Later in life, she joined Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church in Bennettsville, South Carolina. She received her education from the Marlboro County Public School District; graduating in the Clio High School Class of 1970. 

Elois was united in holy matrimony to the love of her life, Robert Lee Cain Sr. on July 31, 1971.  To this union five children were born.

Elois was employed as a machine operator at the United Technology Plant (Essex) in Bennettsville, South Carolina for 26 years. She was later employed at Perdue Farms in Dillon, South Carolina for 14 years. After her retirement, she loved babysitting her grandchildren.
