For Elaine Monroe

Thu, 10/19/2023 - 10:12

A celebration of the life of Elaine Monroe, who died at home in Manhattan on Oct. 15, 2022, will be held on Saturday at 2 p.m. at the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Chapel on Madison Avenue in Manhattan.

Ms. Monroe, who sold French antiques at her store, Decorum, in Amagansett for many years, was 87 at the time of her death. Before starting Decorum, she worked as a buyer of designer fashions for Bloomingdale’s and Sears. Her shop closed about six years ago.

Ms. Monroe was born in North Attleborough, Mass., on Sept. 17, 1935, to Edward F. Monroe and the former Miriam E. McEvoy. A sister, Cynthia Lee Monroe of Manhattan, survives her, and has suggested memorial donations to a charity of one’s choice.
