Elsa will be fondly remembered by her loving family including daughters Elfriede (Peter) Rohloff and Heide (Michael) Mayne; sons Gerhard (Alice) and Rudi (Barbara); five grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

Over the years, Elsa was a hardworking homemaker, worked at the packinghouse and on the farm.

She really enjoyed visiting her homeland of Bessarabia and Germany.

Elsa was an active member of Grace Lutheran Church. She sang in the church choir for many years, was part of the Lutheran ladies quilting circle which brought her a lot of pleasure and was  involved with the German Harmony Club Choir. Elsa was an avid gardener and she loved to cook and bake.

Donations are gratefully accepted for a charity of one’s choice.

The family would like to express a heartfelt thank you to the staff at Mariposa Gardens, Desert Sage 1 and Dr. Kane for all their care and compassion.
