Elva Diamond

Elva Diamond, 95, formerly from Camden and Pennsauken and more recently from Cherry Hill NJ, passed away peacefully at her home on August 4, 2022. Wife of the late Joseph H. Diamond, she is survived by her son Mark (Dora) Diamond, daughter Rachel/Rusty Diamond (Gary Smith), granddaughters Lauren (Brett) Bessler and Cara Diamond, and sister Elaine Marcus.

Elva lived a long, wonderful life, always surrounded by her family & friends. She loved holiday meals, games of skill, vacations, and conversations with anyone and everyone.

Elva was always available to cook up a batch of her famous chocolate chip cookies or prepare her amazing chicken soup and matzoh balls. Elva and Joe were fortunate enough to travel the world, but she would have gladly traded it all to sit around the Passover table one more time with her family while Joe led the service. Elva loved going to Atlantic City, taking a cruise or visiting any place there might be a slot machine. Elva was always ready for a game of mah-jongg or cards, and dining out with her friends.

Elva remained active her entire life and lived her life to its fullest. She will be sadly missed by all, especially her family.
