Elsie Marie Gravener-Snyder was born in Hoxie, Kansas September 10, 1930 to Charles Francis Gravener and Zoe Elsie Gravener. Elsie Marie passed after a long illness on March 10, 2019. Elsie Marie worked as a waitress and supported her husband through medical school. She was in the Denver Poetry Society and did poetry readings and dramatic readings throughout Colorado. Elsie Marie also sang at numerous supper clubs, as she had a love for music. It wasn’t unusual to come into her home and see her playing the piano by herself, as though she was playing for a crowded coliseum. In her later years, Elsie Marie loved watching the Laramie and catching the latest episode of Family Feud with her daughter. Elsie Marie was preceded in death by her parents and four brothers and three sisters. She is survived by her daughters, Teresa and Marsha, son Kevin, seven grandchildren and seventeen great grandchildren. Services will be held on Saturday, March 16, 2019 at 11:00 AM at Olinger Crown Hill Mortuary & Cemetery, 7777 W. 29th Ave., Wheat Ridge, CO 80033 in the Pavilion. Viewing will be held between 10:00 AM and 11:00 AM prior to the service. Placement within the crypt immediately following.
