Obituary of Elaine M. Landy

Elaine M. Landy, 82, of Jackson passed away peacefully with her niece by her side on Wednesday, March 6, 2024 at CentraState Medical Center, Freehold Township.  Elaine was born in Bayonne and raised on Staten Island.  She had lived in Holmdel before moving to Millstone Township in 1996.  Elaine downsized in 2022 and settled in the Four Seasons at Metedeconk Lakes, Jackson.  She had received her B.A. degree in Business Administration and had received her master’s in nursing.  In 2000, Elaine retired as a director of nursing.  Prior to this, she was instrumental in the inception of dialysis wings at several hospitals.  Also involved in the research side of the healthcare field, Elaine was a published author contributing to the work of Dr. DeBakey in Texas.  Most recently, volunteerism was her path, as a member of the CentraState Medical Center Auxiliary.

Meeting her husband, on a ski trip, was the highlight of her life.  It was on the plane when she knew she had fallen in love.    A perfect match, they traveled the world together, sailed the world together, and even skied the world together.  They volunteered at the Horse Park of New Jersey and were members of the Eastern States Dressage and Combined Training Association.  She had a passion for gardening and watching figure skating.  As a woman of faith, Elaine was a parishioner and member of the hospitality committee at St. Joseph Catholic Church, Millstone.

Elaine was predeceased by her husband, Lawrence and a brother, Richard Pelszynski.  She is survived by her brother, Stanley Pelszynski of Carlsbad, CA; a niece, Lisa Bertotti and her husband, Eric of Carlsbad, CA; three great nephews, Andrew, Ian, and Eli; and a sister-in-law, Patricia Pelszynski of Fairfax Station, VA.
