Elaine Friel: She Will Be Greatly Missed


The staff at CAS would like to let our friends know about the loss of our dear staff member Elaine Friel. Elaine passed away this past Saturday at St. Vincent’s Hospital.  We are very saddened by this loss and she will be greatly missed.  

Elaine served in various staff capacities at Children's Aid for more than 20 years. In her most recent years, she worked with our Alabama Pre/Post Adoption Connections (APAC) program and served as our IT Coordinator and volunteer photographer. She was known by the APAC campers as “Ms. Elaine” and was the one responsible for the fabulous videos at the end of each camp session. 

Funeral services are Thursday, January 12 at Vestavia Hills Methodist Church, with visitation from 1pm to 3pm. A memorial service will be held at 3pm. 

Though she has departed life on this earth as we know it, her spirit will live on with us for years to come.


Please feel free to leave a comment celebrating memories you may have of Elaine. We will ensure they are given to her husband Bill and her family.

Elaine always had a smile on her face and a gadget in her hand - a passion we shared! We were kindred spirits in all things IT and I will miss swapping stories about those who struggle to copy & paste :-)

I will always remember Elaine fondly. Usually it was behind a camera where I am most comfortable! She had a warm sense about her and a great sense of humor. I am saddened to hear of her sudden loss. I wish her family and friends much peace and blessing in her memory! Michelle Bearman-Wolnek

Elaine was a dear, kind soul. She will be greatly missed by friends, family, co-workers, and Camp APAC children. She was a gift from
God.

It is hard to imagine a world without Elaine, and especially, a Children's Aid Society without her. What a smart, funny and dedicated woman she was...and a great Auburn fan! She will be missed.

It's a very sad day today, as we say goodbye to our friend. Although I've only known Elaine for the past year, she made a lasting impact on my life with her ever encouraging words and positively supportive smile. My inbox has several messages that remain of her kindness and love. I will miss her.

What a joy it has been to know Elaine! She was incredibly dedicated to her work at CAS, but more importantly, she was always patient and kind to those around her. I pray that the love and peace of Christ would fill those in her family and among her friends.
