Elaine Estelle Hancock, loving wife, mother and grandmother, passed away at the age of 79 on January 2, 2022. Most recently a resident of Parrish, Florida, she was born in Craigsville, West Virginia to Kenneth Edward and Charlotte Cleo Ritchie (nee Morrison). She was devoted to her husband of 58 years and joyfully followed him as his job located him to more than 20 cities throughout the southeast. With her beaming smile and bubbly personality, she was adored by everyone who met her. She is survived by daughter Kari (Danny) Brown of Parrish, Florida; daughter Kelly Hancock of Fairfax Station, Virginia; grandsons Thomas Moxley, James Moxley and Philip Moxley all of Fairfax Station, Virginia; brother-in-law Robert (Debbie) Hancock of Franklin, Tennessee; sister-in-law Heather Hancock of Hartwell, Georgia, cousins, nieces and nephews; and her cat Blackie who brought her great comfort after Jim’s passing in 2020. She devoted her life to taking care of her family.
