She loved to knit and crochet, and was always glad to donate her afghans to the needy through churches and Friends of the Poor.

In addition to her strong faith, her passion in life was being together with her family, including her extended family, Cosmo and Barbara Trapani and their family.

Best known to many as "Aunt Elaine," she always had time to talk, make a friend and establish lifelong relationships.

She was also preceded in death by two brothers, Danny and Walter Kwiatek; and a niece, Karen Kwiatek Black.

I only had the pleasure of meeting "Aunt Elaine" as she was introduced to us through Michael Kwiatek a few times. She struck me as a Lady of great class and grace. She had the spirit of a bygone era and I could just imagine her in her day working with clients at the Globe store. Even though she did not know us well she was so friendly and kind. She left a great impression on me for the short time I was in her company. Rest in peace aunt Elaine...
