Sharon Hendel - 1 day ago

I was so very sorry to learn of the passing of your Mother, Elayne. My family and I extend our deepest condolences to all of you. She was a very special woman - strong and kind. I met her at the CPE du Y about 9 years ago. She was an amazing Director and always very helpful, understanding and patient. We shared the same birthday - October 28. She will be sorely missed. May her memory, courage and example help sustain you all through this difficult period.

Geoffrey Smith - 1 day ago

I was heart broken receiving the call that Elayne had passed... as a young man just starting my career, and at times overwhelmed by the stresses of my new job... she was always there offering me help, and comforting me along the way. She truly meant well, and would go out of her way to help just about anyone. She was caring, edgey, tough, funny, and an all around joy to know! My thoughts & prayers go out to her family & friends left behind. God Bless xx

A la famille Wasserman et Caron, Je tiens a vous dire a quel point je suis attristée par le décès de votre chère Elayne. Angela n'avais que de bels choses a partager, Elayne etait une belle source d'inspiration de force et de générosité pour elle. La seul raison que j'étais a l'aise que mes petits enfants aillent a la garderie était parce que Elayne était la a tout les jours et elle veillait sur eux. Sasha et Lucas adoraient Elayne, spécialement faire des biscuits avec elle, ils me disaient toujours "Mamie Elayne fais les meilleur biscuits." Je ressent votre douleur. Denise Aversano

We had the pleasure of meeting Elayne thirty years ago when she was the leader of our son's Beaver group at Beth Ora. It was easy to see her love for children and the reciprocal feeling the children ( and their parents) had for her. Condolences to her family on the loss of a very special person.

Phil Shugar - 10 days ago

Dear Wassermans, Carons and extended families, I am heartbroken to hear about Elayne's passing. Losing someone who has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, even if we saw each other sparingly over the years, is very sad. Growing up, our families were so close that 225 St. Aubin was my second home and Elayne always made me feel like I was her younger brother. As the years passed and we would run into each from time to time, the warm feeling and connection was as strong and genuine as ever. I will always carry wonderful memories of her. I hope that the courage and grace that she has demonstrated will comfort you through this difficult period. You are all in my thoughts with much love.

Laurie Zunenshine Urman - 10 days ago

Dear Hazel, Jonny, Ruth Ann and Caron family, It was with incredible sadness that I learned of my childhood friend Elayne has passed away. The years spent on St. Aubin were from another carefree era where all the kids would spend our weekends, after school and evenings playing together on the street until dark or in each other's homes where the doors were never locked and the adults were our surrogate aunts and uncles. The Wasserman and, millers, Shugars and zakaibs became our extended families. My brother Leslie joins me in sending our deepest sympathy on your tragic loss on Elayne's passing way before her time. May you know no more sorrow. Fondly, Laurie and Leslie

Elayne and your family will always have a special place in my heart.

May you find comfort in your wonderful memories and be spared any further sorrow. Rest in peace Elayne.

Lisa Zweig - 10 days ago

I remember when my son started at the CPE de Y, if ever he was feeling anxious or nervous Elayne would stop whatever she was doing to accompany him to his activities. Years later, my kids still think the Y was the best school ever, largely because of the caring, warm and happy atmosphere Elayne created. She truly was the heart and soul of that school and her kindness (and patience trying to teach me cross stitch) left a lasting impression on everyone who ever met her. She will be sorely missed.

Nancy Mindel- gorrin - 10 days ago

Dear Hazel and Family, My sympathies on the loss of your beloved daughter. May you be spared any further sorrow. my late parents always talked so highly of you and Dave. Sincerely, Nancy Mindel ( Petey and Gerry's daughter)

Jeff Kuhnreich - 10 days ago

Dear Hazel, Jon, Ruth Ann, Adam, Bram & Michelle, I have always believed that the impact that a person has in life can be measured not by what family and friends have to say about the person but rather what so called "third parties" have to say. Many times when we hear sermons from a Rabbi at a funeral we say to ourselves " who is that person they are talking about" because we knew that person as they really were however in Elayne's case all we have to do to is read the phenomenal tributes about her intelligence , compassion and character to understand what a good human being she was. Besides all the accolades which are certainly warranted, I just want people to know how brave, courageous, tenacious she was in her fight against all odds. She truly inspired me and as ill as she was she was always concerned with my health problems. RIP Elayne no more suffering, no more pain.

Caroline Druckman - 10 days ago

Dear Hazel, Our sincere condolences to you and your family. Our thoughts are with you. Caroline & Kiko

Gary Miller - 10 days ago

Dear Hazel, Jon, RuthAnn, and Caron Family, Although I haven't seen Elayne for many years, I recall her love for life and the joy and delight created in her company growing up on St. Aubin.

Rhona Hall - 10 days ago

It is with great pain and sadness to hear of Elaynes passing. My deepest condolences to the entire family for your loss. Some of my fondest childhood memories were spent with your family, the Millers and the Zunenshines. They were very loving times.You always knew that if you forgot your key, the Wassermans back door was always open. And if you were lucky Mrs Wassermans (Hazel) chocolate cake was there for the taking. St Aubin felt like one big family. I feel very fortunate that I had some time with Elayne before her passing to reminisce and to reconnect. Elayne and your family will always hold special place in my heart. Rhona

Condolences to Elaynes entire family. Elayne was my boss at CPE du Y. She was always very "hands on"- ready to help whoever needed it. "Tomorrow will be a better day" was always her motto, always encouraging whoever was having a difficult day. To her children: she truly loved you and often would speak to me about each one of you and of her grandchild. She was a very special lady, and will be missed by many. Rest in peace now, Elayne.

Robyn Bennett - 11 days ago

My deepest sympathies for your loss. My daughters were students at the Y and years later I had the opportunity to work with Elayne. She was a true professional and a wonderful leader.

I hope that now she is at peace. She will be deeply missed.

To Elayne's family... Elayne was a mensch...through and through. She was respected as a director, and loved as a friend. She was always ready to lend an ear, and give advice.....if it was asked for.

To Elayne's entire family, Let it be known that Elayne was a gem; one in a million; special beyond words; a great boss; a mensch; a selfless human being, a dear friend; a mentor, an inspiration to all. There are not enough words to say how we feel. Elayne left me with some powerful words of wisdom and comforted me and my family when we were mourning a loss. She inspired me to go back to school and gave me the opportunity to become part of the "Y" family. That's how she made us feel -like a family. And now we mourn this temendous loss. But we know that her suffering has ended She will be missed deeply Love, Karen, Melissa, & Eden Goldman (CPE du Y)

To the entire family, My sincere and deepest sympathy on the loss of your beloved Elayne. She was my incredible boss for 8 years at CPE du Y but more than that , she was a kind, generous and supportive human being who always put other people's needs before her own. I cherish our conversations, her valued advice , her wonderful sense of humour, her compassion to me when my mother was in palliative and then subsequently passed away. Elayne was, is, and will always be one of the dearest people that I have crossed paths with and I feel so blessed and honoured to have had her in my life. May your memories bring you comfort and may she now rest in peace with her beloved Eli.
