1925 — March 15, 2018

Marijane Elmendorf fell asleep in Jesus at her home on March 15, 2018, after a short illness.  She was born April 7, 1925, in Muskegon, MI, to Earl and Abbie Ruth (McCampbell) Tupes.  Her parents, brother, Robert Tupes, and sister, Barbara (Tupes) Benson predeceased her.
In December, 1945, she married Robert L. Wohlers.  After his death in 1976, she married Dwight S. Wallack (d. 1988); and in 2005 she married Edward N. Elmendorf, II, of Vassar, Michigan (d. 2012).
Survivors include her daughters, Mary K. Becker of Grand Terrace, CA, and Barbara S. (Bobbie Sue) Wohlers of Alpharetta, GA; son-in-law, Larry Becker; grandson, Adam Becker; stepsons, Jere Wallack, Edward Elmendorf, III, and David Elmendorf; and nieces and nephews.
Marijane was a homemaker, church pianist, church treasurer, and was active in leading youth activities in the St. Johns, Michigan, Seventh-day Adventist church.  When her daughters were high-school age, she taught home economics, served in the library, taught typing, and directed the choir at their private school.  At age 50, Marijane earned her bachelor’s degree in nursing from Southern Missionary College in TN, having received a bachelor’s degree in secondary business education a few years earlier from University of Tennessee - Chattanooga.  She had a constant love of learning.
A faithful servant of God, she is remembered for her love of family and friends, and her friendly smile and kind ways to her fellow residents at Linda Valley Villa in Loma Linda, CA, where she lived for the last six years. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Your Story Hour (, or Companion Hospice of Riverside, 4199 Flat Rock Dr.,
Ste 200, Riverside, CA 92505.
