Elaine C. Pipoly McNally, 77, peacefully entered eternal heavenly rest on January 28, 2020, surrounded by her loved ones in her Boardman home.
Elaine was born February 3, 1942, in Youngstown, the daughter of the late James E. Pipoly and Sophie A. Pipoly, nee Tofil.
A 1960 graduate of Cardinal Mooney High School, Elaine fronted the marching band as a majorette. Later in life she would entertain her children and grandchildren by twirling her baton. Upon graduation, Elaine was employed by the Social Security Administration for over 44 years, performing various roles in both the Youngstown and Warren offices throughout her career. She cherished the relationships she developed with her colleagues over the span of her career.
Elaine was an active member of St. Christine Catholic Church where she found peace through the Lord and weekly liturgies.
Elaine was a devoted mother who too often subordinated her personal interests to promote the interests of her children. She loved spending time with her family, especially holidays, vacations, and lazy summer poolside cookouts at her home. Her beagle, Carlee, was her most steadfast and loving companion. Elaine also enjoyed dancing, movies, football, travelling with friends, and the beauty of Mill Creek Park where she had innumerable memories from childhood throughout her life. In retirement, she frequently volunteered to roll pierogies at St. Stanislaus Kostka Catholic Church.
She will be remembered by her four children, Kimberly (Bob) Habuda-Greene of Youngstown, James (Rachel) Habuda of Boardman, Sherry (Kevin) Habuda Krohn of Fort Belvoir, VA, Ryan (Erin) McNally of Dearborn, MI; ten grandchildren, two great grandchildren, her sister, Marilyn (David) Brenner of Canfield and many nieces and nephews.
Elaine was preceded in death by her parents, sister Anita Porter, and brother James G. Pipoly.
Arrangements are being handled by the Edward J. Fox & Sons Funeral Home 4700 Market St. Boardman. Family and friends will be received at calling hours, from 5 to 8: 00 PM Friday January 31, 2020, and Saturday morning at the Church from 9 to 9:45 a.m.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held 10 a.m. Saturday February 1, 2020 celebrated by Rev. Leo Wehrlin at St. Christine Catholic Church 3165 S. Schenley Ave. Youngstown .
Interment will be at Calvary Cemetery, following the mass.
