In Memoriam

Elaine Kagan

Elaine, like her husband and children, was a unique woman and well ahead of her time. She had four children while married to Jack, and raised them often on her own since Jack was committed to his business and earning enough to support them all. Their marriage was tempestuous and ended in divorce in 1968 after the children were grown. Elaine began a successful career in real estate, and grew truly independent. Elaine sadly passed away in 2003.

Andrea Kagan Howe

Andrea was the youngest of Jack’s four children. A strong swimmer as a young woman, and a headstrong independent self-starter as an adult, she worked in numerous jobs to support herself and her son, John.  Andrea fell ill and sadly passed away in 2015.
