Dear Ken and family,
Elsie was such a wonderful woman and I feel blessed to have known her since I began to work at Fuller House. She was a classic, strong willed, smart and so talented. Her needlepoint was exquisite. Take comfort knowing she will always be with you and guiding you from Heaven.

Our deepest condolences. We will miss Grammy. I will always have wonderful memories of her. Throughout the years I always looked forward to thanksgiving. I was her biggest fan of her "dolly bars". They will always be my favorite dessert. Love, Audrey, Shaun and Paul Conley

To Ken and Agnes, Sandra, and extended families'
On this day of sadness, on learning of the passing of "Aunt Elsie", I fondly remember the good times spent with her and "Uncle Rolly". From the early days as our downstairs neighbor in Montreal, to my youth when visiting Malden, Melrose, she always welcomed me, with love, and good times. Those days I will cherish forever. To those she leaves behind I offer my deepest sympathy, on the loss of a wonderful lady. May God bless my favourite "Aunt"
