Elaine was the beloved wife of the late Andreas; loving mother of three sons, Nick, Curt (Donna Kase), Dean Paloumpis and daughter Christine (the late Keith) Berland; proud grandmother of 10 and great-grandmother of 4; daughter of the late Evon and the late Mae; dear sister of George (Helen) Stamos, the late Dean (the late Francine) Stamos, and the late Sandra (the late Sam) Geannopulos; beloved aunt and friend to many.

Elaine was defined by her profound faith and her love of family and friends. Nothing made Elaine happier than entertaining the ones she loved in her home.
