Elsie also leaves to mourn her loss, one brother, Fred (Eileen) Reso, of Red Deer, two sisters; Rose (Ron) Kramer, of Rimbey, and Dorothy (Bill) Hickman, of Red Deer, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Elsie is predeceased by her parents, one brother, and one sister at birth. A gathering of family and friends will take place at a later date.
