Elsie had a full life and enjoyed time with her beloved family. Her daughter who she referred to as “her Dolly” Charlotte was always running her to every family event they could possibly attend. Charlotte was her personal angel and made her life as comfortable and fulfilling as she could.

Elsie would always welcome anyone she met and would make them part of her family. She would ask anyone to just call her Grandma. She will always have a special place in everyone’s hearts.
