Elaine was married to my father Alan. I live in Connecticut. I last saw her in April of 2019. We had a great visit. We shared cards, letters and I spoke with her in January. I know she had not been feeling well. She was so good to my children when she and my father came to visit us in Ct. We stayed in their trailer a few times and enjoyed sitting by the fire and enjoying the clam bake my dad made for us. My dad passed away 51 years ago and in the short time they had together I saw such
Happiness in them both. Rest In Peace as you join together again.
With love, Ethel and family

I am sorry to hear of the passing of my cousin Elaine. Her mother Louise and my mother Pearle were sisters. Elaine’s parents had a lovely home in Westport and my family spent happy visits there. Elaine and I had many lunches together and she loved eating liver and onions at the Symposium. She was sweet, funny and loved cats more than anyone I ever met. She will be missed.

We have so many good memories, the one I cherish the most is camping at Ellis Haven, she would bring us to the beach with her all the time and taught me how to swim and give us money to go walk to get ice cream. Aunty Elaine was part of our family, after her husband died she was alone and she was included in all our family holidays and special parties . It makes me smile knowing you are with my Mom again in heaven , we all Love you 💕
