Elaine Elias

Elaine Elias, 60, of Pemberton Avenue, Jamestown, peacefully passed away in her home on July 19, 2013.

Elaine lived in Jamestown for 27 years, having moved here from the Ladd School in Exeter. An avid walker, Elaine could for many years be seen making the rounds in her neighborhood regularly. She operated her own dry-cleaning and laundry-delivery service, bringing a little convenience to some of her Jamestown neighbors.

Elaine was part of the Bridges Inc. community and was loved by her housemates, friends and staff. Her happy expressions of joy and her infectious smile will be greatly missed. During her days at Bridges, she painted, exercised with Bee in Motion, and was part of the community drumming circle. Also a member of the Central Baptist Church, she was embraced by its congregation.

Elaine is survived by her Bridges family including her housemates Paula Montaquila, Matthew Vars, Michael DeTour, Corenia Pascua and Daniel Macaruso, as well as her devoted staff and loving friends.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.
