Elaine Izaks nee Moss, age 91. Beloved wife of the late Yale. Loving mother of Lori and Raphael Lavin, Marla and Morton Zwick. Proud grandmother of Benjamin and Marisa Lavin. She was the last survivor of the Moss siblings: Millie, Jerry, and Paul. Cherished aunt and adored friend to countless many. To say Elaine was an inspiration is inadequate-beautiful, witty, kind, generous, smart-those words only touch the tip of the iceberg. In order to keep everyone safe, services will be private. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to North Shore Auxiliary of JCFS Chicago, 3145 W. Pratt Blvd., Chicago, IL 60645.

My deepest condolences-Elaine was a beautiful person, both inside and out. I had the pleasure of first meeting Elaine (so many years ago) when Marla and I were in college together. Elaine was so engaging and welcoming and a plasure to be with.

Lisa and I are so sad to hear about Elaine.
We loved spending time with her in Long Boat Key and Highland Park. She was a beautiful, kind woman and will be missed greatly.

Marla please accept my condolences. Your mom was my favorite of all Bunny Tasner's friends. She was a wonderful person, always interested in hearing about what was going on in the lives of others, and always had a smile and a hug whenever I saw her.

I knew Elaine from Birchwood. A few years ago when my twins were 4 they fell instantly in love with her and followed her everywhere, always hugging her or sitting on her lap. Each summer they looked forward to seeing her and interrupting her while she did her water aerobics! She will be missed! Our love and conferences to the family. May her memory be a blessing.

Aunt Elaine, always elegant and full of life, you will be so missed by all who were privileged to know you. We spoke just last week and you were just about to play canasta. My last words to you were I love you. You were beloved by all.

Dear Aunt Elaine,

Thank you for all the fond memories. I will cherish all memories of my childhood Thanksgiving dinners and all of the great skin care advice you gave me over the years! You were always impeccable in every way and always so kind. You will be greatly missed. ❤
