Elsie was born in Pueblo, Colo. on Dec. 12, 1920.
Elsie was raised in Pueblo and graduated from Central High School in 1938. She was a proud Wildcat and loved it when the bell rang blue. Elsie owned and operated Patti’s restaurant with her husband, Angelo. She was a member of Shrine of St. Therese.
She enjoyed baking cookies, decorating cakes and making the best homemade noodle soup (that has never been duplicated) for friends and family.
She loved to play canasta with her girlfriends and Uno with her grandkids. Elsie enjoyed traveling with Angelo on many trips through the Ports of Call organization. Elsie enjoyed playing her weekly lotto and cash five numbers and would rarely turn down a trip to Vegas.
Elsie was a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother and most of all grandmother. She was selfless with her time and would always help her family in any way she could. She will be dearly missed.
The family would like to thank the staff at the Life Care Center of Pueblo for their “tender, loving care” and attention given to Elsie.
