Our deepest sympathies to The Hanula family! We have known Ms. Elsie for 7 years as her neighbor, she welcomed us with open arms, a friendly smile and a rundown of the neighborhood! She became a grandma like figure for us and our kids always looking out for us whether it be we forgot to turn off the lights, or strange activity or concern if we were ok because we didn’t see her in a couple of days. We introduced all of our family to her, our Moms especially took a liking to her and enjoyed her company when they were hanging out outside. Ms.Elsie loved her garden, she would show my kids what new plant she was growing for her grandkids to see (potatoes, carrots, etc).. and she always thought of our kids during the holidays, going out of her way to make sure they had healthy treat bags for Halloween or Easter treats...
Ms. Elsie is an inspiration for our family, strong, determined woman... walked 5 miles everyday no matter what the weather (unless it was too cold)..always checking on her friends and collecting golf balls. She never wanted help shoveling snow, we would have to sneak and clean her snow before she got out or else you wouldn’t have a chance.... oh and she loved RED.. if she wasn’t worried about my husband’s driving she would have jumped into his red GTO that she loved checking out in the summer! The garden bunnies and us will really miss her, but her memory as a great neighbor and friend will live on, we can only hope that our new neighbors are half the neighbor you have been! RIP Ms. Elsie!
