Elinore M Clayton (nee Clarke) ------ March 12, 1921 to January 30, 2019

Born and raised in Churchville, she was the daughter of the late Robert and Jenny Clarke. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and sister.

She enjoyed working at Lavelle Aircraft in Newtown and spending time at their Jersey shore house in Beach Haven West, Manahawkin, NJ.

Her nickname was TOTS, but no one remembers where that came from. When asked, she claimed she did not know.

She will be dearly missed and is now in a better place with her late husband, Stanley.

Elinore was predeceased by her two brothers, the late William (Bill) and the late George (Ben). She is survived by her two sons, Morrie and Ronnie and their spouses, Eleanor and Betsy, her grandchildren, Chris, Ryan (Michelle), Keith (Janet) and Kevin (Kim) and her great-grandchildren, Kenyon, Daniel and Alex.

So sorry to hear about Aunt Tots...I have fond memories of the LBI house as a child. And Andy & I looked forward to catching up with her at holiday dinners up at my moms. We understand the sadness you are feeling but she had a long and healthy life that you can celebrate. We wish we could express our condolences in person, but are out of the area this time of year.
