Aunt Elsie was one of my favorites since I was a young girl. She traveled frequently with us kids when my grandparents took us on road trips in their motor home. My fondest memory of her will always be when we crossed a state's border. She would gather all the kids and taught us to say "Goodbyyyyye Ohio, Helloooooo, Kentucky" and so forth. As kids this was something to really look forward to on long trips!

When we went to her house, she always had ginger-ale in her refrigerator that she would offer us to drink. I have never been very fond of ginger-ale but to this day when someone mentions ginger-ale I always think of Aunt Elsie! That and her dog Ginger that we also loved!

She was a wonderful woman and lived a long energetic life up till the end! In her early 90's she could run you under the table as active as she was. I miss her dearly already! So to Aunt Elsie I say "Goodbyyyye Earth, Hellooooooo Heaven!". I hope she's having a great time on the other side!

To a Great Mother & Mother-In-Law: Our hearts were broken when we lost you on January 9, 2016.  You were the most patient, loving, kind and caring person to everyone.  We will always remember our wonderful ethnic dishes of pierogi's, spaetzel's, cabbage & noodles, kapusta, kolachki's and your nut & poppyseed rolls! I will never forget the last 3 months that we spent together!  We were truly blessed to have you in our lives!  Our Dear Lord has a Wonderful "Little" Angel in Heaven with Him now and we pray you will always watch over us.  We will love & miss you forever!
Forever in Our Hearts,  Anita & Mike

So sorry to hear about cousin once removed Elsie Becker. We all lost touch after our own mother's passing..... Jane Hart Miner, my mother, was Arnold Becker's cousin. She was also Elsie Becker Hart's daughter; Elise Becker Hart (my grandmother) was Edward Becker's sister.  We had a few dinners and other celebrations in the Becker Parma home over the years as kids. My mother used to stop by and always kept in touch with Elsie. I remember Anita and Chip though I am sure we wouldn't know each other on the street now! I think the last time I saw Elsie was at my mother's passing 1999...or my brother Bob's in 2009. She did contact my sister Janice Toth occasionally. I hope to stop for the visitation Tuesday afternoon 2-4pm. Thoughts are with her family.
