Elaine Elizabeth Sisia, age 75, passed away on March 3, 2022. Elaine was born in Queens, New York on September 10, 1946 to Sylvester and Elizabeth Steckler. On October 5,1975 she married the love of her life, John Sisia. They were married for 32 years before John passed away in 2007. They had two children Elizabeth Sisia and Paul Sisia.

Elaine loved her family deeply. She always enjoyed cooking and entertaining. She worked for many years at Belk, where many of her coworkers became her adopted family. She had a warmth about her that made everyone feel welcome.

Elaine is survived by her daughter, Elizabeth Sisia and her son, Paul Sisia. Perhaps the greatest joy in Elaine’s life were her two grandsons, Aiden and Landon Benoit. Elaine loved being their Nana, and she was so incredibly proud of “her boys”. Elaine is also survived by her sisters, Elizabeth Stryker and Barbara Lewis of New York and her brother James Steckler of Texas. Elaine also had three sisters in law that she shared a very special bond with, Annemarie Mallin of Arizona and Mary Eggert and Valerie Sorontino of New York. She is also survived by many cousins as well as nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank everyone for their love and support during this incredibly difficult time.

A time of visitation for family and friends will be held on Thursday, March 10, 2022 from the hours of 6PM till 8PM, at the Wilmington Funeral Chapel.

    She was such a joy to be around, especially at all the parties and barbecues at Governor's Square. Always a funny story to share and compare with me about the boys and our girls. She will be sorely missed. Hugs and kisses to you all.
