Elaine Polikarpus, age 77, of Toms River, NJ, died in her home September 26th, 2022, from cancer. She was born December 3rd, 1944 in Mount Holly, NJ, the second daughter of Woodrow and Yolanda Carpenter. Elaine lived most of her life in Ocean County, devoted to raising two sons, Kaius and Paavo, and to the care of others through her chosen profession of nursing.
