Elaine A. Falcone, age 85, passed away the evening of October 5, 2020. Elaine was one of seven children born to Anthony and Carmella (nee Cristi) Falcone residing in Southwest Philadelphia. She devoted herself to caring for her parents until their deaths. Elaine always loved and gave to everyone she knew. Her welcoming spirit could be felt as soon as you entered Pagano's Restaurant at 38th & Chestnut Sts. in West Philadelphia, University City, where she was a hostess for over 30 very happy years. To all her friends children, she referred to them as her nieces and nephews. Her overall warmth and kindness made her easy to love.
Elaine is survived by her loving sister RoseAnn Portner. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins and many beloved friends. She is predeceased by her parents, and five of her siblings: Emily Racciatti, Frances Nardello, Americo Falcone, Alfhonse Falcone and Maria Hillman
