Born on March 11, 1934, she graced the lives of all who had the privilege of knowing her. Her radiant smile, fierce personality, and unwavering faith brought light and joy to every room she entered.
Elaine was a pillar of strength for her family, a loving and devoted wife, a cherished mother, and a beloved grandmotherand great grandmother. She embraced her role as a nurturer and caregiver, selflessly pouring her heart into the well-being of her loved ones.
Elaine’s love for church extended beyond attending regular services. She actively participated as a Eucharistic minister and volunteered her time and talents for the better of the congregation. She enjoyed spending her leisure time golfing at North Jersey Country Club and her summers at the beach in Lavallette, NJ.
