The Lord called Elaine Porter Haggstrom on a beautiful, sunny morning on May 24, 2018, and as always, she couldn't say no. She was 91 years young and had lived in the Town of Trumbull for 58 years.
Born on March 9, 1927 in Bridgeport, Connecticut, Elaine was the only child of Susan Edwards Porter and Milton E. Porter. She grew up in Fairfield and attended local schools, graduating from Roger Ludlowe High School in 1945. One of very few women at the time to do so, she attended Bates College in Lewiston, Maine and graduated with a major in mathematics in 1949. She married her handsome Swede, Olle Haggstrom, on September 16, 1950. They reveled in each other’s company for 67 years.
