Elaine Jewel Vogel was called home to God on April 13, 2018. She was predeceased by her parents Anton and Antoinette Vogel, a brother, Norman and her dear friend of many years Rosemary Savino.
Elaine grew up in New Jersey spending her childhood summers in Manasquan. Upon graduating from Cornell University in 1958 she was employed at Hahne & Co in Newark and shortly became a buyer. Leaving there she owned and managed the Osprey Hotel at the Manasquan beach.
In 1964 Elaine felt called to work for God and entered the order of the Sisters of Good Shepherd in New York working in their programs to help adolescent girls who needed assistance. She was encouraged to take her Master's degree in Public Administration at NYU, graduating with honors as valedictorian.
After nearly 20 years of service she returned to the secular life and to the Jersey Shore working there for awhile in real estate. In 1997 she moved to Four Seasons at Wall and was very involved in community activities. She served as President of the Board of Trustees for two terms guiding the community through the difficulties of transition. She was blessed with many friendships and will be deeply missed.
