Elsie went back to work in 1962 for a short time at Nepitt’s Grocery Store and for two years at Mazzuca’s IDA. Then 20 years for Portlance Lumber. She loved to bake, cook and entertain. She loved to dance and never missed a dance or wedding. She baked and iced wedding cakes for many years. She crocheted, knit, did ceramics and painted. She made Ukrainian easter eggs for pastime. She loved to play cards, bingo and the slots. She loved and was devoted to her family and friends. She was devoted to her church- St. Albans was her second home from the time she moved to Capreol. The family would like to thank ST. Joseph’s Villa for all their care and compassion during Elsie’s stay there.
Due to Covid-19 A Memorial Service will be held at a later date.
Donations to St. Alban the Martyrs Church in her memory would be greatly appreciated.
