Those who knew Elsie describe her as a quiet person, enjoyable to be around, always with a ready smile and a twinkle in her eye. She was very affectionate and loving - especially to her family. Her family always came first. To her children she gave the gift of unconditional love, always letting them know they were loved and cherished. As a "Mom" she was always there. Sweetheart/Mom/Granna: YOU are our Sunshine - our only Sunshine. YOU will always and forever have a special place in our hearts.
The family would like to send a very special thanks to the many Angels at Hospice of North Idaho, The Bridge Assisted Living and Life Care Center of Post Falls for your love, compassion and care during the past several months.
