GREENSBORO Ms. Elaine Frances Schuyler Wyshak, 71, of Greensboro, went home to glory on Saturday, Nov. 28, 2009, at Moses Cone Hospital. A memorial service will be held Saturday, Dec. 5, 2009, at Clifton Road Baptist Church, with the Rev. Jeff Smith officiating. Her cremains will be privately inurned at Guilford Memorial Park, following the memorial service. Born in Winston-Salem, to the late Gleaves Boyd Schuyler and Margaret Cline Schuyler, Ms. Wyshak was a member of Clifton Road Baptist Church, where she was also a member of the Senior Adult Program.
