Her six grandchildren Michael, Olivia, Ethan, Ty, Andrew and Jesse will always remember her with their many happy memories. Elaine was the beloved niece of Anita Ginocchio, a dear cousin to Gail Rosen, Lynne Cohen, and Karen Hoversen, and a wonderful friend to many. Born and raised in Queens, NY, Elaine went on to become a teacher, an RN, and a research scientist at the NY State Psychiatric Institute at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan. She dedicated over 20 years to the healthcare field and was instrumental in trending data outcomes for patients suffering with mental illness. While working, Elaine also raised her family in Norwood, NJ. They enjoyed summers in Cape Cod and had a lot of laughs on many family camping trips. Elaine was an educator and health care professional who loved to help others. She requests that she is remembered with laughter and joy.
