ERATH — On Saturday, July 18, 2015 at 3:59 p.m., after a long fight with cancer, Elaine Robin Harrington, age 68, peacefully passed away in her home with her family by her side. In honor of her wishes, there will be no public memorial service.
Elaine grew up in Abbeville, LA and graduated from Mount Carmel Catholic School. After completing nursing school in Boston, MA, she returned home as an LPN and spent the next 45 years doing what she loved. She made her home in Erath and most of her nursing years were spent at Abbeville General Hospital where she earned a reputation as being kind, caring and hard working. Her smile could light up a room and she was loved by all who knew her.
Survivors include one daughter, Rebecca LaSalle Cano and her husband Robert of Erath; one son, Slaton LaSalle of Erath; one stepdaughter, Roxanne Burnette and her husband Bill of Abbeville; six grandchildren, Dustin Hymel, Holly Hymel, Ridge LaSalle, Audrey Burnette, Mateo Cano and Hayden LaSalle; one brother, Murphy Robin, Jr. of Abbeville; first husband and good friend, Ricky J. LaSalle and wife Jacqueline of Erath; second husband of 27 years, George J. Harrington; uncle and close friend Jules Vitte of Arnaudville; four nephews, three nieces, several lifelong close friends and extended family.
She was preceded in death by her mother Rose Olivier Duhon of Abbeville; her father Murphy Robin, Sr. of Abbeville; one sister Dianna Pere of Delcambre and one brother Mitchell Robin.
The family wishes to express special thanks and love to Mr. and Mrs. Gene and Sandra Touchet and Sandra McKinney, whose constant care and support made our last days with our mother very special. Also, to Carmen Romero, whose deep love, affection and big hugs always brought a smile to mom’s face; and to Heart of Hospice and their amazing nurse Robin Broussard. There are no words to express our gratitude for your service. God bless you all.
