We are sad to announce the passing of Elaine Marie Dickman Michalski of Bayonne, New Jersey on February 1, 2023 after a year long battle with cancer.
Elaine was born on September 4, 1951 to parents Wallace and Elizabeth (Glazewski) Dickman in Staten Island, New York where she spent her life until moving to Bayonne in 2000. Elaine attended Port Richmond High School. Elaine went on to work on the assembly line at General Motors assembling automobiles for 27 years until retiring in 1998.
In 1986, Elaine met her husband Robert Michalski who predeceased her in 2018.
Elaine was the beloved mother of Sherri Ann LaMantia and cherished grandmother of Alexa Elizabeth Sarcone. She was also fond of their dog Nova.
Elaine is survived by many siblings who include: Elizabeth Scott (John), Sandra Dickman, Catherine Cozzo (Phil) and Robert Dickman (Sharon). She is predeceased by her sister Darlene Holbert. Elaine is survived by many nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews. Elaine was especially close to her cousin Kristine Pettinato and Mary Glazewski. Elaine was also close to her friend Angela Cummings.
Elaine was a mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, godmother and friend to so many. She was a helping hand to everyone. We will greatly miss her. Elaine enjoyed trips to Atlantic City as well going out with the girls.

Elaine will be missed . Many wonderful memories…like when we went to AC & she was driving home and said she couldn’t see that her eyes were getting bad…”Hey Elaine -turn on your headlights”…”Oh that’s much better”..We laughed so hard we almost peed…And when my dad was alive and took us upstate and one of my sisters went down the pool slide and broke her bathing suit top right off in the pool. She was quite the stunner .Growing up I thought she was like Barbie with the can rollers in her hair. So much fun we had. Elaine was a tremendous cook ,just like Betsy. She will always be remembered and loved. Elaine and Phil let me be Sherri’s godmother even though I wasn’t strong enough in 5th grade to hold her through the whole baptism ceremony.Love you Elaine & Sherri and Lexi

Elaine and I were cousins, but FRIENDS first. I will miss her so much. She was always a kind and caring person, and I will never forget her. Love you Elaine
Dear Sherri, Lexi and the Dickman/Glazewski family, So sorry for the loss of Elaine, but happy to have known her. When we were little she was our constant baby sitter and cool big cousin. She taught me how to dance, dried my tears, took us places… covered my ears if she thought song lyrics were inappropriate lol. She was always kind and cared how everyone was. Love and prayers for all of us as we say good bye. We were lucky to have her and we will see her again.

Elaine an I met in the hospital in 1997. We hit it off right away and have been great friends ever since. I will miss our long talks. We loved complaining to each other we new no one else would listen to us. We didn’t get to see each other as much as we would have liked to but we had the phone. We laughed alot. We always used to say thank God for the telephone. Elaine I love you I miss you. Sherri, Alexa, I am so sorry for you loss. Elaine loved you both we her while heart.
So sorry to hear of Elaines passing. I remember her first day at GM. Very kind person RIP Elaine.
