Kriste J. (Dilks) Elgart, 65, of Bear, Delaware passed away peacefully at her home on July 18, 2021, surrounded by her family. She was a wonderful mother, mom-mom, sister, aunt and friend and will be dearly missed by all.
Kriste was a 1974 graduate of Pennsville Memorial High School, Pennsville, NJ. She moved to Delaware and started a working career, first at ALICO and then JP Morgan Chase, where she recently celebrated 34 years of working. She enjoyed the Jersey Shore, going to wineries, shopping, and spending time with family. She especially enjoyed going to her daughter’s basketball games and tournaments. Wherever Jordan’s teams had a game, Kriste could be found in the stands cheering them on...honorary team mom to all.
Kriste is survived by her sons, Jason and Thomas Elgart both of New Castle, DE; her daughter Jordan Elgart with whom she lived; her grandchildren Noah and Emma Elgart of Vancouver, Washington; her brother Ronnie (Toni) Mungioli of Salem, NJ, her sister Marla DiSalvo of Wilmington, DE, the father of her children, Tommy Elgart, her daughter-in-law Brittany Elgart, as well as many loving nephews, nieces, great-nephews and great-nieces.
