Elaine Denise Copeland, 64, of Waco, TX, passed away on Monday, August 17, 2020, at Ascension Providence in Waco after a very short, courageous battle with lung cancer.

Born on March 22, 1956, in Dallas to Emil and Judith (Sykora) Jakubik, Elaine was a Waco High graduate and a 46-year employee of Texas Meter & Device, where she worked as a meter technician. She loved her dog Cash, her two cats Tyson and Noel, and was an avid gardener. Along with having a fantastic sense of humor, Elaine was known by all who knew and loved her as a joyful, energetic woman with a heart of gold. Her loyalty, sweet smile, and caring nature will be missed by many.

Elaine is preceded in death by her parents, Emil Jakubik and Judith Sykora Morin, her sister Sherry Stephens, and beloved son Noah Copeland.

She is survived by her husband of 46 years Kenneth Copeland, daughter-in-love Angela Riddle, sister Diane Counterman, brother Clinton Jakubik and wife Pat, brother-in-law Charles Copeland and wife Susan, and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

The family would like to thank Ascension Providence ICU Group for the love and care they gave Elaine and the family during a very difficult time.

Visitation and rosary will be held on Thursday, August 20, at 6:00 p.m. at Oakcrest Funeral Home. Mass will be held on Friday, August 21, at 10:00 a.m. at St. Louis Catholic Church with graveside services following at Oakwood Cemetery. The family asks that all current mask and social distancing guidelines are followed by attendees.

Mrs. Copeland,
It's with great sorrow that I am writing on your tribute wall. I wish I could be telling you this instead of typing it. It brings tears to my eyes to think of all the things you did for us that went unnoticed until now. That's not saying that we didn't appreciate them at the time, but without you here now it is so apparent. KC and I are in awe of how much you truly did. To me, it's a window into the type of woman you were...the strength and will power you had...and the integrity and character you possessed. I'm honored to have had you in my life for as long as I did. I know you are with Noah beat us both. But, I would be remiss if I didn't say that I know you miss KC too. You will never be forgotten and I hope you know how much we miss and love you.
