Jeanne Marie Elenin (nee Luca) passed away Wednesday, June 10, 2020 after an incredibly brave fight with cancer.

Jeanne was married for 55 years to Carl Elenin (1937-2018) and had three children Barb (Terry) Campbell, Paul (Susan Daunch) and Christine (Andrew) Huck.  Her insanely beloved grandchildren are Zachary, Benjamin, Claudia, Augustus, and Addison.   She also leaves behind on this earth many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews cousins and friends too numerous to count. She was the daughter of Anna (nee Blazina) and Joseph Luca and sister of Ronald Luca who have all preceded her in death. 

Jeanne grew up in Lorain, Ohio and graduated from Lorain High School.  She worked for the local credit union in the years after graduation.  After she met Carl, they married on a blue skied, remarkably warm late November day.  They adorably renewed their vows on their 50th wedding anniversary. 

While raising her children, Jeanne became the church secretary of Holy Trinity Church which she did for 28 years.  She was a highly active member serving as a Eucharistic Minister, Lector, PSR teacher and helped at literally every church picnic, pancake breakfast, paprikash dinner and all other events.   She also organized and participated in many outings and day trips where she cultivated her love for casinos and penny slots.  She was also an active member of the United Slovak Society, the Altar and Rosary Society and the Holy Trinity Seniors.  She was most recently a member of St. Mary Catholic Church in Vermilion.   She enjoyed traveling to Amish Country, the Bahamas, Williamsburg,  Cincinnati and Idaho.

She was a loving, considerate, straightforward woman.  She exhibited a strength, especially in these last two years since her husband died, that is to be admired.  Her children respected and loved her tremendously.  Words cannot express how much she will be missed.
