Elaine Campanale

May 5, 1951 — April 21, 2023

Elaine Campanale, 71, of Little River, SC, and former longtime resident of Worcester, passed away April 21, 2023, due to complications of a stroke. Born to the late Anthony “Champ” and Matilda “Tillie” Campanale, she was the wife of Norm Sczepanski. She was the beloved mother of Tricia Kirwin and Jennifer Mitchell and leaves four grandchildren: Felicia Campanale and her fiancé Ocean Mueller, Nick and Angelo Kirwin, and Brandon Flagg. A brother, Jack Campanale, several nieces and nephews, good friends Lucille “Lu” Covello and Ellen Griffin, and her beloved bulldog Brady also survive her. Along with her parents, Elaine was predeceased by a brother, Gene Campanale.

Elaine worked for many years as a nurse, beginning her career at City Hospital and working her way up to a career that took her all over the country as a nurse consulting with long-term care facilities. Her passion truly was to help others. Elaine finally fulfilled her dream of retiring to South Carolina, where she could enjoy the beach and warmer weather, as well as spending more time with her pets overlooking her lighthouse on her porch. She enjoyed playing bingo and perusing antique shops and was a wonderful grandmother.
