Mom was very crafty. She has left us with many items that we will cherish for many years. Quilts, doilies, afghans, hand painted wood crafts. She also loved her beautiful gardens. One of Elsie’s accomplishments was to acquire her cooks’ papers in her fifties. She was a cook at the Seaforth Hospital until her retirement in 1998. Mom was a great cook and baker; she was known for her scones, butter tarts, pies, and shortbread cookies.
Keeping with Elsie’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a private family graveside service will be held at Egmondville Cemetery.
Donations to the Seaforth Community Hospital Foundation or a charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.
