FALLS VILLAGE – Elaine S. Johnson, of Facchin Street, died at Geer Memorial Hospital on Jan. 5, 2009.

She was born on May 12, 1934, in Sharon. She was the daughter of Kenneth Seeley and Willietta (Breevort) Seeley. Elaine was a graduate of Housatonic Valley Regional High School and The Brooklyn School of Nursing. In her earlier years, Elaine’s strong passion was spending time on her grandparents farm, which belonged to Ernest and Lucy Seeley of Amenia Union, N.Y. Later on, after earning her nursing degree, Elaine worked with Dr. Fischer in obstetrics for a number of years. More recently, she was a registered nurse employed at Geer Memorial for 22 years.

For the last 40 years, Elaine enjoyed spending vacations with her family at Wells Beach, Maine. The ocean was the love of her life, it kept her grounded and was a source of great comfort during her illness. She looked forward every year to spending time with all the friends she made over the years and especially her close companion, Gerald Jean.

Elaine is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Diane and Bill Palmer of East Canaan, and her son and daughter-in-law, Bob and Cheryl Johnson of North Carolina. She is also survived by three granddaughters, Nicole Palmer of East Canaan, Heather Johnson of New York, and Jenna Johnson of Sharon; three step-grandchildren, Laura Bosio of East Canaan, and Brian and Paul Allyn of Canaan; and seven great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by both of her parents as well as her sister, Barbara Seeley Greenwood.

A celebration of her life will be held 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Jan. 10, at Kenny Funeral Home, 41 Main St., Sharon.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be mailed to Salisbury Bank & Trust, P.O. Box 1868, Lakeville 06039. At Elaine’s request, all donations will be forwarded to the United Cerebral Palsy Association.
