In Memory

It is with a heavy heart that the Pelham Parkway Neighborhood Association announce the passing of one of its founding members, Elaine Feder.

Elaine was a resident of the Pelham Parkway community for the past 69 years. She was a former State Committeewoman of the 80th A.D., treasurer of our association and a staunch community activist. She was also a member of the Allerton-Pelham Parkway Civilian Patrol. As many of you will remember she was a staff member for Senator Jeff Klein when he was an assemblyman and had his office on Lydig Avenue.

Elaine was always willing to help anyone with a problem no matter what it took. She will be sorely missed by many and will always be in our hearts.

A Memorial Service to celebrate her life will be held on Saturday, August 15, at 1 p.m. at the Bronx House,990 Pelham Parkway South.
