She was predeceased by her children Caron Howar Brown, Raymond J. Howar, Jr. and Alan Howar and her ex-husband, Raymond J. Howar.

Born in 1930 in Atlantic City, New Jersey Elaine was the belle of every ball, a Martha Stewart before Martha Stewart. She loved to entertain, dance and share her love of life with her friends and extended family. Elaine was an avid tennis player, fisherman, flower designer and a master bridge player. Her dinner parties were legendary and full of music and laughter. Her creativity and enthusiasm for life was infectious and she was the best of friends to her peers. Elaine will be sorely missed by her friends and family.
