September 15, 1938- June 25,
“Life of the Party”
At 2:30 pm on Sunday June 25th
a beautiful, sunny summer day, our mother, sister, daughter,
nana and friend went to heaven. Elaine had been bravely battling
a terminal illness for the last four years and this day marked a
peaceful end to her journey.
Always ready to enjoy herself
and the company of others, Elaine left no party unattended and
no quick joke un-told. As a result of having three older
brothers she mastered the art of flirting at an early age and
this continued until her passing. Elaine was a Daddy’s girl and
proved to be his spitting image in her later years.
At age 19, Elaine had the first
of 4 beautiful daughters. She worked as a hairdresser and
retired from New England Telephone Company. She loved fashion
and was known for her great sense of style. Elaine loved Italian
food and was a master cook; she enjoyed nightlife, the beach,
dancing, and cooking for her family.
Until her passing she continued to light up the room with her
presence, welcoming smile, easy laugh and her signature leopard
print outfits. Throughout her life, she was a great, loyal
friend, and possessed a natural ability to make you feel
special. Affectionately known as “Nana Ma” to her Grandchildren,
she was a self-proclaimed QVC connoisseur, always on the look
out for a good deal.
We cannot begin to imagine life
without her. She will be missed more than words can ever
express. She is in a better place now, dancing with her Dad and
free of all earthly constraints. We love you, and know that we
have a special guardian angel watching over us forever. Until we
are together again - Godspeed!
