Elsie was a longtime member of The Northview Tabernacle Baptist Church and led the singing for almost 50 years. She also was a member of the Marshfield Garden Club, Red Hat Club, the Bookwriting Club, The Jewells, and The Cherry Blossom Festival.
Elsie enjoyed spending time with her family and cooking dinner for them every Sunday after church. Everyone loved her homemade biscuits and gravy. She loved all her grandkids and getting them together and telling them ghost stories like “Little Orphan Annie” and singing songs like “The Old Gray Mule.” And if there was ever a squabble she would make them hug, kiss and make up. She loved telling them about Jesus and his love for us. She could be found every morning at the kitchen table reading her Bible and praying.
She will be deeply missed by all who were touched by her loving spirit and kindness.
Funeral services will be held at 1:00 p.m. Thursday, January 31, 2019 in the Fraker Funeral Home, Inc., with interment following in Marshfield Cemetery. Visitation will be from 6-7 p.m. Wednesday, January 30, in the funeral home.
