I have special memories of Aunt Elaine. She inspired me to become a librarian.
When recently paging through her high school yearbook I found her photo on a page dedicated to the Library Club.
More importantly, Aunt Elaine was an avid reader. She shared a love of books with her brother, Bud.
Once Elaine told me that she admired my choice of professions. Although circumstances prevented it, Elaine's dream was to become a librarian.

I have fond memories of Aunt Elaine. She was intelligent, independent, and raised a fine family. It was always a great pleasure to visit with her and the Spizzo family. May she Rest in Peace.
