Marion Elaine Horrocks, 83, of Pocatello, Idaho passed away May 30, 2019, surrounded by her family after her courageous battle with cancer. She was born Jan. 3, 1936 in Glenns Ferry, Idaho to Arthur Carl & Edna Mac Anderson.
She married John David Horrocks on April 19, 1957 in the Idaho Falls Temple where they were sealed for time and all eternity and later, raised 6 children.
Elaine attended Twin Falls Business College and received her degree in secretarial business and then went to work as a secretary at Mountain Home AFB. She also worked for the school district in food service.
