Elsie was a singing performer and modeled hats, gloves and jewelry for a local department store. So her unit got together and celebrated her life along with thirty family members, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren as well as staff and residents. Even Frank Sinatra stopped by and sung to Elsie. Her daughter and granddaughter showed a slide show of Elsie's performing career and read her a poem on what a positive influence she was to the family. Elsie sang her signature song :"Goodie Goodie" to the cheering crowd of admirers. Then, everyone enjoyed a piece of chocolate cake.
