October 7, 1931 – January 14, 2021
It is with deep regret and sadness that we inform you of the passing of Elaine Gelfond. She peacefully passed away on January 14th after spending the afternoon with her two children and sharing her desire to "get on the bus" and reunite with family members that had passed before her.
Elaine was originally from Brockton, MA and graduated from Brockton High School, class of 1949. After graduation she attended secretarial school and worked for several companies before staying home as a full-time mom. When her children got older, she worked as a social services case manager for the State of Massachusetts, a career she was very proud of and later retired from. After she retired, some of her happiest years were spent living in California where her daughter, son in law, and two young granddaughters were living at the time.
Elaine was the beloved daughter of Max and Bessie Gelfond, sister of David and Alvin, Mother of Michelle and David, and proud Nana to Hannah, Holly, Mary, and Matthew. She loved the Red Sox, Mickey Mouse, and showering her grandkids with love.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Hebrew Senior Life are welcome as they helped provide care and dignity to Elaine in her final years.
