Elaine Scaletta LoBue

As a family we are asking for help to celebrate the life of our Mother, Elaine Scaletta LoBue. She was a Chicago Crossing Guard for the 47th ward for many years and was married to our Father for 44 years. When he passed away in 2004, you could only imagine the pain she felt losing the love of her life and has been lost ever since. Shortly after that she was diagnosed with dementia and has progressively gotten worse over the years. During that time she allowed her life insurance to lapse and didn’t tell any of us. She now also suffers from congestive heart failure, with only 10% of her heart working the doctors have given her a maximum of 3 months to live.Unfortunately there are no plots available near our Father. The only available option is to do a stackable grave. The total quote for everything that is included  is $15,000. Any help is greatly appreciated.
She will leave behind 5 children, 17 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren. 
Once again we thank you for your help.
