Elaine was born in Lowell, MA on June 9, 1940. She grew up in the French Catholic community and attended school locally throughout her childhood. She married her best friend, the late Reginald Palaski, on November 14, 1959. Together they raised their two children in Chelmsford, MA and successfully managed a local furniture store. They traveled the world, golfed, and made many happy memories.
Elaine was a generous woman who found comfort and community in her church. She was passionate about charity and donated her time as much as possible. Elaine loved to travel, try new restaurants, and spend time with her granddaughter Brittany. Many of her fondest memories were made in Aruba with her friends during her weeks on the beach each year. She will be missed by many and remembered for her spunky outlook on life.
