I used to be very good friends with Elsie when she was married to Eddie Holbert because I was friends with Eddies Mom Florence many years ago..Elsie was so very slow talking very nice to me. I visited one time later on in years and she never changed. God Bless You Elsie always so polite and nice. I am sorry I never got to see you later on in years. But I am so glad I got to know you MANY years ago RIP my old friend.

I loved Elsie and have wonderful memories, she always was happy she had a beautiful smile and was good to everyone. She will be greatly missed by all of the family . Rest in the arms of your Heavenly Father. Gloria. To my sister Elsie , I remember when Dad bought us boxing gloves, and we would box each other. And of course she beat me up every time. And Dad would laugh at us. She was a great sister and I loved her and going to miss her. So sorry I am not able to be with everyone. Love you all and God Bless you. Your brother Donnie.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Aunt Elsie, you were such a great part of my life when I was growing up. I always called you Doo Doo. I don't know why but you didn't care what I called you. I will always remember the great times having yard sales at my mother's house and when we went to my mother in law's house to ransack and gather things to put in one of our sales. Your loving smile and happiness will remain with me for the rest of my life. You will be missed but I know you are with your sisters who have gone before you. Celebrate!! I love you

Aunt Elsie...Gosh where to begin. You were such an avid part of my childhood. From coming down fire the yard sales to always losing your teeth. You made childhood and growing up fun. I'm honored to call you my aunt. Love you.
