What a lady! Feisty and spirited. She actually scared me at times and could put a loud mouth like me into silence with a head shake. She’s a role model for others on living life like she wanted and being a strong but caring person. Her dedication as a mom is exemplified in the lovely ladies she raised. Rip Elsie!
