Pastor Elaine Solomon

BIRTH: 08/11/1933

DEATH: 12/31/2018

On December 31, 2018 Pastor Elaine Solomon of Beaver Falls, formerly of Red Hook, Brooklyn, NY went home to be with her Lord and Savior while a resident of Beaver Valley Nursing and Rehab.

She was born August 11, 1933, one of 8 daughters to the late Frazier and Daisy Green of Manhattan, NY.

Those who knew Elaine knew how much she loved the Lord and her heart was pure. Her door was always open to anyone. She would give you the shirt off her back, the shoes off her feet, and a belt when needed.  Senior Minister and Pastor Elaine Solomon’s training for ministry began when she came to the House of the Lord Church and worked as secretary to the National Presiding Minister.  After answering the call of God for her life and completing the ordination process, she relocated to Beaver Falls where she served as Pastor of the Beaver Falls House of the Lord congregation for 35 years.  Pastor Elaine was the Pastoral Counselor at Gateway Rehabilitation Center where she ministered to drug addicts and alcoholics for 16 years. She has been an advocate for the One to One Citizen Advocacy, where she served as a voice and friend of a disabled person.  She was a prayer counselor with Women Aglow and a former licensed specialized care foster parent for Lutheran Youth and Family Services, where she cared for, loved, and nurtured troubled teens for 10 years.  She also taught bible study at Circle of Friends Senior Center and was a board member of Best Friends.

She was united in holy matrimony to Lester Lloyd Solomon Sr.  This union was blessed with 5 children.  Her husband preceded her in death on October 17, 1994. She was also preceded in death by two daughters, Cheryl Solomon and Leslie Solomon; and her 7 sisters, Hazel, Gretna, Vera, Millie, Rose, Audrey and Shirley.

Her beautiful life will be forever cherished in the lives of her children, Lester Lloyd Solomon Jr. and his wife Dottie of Virginia Beach, VA, Kevin Rodney Solomon of Pittsburgh and Wanda Solomon of Beaver Falls; grandchildren, Rodney Solomon, Keyva Solomon, Kenneth Solomon, Khaliah Solomon, Jelani Solomon, Lia Wiley, Imani Solomon, Ayende Solomon, Akiel Solomon, all of Beaver Falls, Shira Solomon and Cherise Solomon of Willingboro, NJ, and Derrick Brown of New London, CT; 19 great-grandchildren; 4 great-great grandchildren; and a host of relatives, friends, and clergy.

Friends will be received on Friday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. in the GABAUER-LUTTON FUNERAL HOME & CREMATION SERVICES, INC., 1117 Fifth Ave., Beaver Falls, gabauerfamilyfuneralhomes.com. She will lie in state on Saturday from 9:30 a.m. until the time of service at 11 a.m. in the First Presbyterian Church, 1103 8th Avenue, Beaver Falls.

Interment will follow in Beaver Falls Cemetery.

Our deepest condolences and prayers to the family and friends of Pastor Solomon. You have deeply touched my life (Maria) in the times that I have been around you and also heard your message! You truly had a heart for the Lord and spread the TRUTH of His word. I am forever thankful for the impact you have had on my life. I trust you are enjoying the presence of the Lord now. ❤️

My heart is broken. She was one of the first people that believed in me when God delivered me from drug addiction. I was blessed to have the opportunity to work alongside her at Gateway Rehabilitation Center. She marched alongside me when I founded Community Awareness Committee. Most importantly, she never gave up on me and many others like me. I've been clean now for over 31 years, and she was with me from the start. My love, respect and many, many memories of time shared with her will forever be etched in the innermost recesses of my spirit! I LOVE YOU PASTOR ELAINE SOLOMON... AND YOU KNOW IT, ALL THE WAY TO HEAVEN!!!

I met Pastor Solomon many years ago when she moved to Beaver Falls. I will never forget the long talks we had about The Lord. I know The Lord is saying “ Well done, my good and faithful servant.” We all know there are no sick people in Heaven, so we can rejoice in knowing that she is healed and resting in the arms of The Lord our Savior! RWG Pastor Solomon.

I was honored when asked to take Mrs. Solomon shopping at Walmart and the Beaver Valley Mall. She always had great conversation and could make me bust out laughing. I regret not visiting her and I hope she’ll forgive me.
To the Solomon Family thank you for sharing her with our community she has blessed and touched many people. Prayers sent to you all.
Sincerely, Chris Mason-Lindsey

Many of us came to know and love Mrs. Solomon or Nana through Keyva’s Facebook posts. Any time I get a DQ Blizzard, I will think of her.

May God’s love and peace comfort the family and all who knew and loved this remarkable woman. She will be missed and remembered by many.

With sincerest sympathy,
Laura Moran
