Elsie was a honor graduate of Hannibal High School and went on to become a farm wife, mother and homemaker. She stayed very active at home and involved in numerous activities within the church.  She was a member of the Ladies Aid at St. John's Lutheran Church while a member there and she was the PTA President at her children's school.  Elsie also volunteered for the Cancer Society.  Elsie took pleasure in gardening, reading, and baking.  She and Ray enjoyed time spent together fishing.  Being on the family farm was a happy place not just for Ray and Elsie, but for all the family to gather for meals and to just be together as a family.  Elsie loved her family and she will be missed by all who knew her.

Elsie was a member of the First Baptist Church of New London.
