We met Elfrieda and Annie on a cruise to Alaska in 1992. What a good time we had. Than a few years later Gerald and Alma and I and Gordon went to Florida and Elfrieda showed us around. I know we went to Universal Studios and In 1998 Elfrieda came to Nebraska to attend my son's wedding. I will never forget you Elfrieda. We have been friends through the years. Love you!! My deepest sympathy to the family of Elfrieda.

Love Maxine Jedlicka

I worked with Elfriede at Maas Brothers many years ago. I too had just moved to Florida and Maas Brothers restaurant was my first job upon arriving in Tampa; she worked as the hostess and the customers just loved her . Elfriede gave me many a ride to work in though days. She once invite me and my partner to dinner when she live in north Tampa. Many, many great memories of this wonderful lady.
