Elaine M. Bixby, 83
Elaine M. (Landeck) Bixby, 83, passed away Feb. 18, 2019 at Life Care Center of the North Shore in Lynn with her loving family by her side.
Born in Haverhill, she was the daughter of the late Raymond C. and Edith M. (Homan) Landeck. Raised and educated in Haverhill, she was a graduate of Haverhill High School, Class of 1951. She also attended Northern Essex Community College.
Elaine was a familiar face in Haverhill, working at Building 19 for 23 years with an unmatched work ethic. She enjoyed traveling to Mexico every year and loved the beach. Elaine loved watching mystery TV shows and movies. She was an avid football fan and enjoyed rooting for her favorite team, the New England Patriots. Her idea of a perfect meal was a tasty margarita and a plate of nachos, as well as a hot dog with mustard and onions. She liked all genres of music with a special fondness for jazz standards and upbeat dance music, with Ella Fitzgerald and ABBA as her favorites.
Elaine was a kind-hearted, generous, and loving woman with a cheery personality, a feisty attitude, who will be remembered for her warm smile, her infectious laugh and always wanting to dance. A devoted mother and sister, she will be missed by all who knew and loved her. Her family would like to thank everyone at Life Care Center of the North Shore for the excellent care, kindness and respect she received over the three years she spent there.
Elaine is survived by her daughter, Christina M. Lambroukos and her fiancé Nick Demakes of Lynn; her sister, Sandra Lawrence and her spouse Alix Gordon of Medford; beloved cousins, Barbara Zins and Carol Zins of Ware, Laura Holland and her husband Ed Desrochers of Atkinson, N.H., Diane Rose of Deltona, Fla., Richard Donovan and his wife Sandy of Garland, Maine, Mary Carlson of Groveland; dear family friends, Lawrence Dufrense of Methuen and Lydia Capano of Medford.
