Elaine S. McKinney

January 18, 1947 ~ July 19, 2020 (age 73)


Elaine S. McKinney, 73, of Ridley Park, Pa passed away on July 19, 2020. She was predeceased by her parents Raymond & Helen (Ward) McKinney and her brother Robert.

Elaine was a graduate of Ridley High School where she was Senior Prom Queen. She was a stay at home Mom who took pride in being present for her children as they were growing up. She spent time volunteering in abused women’s shelters in Pennsylvania and also spent some time volunteering as a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) for abused and neglected children in Los Angeles County. Elaine was always a caretaker by nature so it was no surprise to her family when she decided to move from her home in California back to Pennsylvania to take care of her father.  She took immense pride in the care she provided for him several years before his passing. Ridley was her home and where she resided the last 14 years near her brothers, sister in laws and several nieces and nephews whom she loved dearly. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.

Elaine was the beloved mother of Suzanne Calderon, Michael & Scott Cole, adoring grandmother to 8 beautiful grandchildren, loving sister of Christine McKinney, Raymond & Wayne McKinney and wonderful aunt to her nieces and nephews.
