Black Tie International: Elaine Herbert

 

Elaine Herbert, Beloved Mother
 

 

 

Elaine B. Herbert, born Feb. 8, 1924, passed away peacefully on Tuesday afternoon, March 27, 2012 surrounded my her loving husband, daughter, family and friends at Lafayette Manor. Elaine was from Brownsville, Pa. , the daughter of the late Stephen Ritsko and Bertha Rozgony Ritsko. She was predeceased by her dear son Daryl W. Gregg, her brother Edward Ritsko and her sister Charlotte "Tootsie" Rockwell.

Elaine was a long standing member of St. John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church in Uniontown and a graduate of Brownsville Area High School, class of 1942. She loved life and loved to laugh. Elaine enjoyed traveling and had a large circle of friends from all walks of life which she easily made with her gift of conversation. Her generous nature touched many people, Elaine gave rather than receiving and was a loyal friend and trusted member of the community, always there to lend a hand to those
in need.

In previous years, Elaine volunteered with the local Democratic party, was an Avon Representative and a Demo worker at many local stores greeting customers with various samples to try. Indeed, she was always excited to be out and about meeting and talking with people. Elaine's love of children led her to work at Echo Day Care, Central Christian Church in Uniontown for many years.  Elaine was the happiest when she was spending time with her husband Kenneth and surrounded by her family who she deeply loved and cherished. She especially enjoyed cook outs and family gatherings, music, bingo and her now deceased dogs Romeo,
Juliette and Sparky.

Elaine is survived by her loving and devoted husband of almost fifty years, Kenneth R. Herbert who never left her side, her beloved daughter Sara Herbert-Galloway and her dear son Gregory S. Ritsko, Sr. of Brownsville and his wife.  She was blessed with eight grandchildren: Gregory Ritsko, Jr. (Hiller), Renee Dillon (Uniontown), Bonnie Liston (LaBelle), Daryl Gregg, Jr. (Maryland), Chad Gregg (Vesta 6), Nicole Gregg (LaBelle), Justin and Alana Galloway (New York). She has thirteen grandchildren and one great-great grandchild. A brother William Ritsko and his wife Mary Francis ( Fayette City) and daughter-in-law Nellie "Bonnie" Gregg (LaBelle). Elaine was fortunate to have many loving nieces, nephews and friends, although all are lovingly remembered it's not possible to name everyone in this obituary. Her family would like to especially acknowledge and thank her devoted niece, Joyce Deems who was always there to help and care for Elaine in her later years, she was like a daughter to her.

Friends will be received in the Kezmarsky Funeral Home, 71 Pennsylvania Ave., Uniontown, PA. on Friday March 30, 2012 from 2 to 4pm and 7 to 9pm and Saturday morning until 9am when prayers of transfer will be held followed by a 9:30am mass of Christian Burial in St. John's Roman Catholic Church with Rev. James Tringhese as celebrant. Internment will follow at Mt. St. Macrina  Cemetary in Uniontown
 
"I am very grateful for all the love and support my family and I have received from so many people. 
 The memory of my mother will live on through my charity. I'm purchasing rocking chairs and furnishings needed for the children's room at the Uniontown Public Library in PA. The many autographed books being sent from accomplished authors will be prominently displayed. These books and all of the random acts of kindness show the people of the town that others really care about their community. I hope to empower children and raise awareness by inspiring literacy through education.  All I did was plant a seed and thanks to all of you, it is already growing into a beautiful tree that will help many. Who knows, perhaps one day we will have an entire forest. More to come.."

My mother loved children and even helped out in a day care in her later years. She was happiest when surrounded by children and family.


In lieu of flowers, if you wish you can make a contribution to "Appalachia, A Diamond in the Rough" ( EIN: 27-0974768 )

With Love and Gratitude,

Sara
