Beth Shalom Cemetery, 1501 Anderson Road, (Shaler Township) Pittsburgh 15209

ELAINE GOETZ: On Wednesday, June 28, 2023, at 89, after a long struggle with Lewy Body Dementia. Most recently of Boca Raton, FL, previously of Pittsburgh, and originally from Brooklyn, NY. Pre-deceased by Mel Goetz, her much-missed devoted husband of 44 years. Survived by her children, Carolyn (Jay) Gornitzky and Kenneth (Katharine) Goetz, and by four grandchildren, Randy (Lisa) and Alex (Carolyn) Gornitzky and Rebecca (Paul Ryberg) and Jennifer Goetz. She recently became what she most longed for: a great-grandma (a g-g!) when the family welcomed Wesley Emmet (Randy and Lisa) and Elliana Mary (Alex and Carolyn). Born in Brooklyn, she received a BA at the University of Pittsburgh and an MA in education at Duquesne University. She taught elementary grades as a substitute and later taught English as a Second Language through the Allegheny Intermediate Unit. She loved playing tennis and golf and when arthritis put an end to those sports she turned to bridge. Graveside Service and Interment will be held on Sunday at 11 AM at Beth Shalom Cemetery. Contributions may be made to American Cancer Society, PO Box 862, Carnegie , PA 15106. Arrangements entrusted to Ralph Schugar Chapel, Inc., family owned and operated. www.schugar.com
