Juliette Elaine Winfield Downes Arena of Orange passed away at home surrounded by her loving family on Wednesday, September 27, 2017. She was 91 years old.
For twenty-two years Elaine was Finance Manager of the Town of Orange Visiting Nurse Association. After retirement, she was a dedicated volunteer for many years, most particularly as an IRS-AARP income tax preparer for the city of West Haven Senior Center. She had also volunteered with Orange VNA at their monthly blood pressure clinics for many years.
The blood pressure clinics are offered on the fourth Thursday of every month from 1 to 2 p.m. at the OVNA. This clinic offers residents an opportunity to have their blood pressure monitored or to receive information and counseling on health-related matters. The sessions are held by a Registered Nurse (RN) and/or a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). The screenings are free and no appointment is necessary.
