Elaine B. (Constantine) Berrier, of
Everett, formerly long of Shrewsbury, passed away on Saturday,
January 30th, at the Winchester Hospital. Elaine was
born in Greensburg, PA, in 1952, the daughter of Ernest and Erma
Constantine. She graduated from Hempfield High School with the
Class of 1970. She then attended Indiana University of PA,
where she received her degree in Nursing. In 1973, she married
her sweetheart, Jerry L. Berrier, and the two settled down
together in PA. Eventually, Jerrys employment brought the two
to the Boston area, and they settled down in Shrewsbury,
becoming part of the community there. They moved again in
1998, this time coming to Everett, where they remained.
Over the years
Elaine spent most of her career as a Nurse, in both PA and in
Massachusetts. She was also an author, and had her book,
Molly Eiderdown’s Journal, published. She enjoyed movies and
jigsaw puzzles, and liked to sing and play the keyboard as well.
She also enjoyed taking her husband on vacations. In her
spare time, she had volunteered as the Parish Nurse for her
church, a role that had more to do with caring and compassion
than actual nursing duties.
She is survived
by her husband Jerry, her children Heather and Tom, her
grandchildren Celeste, Giulia, Chase, Devyn, and Wesley, and her
great granddaughter Aliyanna.
Elaine will be held at the Good Shepherd United Methodist
Church, 577 Salem St, Malden on Thursday, Feb 4th,
from 4 – 7 PM, and a Memorial Service will be held at 7:00 PM.
In Lieu of
