Obituary for Elaine M. Jagiela

Elaine M. Jagiela of Hartland went to be with the Lord on Thursday, January 27, 2011, surrounded by her loving family. She was 70 years old.

Elaine was born in Detroit on September 28, 1940 to Theodore and Mary Wakar. She grew up in Detroit, graduating from Chadsey High School in 1959. Elaine and John married on April 15, 1961 at Our Lady of Grace, Dearborn Heights. They were blessed with two beautiful children, Donna and Michael. Donna and Michael remember being raised by a mother �strong in her ways�, living spiritually and always teaching by �right and wrong.� She was the caregiver of the family, watching out for everyone at all times. Elaine was always �on call� and ready to assist in anyway. She was the "coolest" of grandmothers. Her grandchildren will hold dearly to their memories of grandma swimming, roller skating, riding her Razor Scooter, and even jet skiing with them on the lake. Elaine�s husband, children, and grandchildren will see memories forever in the stained glass and pottery items she had made for them.

She will be truly missed by John, her beloved husband of 50 years; daughter, Donna (Neal) Engel; son, Michael (Susan) Jagiela; grandchildren, David (Cassandra) Lanning, and Morgan Elaine Jagiela; great-grandchildren, Alivia & Haylie Lanning.

Funeral Mass will be at St. John the Baptist Church, 2099 North Hacker Road, Howell, on Monday, January 31, 2011 at 11 AM with gathering beginning at 10 AM. Fr. Kurian Kollapallil to Officiate. Visitation will be at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home, 404 E. Main St., Brighton, Sunday, January 30, 2011 from 3 - 7 PM with a Scripture Service at 6 PM. Memorials may be made to St. John the Baptist Church in Elaine�s name. For further information please phone 810-229-2905.
