Elaine Marie Schwab, 82, passed away Sunday, May 5, 2019 at Saint Mary’s Home East.

She was born in Erie on December 2, 1936 daughter of the late Elmer and Ruth (Pongratz) Schwab.

Elaine attended Sacred Heart Grade School, Villa Maria Academy, Mercyhurst College, and Penn State University for post graduate school.

Elaine taught at Irving and Harding Elementary Schools. She was a guidance counselor and Director of Elementary Education for the Erie School District, retiring in 1989. Elaine served two terms as President for the Alpha Iota Chapter Delta Kappa Gamma Society. She loved traveling and was an avid reader. She was grateful for her many friends, who were always there giving her help and support. She cherished each and every one of them.

Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by her partner of 30 years, Anthony (Tone) Mucciarone.

Over the years she became a very special part in the lives of Nora Levinson, Mark Mucciarone, and Chris Mucciaroni as well as the lives of their children and grandchildren. Her never ending thoughtfulness will never be forgotten by her family.
