“The Price of Love is Grief”Elaine Jeffers (Jakubas)

Elaine M. Jeffers (Jakubas) MSN, RN, LNC, CCM, CDP, C-AL, passed away on Friday May 18th, 2018 surrounded by family. Her passing, leaving all of us who knew her in shock.

Elaine is survived by her husband of 36 years, Dennis; two sons Dennis Jr. (Erica) and Leyland; grandson Carter; brothers John and Bernard (Khalida); sisters Deidre (Victor) and Kathleen.

Elaine was known for always trying to make someone’s tomorrow better. Whether it was mentoring a young nurse, helping a resident get through their day to day or just giving a family member or friend a loving confidence boost. Elaine touched many lives and will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.

If you remember Elaine, then we are certain you will agree that she had a thousand-watt smile and a huge heart to match. Her passion for serving our seniors was so evident in every interaction with her. She was so well-suited for her vocation.

Elaine was smart, compassionate, quick to give a compliment and was very funny. A wonderful way to honor Elaine would be to simply be kind to everyone you meet today- and greet everyone with a big smile. Difficult as it is, Elaine wanted everyone to remember her without sadness, but with happy thoughts.

Elaine will forever remain in the hearts and minds of those who knew her.
