Elsie was so loving and caring. She and Charlie made me feel so comfortable, when I first met them. Richard and I had a special place in our hearts for them. I will never forget what Elsie and Charlie did for Richard during his life. He spoke of his family with very warm and loving memories. Elsie will always be remembered for her warmth, love and her love of life. Elsie, you will be missed. Juanita Menghi (Kansas City, MO)

I will always remember Aunt Elsie's smiling eyes and cute grin. Goo Goo Pies, Chai tea, and our trip to Cypress Gardens and Key West. So many fond and funny memories of dear Aunt Elsie. My thoughts and prayers are with Uncle Charlie and the entire family. She was unique and wonderful! May she rest in peace.

Dear Charlie & Family,

We were saddened to learn of Elsie's passing. We will always have fond memories of her great sense of humor and cheerfulness.
The pleasure of knowing her has been all ours. All of you are in our prayers.

I remeber Elsie mostly for her beautiful smile and her generosity. She was always so kind to everyone. I'm sure she is certainly with HIM in heaven now.

Elsie was very generous. When she married my cousin Charlie, she gave me the honor of being one of her bridesmaids. I was thrilled. Pat Heitzman

Elise was a wonderful sister & very intelligent & lots of fun. I was 5 then Charlie entered her life & only remember them together. They took Janice & I to many places & helped me trough my teen years too. I remember when Elsie was crying her heart out &
when Charlie went to Korea & Papa tried to feed her an orange so she would eat something. I also rememjber in my childhood that I never spelled her name right (spelled it "Elise.").
