Obituary for Elaine T. Jacques

Elaine T. Jacques was born to the late Roy Tribble and Marjorie Blinco in Detroit, MI on September 30th, 1947. At a very young age, she was later adopted by Winston S. Greene.
To constantly hear from an early age that she’d never make it to the age of 10, a teenager, or a young adult she surpassed all odds and graduated from Osborn High School in Detroit, MI. She accepted Christ at a very early age, and was active in the church, especially at Green Forest Baptist Church in Decatur, GA.
She married her love, Cornell Jacques, on August 31, 1974 in Detroit, MI. They welcomed their only daughter, Monique Jacques Laster, on April 12, 1977 in Atlanta, GA. A new job opportunity brought them to Aurora, CO in 1989 and Colorado has been home ever since.
When her health permitted, she enjoyed participating with the Kappa Silhouette’s group in Denver, CO.
Being a mother was one of her greatest joys. Monique has many fond memories of how involved she was throughout her life, and will always be thankful for the times she had with her Mom.
Not only was Elaine a wonderful Wife and Mother, but she was an amazing Nana. She absolutely loved being Nana to both Diego & Mateo Laster. On any given day, you’d find her singing, goofing off, playing costume dress up or just plain ole’ feeding her babies. She loved them with every fiber of her being and held on while in the hospital until she could say goodbye to them.
Her family and friends will miss her dearly, but she will continue to live on in their hearts. She is preceded in death by her Brother Duane Tribble and Sister Judy Holyfied. Left to cherish her memory are her Mother, Marjorie Blinco Greene & Daddy Winston S. Greene of Detroit, MI; Mother Betty Tribble of Las Vegas,NV, her husband of 45 years, Cornell Jacques, Thornton, CO, daughter, Monique J. Laster, Thornton, CO, son-in-law, Martin Laster, grandchildren, Diego Martin Laster and Mateo Jacques Laster. Her siblings Lora Overton, Bruce Tribble and Jason Greene, all currently living in Detroit, MI along with numerous nieces, nephews, cousins & Aunts.
