Elena Kapelus, age 70, passed away on Saturday, August 11, 2018.

She was born in Wilmington and was the daughter of the late Rocco and Ann Renzetti. Elena was a Pre-school teacher at St. Anthony of Padua School for 15 years, retiring in 2006.

Throughout her life, her children were her main priority. She spent countless hours running from one sporting event to the next. Even in later years, she would go when her children were coaching to show her support. Elena also loved to go dancing, whether it was kicking up her heels to a country line dance or twisting the night away with her husband.

She is survived by her husband of 11 years, Michael Kapelus; 3 children, Jeffery Williamson, Patrick Williamson (Jennifer) and Angela Grandrino (Christopher), all of Wilmington; 3 step-children, Jennifer Kapelus of Philadelphia, Michael Kapelus (Elizabeth) of Pennsauken, NJ and Nicole Golden (Scott) of Berlin, NJ; 3 siblings, Rocco Renzetti, Leona Degregory and Ann Tasker (Richard Pellak), all of Wilmington; 10 grandchildren.

A viewing will be held on Thursday, August 16, 2018 from 9:00am to 11:00am at Ss. Peter and Paul Ukrainian Orthodox Church, 1406 Philadelphia Pike, Wilmington, where a funeral service will follow at 11:00am. Burial will be private.
