Elsie had many great friends and some of the most wonderful neighbors in the world. She was a good person, well liked, and loved by all, as she always had an upbeat and positive personality, grateful heart, while being self-reliant and a burden to no one.

Elsie’s wishes are to have no funeral service and have members of her family spread her and Herbert’s ashes on Hart Mountain in Southeastern Oregon, where they spent some of the best times of their lives together.
