Obituary of Elaine Thelma Zipkin

Elaine Thelma (Schultz) Zipkin, 88, of Vineland, passed away on May 21, 2017. Elaine was born in Newark, NJ to the late Lillian (Wasserman) and Abraham Jacob Schultz on June 19, 1928. She grew up in Newark and graduated with honors from South Side High, Class of 1945. In September 1949 she married Jesse "George" Zipkin, together they were part of a close knit Community, and raised their family. The joy of Elaine's life were her beloved children, Alan and Juliann Zipkin of Rockville Centre, NY and Merle and Dr. Seth Silver of Port Elizabeth, NJ; her loving grandchildren, Major Joshua and Dana Silver, Aaron and Jessica Silver, Nathan Silver, Dr. Andrew Zipkin and Dr. Erica Secor and Lauren Zipkin; her treasured great-granddaughters, Samantha and Victoria Silver, as well as nieces nephews and cousins.

Elaine raised her family in New Milford, NJ where she resided with her late husband George from 1956 until his passing in 2009. At the insistence of her family, she moved to Vineland in January of 2010 to be close to her family and start her life anew. Elaine loved the news, reading the NY Times, Jeopardy, crossword puzzles, but most especially she loved playing Scrabble with friends and family. Elaine loved the written word and keeping abreast of local and national as well as international affairs. Her lasting legacy is her family. May her memory forever be a blessing.
