Elaine Silverman- Cohen passed suddenly on October 4, 2022.

As a 40 year resident of Santa Barbara, she graduated from UCSB and went on to become a well respected paralegal working for family law firms. She was well respected in the legal arena, and worked long hours to make a difference to those who counted on her.

Elaine was the foundation in her immediate family and did everything.
She not only worked but she also volunteered for years at her son Seth’s elementary school, Monte Vista . She was known as the crossing guard and room teacher for many years. Everyone who encountered her help was amazed at her work ethic and funny sense of humor.

Elaine was born Feb 2, 1960 into a big loving Jewish home in Reseda, Ca.
She spent her formative years, with brothers Lynn and Jay by her side .

If you ever tasted her cooking you were blessed. She was hands down the best scratch chef I knew. Always lending a hand in the kitchen.  Never fear Elaine’s here at a house bbque or Passover Seder.  She was the best ! She always made it look so easy!

She enjoyed her animals , and making beautiful needlepoint.

Elaine’s son, Seth was the light of her life and nothing was more important than her giving him the life he had.

She was the consummate mother !

Elaine is survived by her son Seth, husband Bill, brothers Lynn H. Silverman, Jay E . Silverman . All the nieces Cora, Clara , Isabelle, Siena, Cousins Josh , Jonathan and Jair Swartz.

Elaine was a wonderful giving selfless mother, daughter, aunt, wife, sister, and friend. Actually Elaine was the older sister I never had. While you may be gone in physical body, your spirit remains in all who knew and loved you. See you on the other side my dear friend! We love and miss you.
