Elaine F. Loiselle, age 61, of Woburn; a loving wife, mother, and grandmother; passed away after a yearlong battle with pancreatic cancer. Daughter of the late Madeline V. (Clark) and John W. Heslin, Elaine studied at the University of Lowell where she met the love of her life, John P. Loiselle. Elaine and John married in 1980.
Elaine is survived by her beloved husband of 40 years, John Loiselle; son Christopher, his wife Lisa, and their daughters Ava and Annie of Reading; son Timothy, his wife Laura, and their daughter Piper of North Billerica; and son Matthew of Woburn. Daughter-in-law of Agnes E. (Salem) (Loiselle) Mastrogiacomo. She is also survived by siblings Eileen Dixon and her husband John, Elizabeth Heslin, John W. Heslin Jr., and Erin Heslin, all of Woburn, as well as many nieces and nephews.
Elaine`s teenage employment included a position at, what was at the time, the new Showcase Cinema. After the University of Lowell, her career was in accounting and finance, including a position at the Woburn Council of Social Concern. Elaine was proudest of being a mother to her three sons. Her high school cheerleading experience served her well as she cheered her sons on at high school and college fields throughout New England. Elaine was always a vocal, loving, supportive, protective presence in her sons` lives and the lives of her three grandchildren.
Elaine knew how to enjoy herself in any setting, be it a vacation on a beach in Aruba or a benefit at a local social club. Being a music and sports fan, Elaine never passed up an opportunity to attend either live event; but the true joy of those events came from experiencing them with her loved ones. She was quick to laugh and always looked to raise the spirits of those around her. More than anything, Elaine treasured her family vacations at Seabrook Beach, NH and in Aruba. Her enthusiasm for life was apparent to all who met her and she was always present for those who needed her.
The Loiselle family would like to thank Dr. Douglas Rubinson and the team at DFCI, Good Shepherd Hospice staff members, as well as friends and family for their support during this difficult journey.
