  • Elaine has been my dear friend and neighbor for over 53 years.  We worked together at Bliss Bros Dairy at Tri-Boro Plaza.  We raised our children together on Kenneth Kostka Drive and shared so much of our lives from First Communions,  Confirmations, High School and College Graduations with our kids.  Also, we found in  one another a true and loyal friend. Elaine was the first to send a congratulatory card to my children or a get-well card when one of us was ill.  I shall miss my dear, dear friend so much!    Love, Marilyn Beard  

  • To Elaine’s family

    We would like to extend our deepest sympathies on Elaine’s passing.   She was such a lovely woman.  We always chatted when she was out walking her beautiful dog Nickey.   She was a wonderful neighbor and will be missed on our street.  

    So sorry we cannot attend the funeral. We will be out of town on that weekend.
