Elaine M. Weisz nee Katz (Minah bas Aaron HaKohen) was born January 8th, 1928, and peacefully left this world May 4th, 2024 at the age of 96. She is survived by her four children, Lee (Karen), Alan (Elaine) Keith (Andie) and Jan Somers (Mark), sister Della Robinson (Richard) and brother Lester Katz. She also leaves behind her eight grandchildren and nine great grandchildren, many nieces and nephews and friends who she touched with her kindness and grace. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 72 years Edgar, her parents Aaron and Malvina Katz. Mom spent her life dedicated to family. Whether visiting her parents on the south side, going to "the farm" on Sundays to visit Edgar's family or having everyone to the house, the sound of laughter and children playing always filled the air. Her home was always open to anyone who did not have a place to be for a holiday. The small house they lived in for over 70 years always had beautiful flower gardens that she loved to tend, artwork and family photos. She was a special beautiful person both inside and out and will be missed by all who had the privilege to know her. The family wishes to thank all the wonderful care givers who took care of her in her final years. Services Monday, May 6th at 12 Noon at Chicago Jewish Funerals, 195 N. Buffalo Grove Rd, (One block north of Lake Cook Road) in Buffalo Grove followed by internment at Shalom Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions to the Jewish Charity of your choice will be appreciated. Arrangements by Chicago Jewish Funerals – Buffalo Grove Chapel, 847.229.8822,

We always enjoyed spending time with Elaine and the entire Weisz family. Elaine was such a caring and giving person. We remember Elaine's love of beautiful flowers and gardens and we truly enjoyed spending time with her at our house and enjoying the outdoors together. We also enjoyed all of the family holidays and events we were able to spend together. May her memory be a blessing to all that knew her.

Loved those family gatherings at her home! Aunt Elaine was so wonderful about keeping up with all of the family events by checking in and updating herself about all of us in the Weisz family! I will miss her!!

I will always remember Aunt Elaine’s kindness and love, as she welcomed me into the family and gave of herself so generously. There was always an extra chair at the holiday table, and she never failed to stay in touch, asking questions and remembering details about my life well into her later years. I will hold her memory close.

Aunt Elaine saw me and loved me unconditionally. She called me at least monthly for most of my adult life. She cared for me and had my back like no other. She saw my heart and always gave me the space to share. I felt heard, understood and I always received the benefit of doubt before judgement. A scarce gift. She shared her holiday table with us for many years and made me feel like I belonged to this family. Her passing has left a chasm. I loved her and she is missed.

I loved Aunt Elaine. She was always so interested in what was happening in my life. I have so many memories of holidays in Lincolnwood that will stay with me forever. I planted some flowers in my pots in her memory.

So sorry Alan about your mom’s passing. Celebrate her life. I’m sure, like me, you feel orphaned when both parents are gone. She raised her children so well to set examples of L’dor V’dor. May her memory be a blessing and be bound in the house of the Lord forever. I will talk to you along the way.

I’m sorry I never got to meet her, but heard about her, your dad and the other Weisz cousins all my life from my dad (their cousin, Samuel). One time, my dad got sick when he was visiting, and she took care of him. He was very grateful. So sorry to hear she passed away.
