She raised two wonderful children in a house full of love, happiness, and caring. Besides her focus on being the best mother possible she maintained her Catholic faith and true love for Jesus Christ. When asked what she did to control the complications created by M.S. she said she prayed for God to help her though difficult times and hoped for the best. She gave her all to the family and friends. She never complained. She was gifted and giving the ability to help in Mark’s Family Practice office in Derby. She supported her church, St Mary’s of Derby and gifting to multiple charities.

I remember all the vacations our 2 families took , many centered around baseball games for the fathers or wineries. The Blakes in Port Dover put up with us for many years but they were great times for us. The picnics at Beaver Island State Park where we needed a wagon to get all our stuff from the car to the picnic tables. Actually knowing our families and all the stuff we took on these trips I don't know how there was room in the cars for us. These were trips and memories that bound us together as a family. I am so grateful to have shared them with Elaine and all the family. I believe Elaine is in heaven and catching up with the other Warszawskis that preceded her and that she is happy and not in any pain. She was a good soul and will be missed. Love, Kathy & Mike Dreyfus.
