With heavy hearts, we share the news of the passing of Elaine Lofchick, the heart and soul of our family. She was the love of her husband Bernie Lofchick’s life and was predeceased by her parents, Rae and Jimmy Gobuty, and daughter, Myra Lofchick. Elaine is survived and deeply loved by her brother, Michael Gobuty, and her children, Mindy and David (Michelle) Lofchick, as well as her grandchildren, Sharonne (James) Katz, Michael Topf, Courtney (Andrew), Daniel, Arielle Lofchick, and Rachel Jones, and great-grandchildren, Amalya and Eliana Katz. She is beloved by all of her nieces and nephews.
Elaine was a one-of-a-kind – a natural performer who loved nothing more than putting on a show. Whether dressing up like a clown or pranking her family members, Elaine always had a way of not only captivating an audience but creating stories to be told for years to come.
In addition to her love for the theater, Elaine adored nothing more than gathering her loved ones around the table for Shabbat dinners. She was known for her delicious chicken soup, matzoh balls, and anything covered in garlic. Every meal she would discuss plans for the next, a funny quirk that everyone in the family would laugh at as they enjoyed their meals.
Elaine was also deeply charitable. She was always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need and was a dedicated supporter of Sertoma and Rosh Pina Sisterhood and the Children’s Hospital throughout her life. We are grateful for the love and kindness she showed to others, and we will continue to honor her memory by carrying on her legacy of generosity and compassion.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Home Instead for their compassionate care and assistance during this difficult time. Special thanks to Rispha and Erlinda for their exceptional kindness and dedication.
Elaine will be deeply missed by all who knew her. She leaves behind a legacy of love, belly-aching laughter, generosity, and delicious food that will be remembered for generations to come.
Funeral service was held at Congregation Etz Chayim on December 23, 2022.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Lofchick Fund at the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba, the JNF, or a charity of your choice.
