    I was very sorry to hear the sad news of Elaine’s passing. I worked many years with Elaine on the Board of the Friend’s of the Woodbridge Library and various committees. She was a lot of fun to work with, and to be with, and when she retired from the board she was missed. The Friends send their deepest sympathy. Dale Chodos, Corresponding Secretary

    I have been blessed to be Elaine’s dog groomer for over 14 years. Elaine loved her long haired dogs. I built a trusting relationship with the wary Mr. Tuffy and managed to make the shy Diva feel safe. They were her beloved Polish Lowland Sheepdogs and I believe she is with them now along with her husband, Joe. I will be missing her Melody who is off to a new home. Elaine was a wonderful client and friend. She was kind, down to earth, and generous – bringing me and my son, Josh, thoughtful gifts such as cupcakes from NYC and flowers. We considered Elaine a good friend and will miss her very much. Thank you to those who filled in a bit more of her history.
