    Dear Marvin & Family
    Our sincere sympathy in your loss!
    Pleasant memories come to mind of the times we enjoyed fellowship together while visiting LeRoy Sager & when you ventured to S.D. to visit Edna or to be at Convention.
    The loss is surely felt but knowing she finished her journey here faithfully brings a "peace" that comes only from God!
    With our love & care
    Arlene & Ron

    it was with sadness and with joy that I heard Elsie has gone home to be with her Heavenly Father.
    From the time I first met Elsie at Iron Bridge convention in 1973 and through the years my heart knew only admiration for a remarkable woman.
    I am sorry for the family’s great loss but believe the wonderful memories of her will offer you all much comfort.
    My condolence to all the family..
