Elaine Mary Parente, 67, of Voorhees, formerly of Cherry Hill, passed away on Dec. 31, 2023 at Virtua Hospital, Voorhees. Elaine grew up in Burlington City and graduated from Holy Cross High School in Delran in 1974. She went on to attend Rutgers University and earned a Bachelor of Arts, graduating with honors in 1978. Elaine was an avid reader and hardworking, accomplished student who planned to attend law school, but her path in life was tragically altered by a car accident in New York City in the fall of 1978. She spent many months in hospitals and rehabilitation centers before returning to Burlington City to reside with family. Elaine loved to travel, and over the years was fortunate to take many trips throughout the United States, Europe and South America with her mother Helen, her Aunt Patricia Caulfield, and other companions. For many years, Elaine lived in Cherry Hill under the care of Bancroft NeuroHealth and more recently at Complete Care at Kresson View in Voorhees. Throughout her life she remained an inspiration to those who crossed her path, never losing her sense of humor, dry wit and "feisty" attitude. She will be missed. Elaine was predeceased by her parents, Helen L. Parente and John A. Parente. She is survived by her loving sister Patricia Parente Strang and brother-in-law Robert Strang Jr. of Lumberton, her brother Christopher Parente and sister-in-law Jackie Parente of Westampton, her brother Michael Parente of Palm Springs, California, her sister Bonnie Johnson and brother-in-law Greg Johnson of Joliet, Ill., nephew Robert Strang III and wife Kaitlyn Kohlhepp Strang, niece Laura Strang and fiancé Silas Wood, nephew Ashton Johnson and niece Jessica Johnson. Funeral services will be held privately. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions made to the St. Katharine Drexel Parish, St. Paul Church, 223 E. Union St., Burlington, NJ 08016 would be appreciated by her family. Arrangements are under the direction of the Page Funeral Home, Burlington where messages of sympathy may be sent to her family through www.pagefuneralhome.com.
