Elisabeth (Else) Torosian, of Fairfax, Virginia, passed away on November 16, 2017, at Greenfield Senior Living Center, Fredericksburg, Virginia. Else was born on April 30, 1925 in Cologne, Germany to Josef and Barbara Weiler. She married Leo Torosian on April 3, 1948 in Bad Nauheim, Germany, where they met after Lee returned to Europe following the war. Lee preceded Else in death in 1996.

Else was most happy when surrounded by family and friends. She only saw the good in others, and will be fondly remembered for her compassion, sense of humor and joy in sharing her German culture. She loved to cook, sing, dance, and play with her grandkids. Else had a smile that would light up a room.

Else lives on through her three children and their spouses, Michael and Helen Torosian, Barbara and William Heffron, and Mark and Suzanne Torosian; her five grandchildren, Reid (Pamela), Christine (Todd), Meghan (Matthew), Jaden and McKenna; and her three great grandchildren, Zachary, Owen and Tyler.

A memorial service will be held on November 20th at Greenfield Senior Living, 2001 Northside Drive, Fredericksburg, at 2:30PM. A private graveside service will be held for immediate family at Fairfax Memorial Park.
