She was raised on the family farm in Fenwood, Sask. and completed high school at Sacred Heart in Yorkton. Elsie spent 37 years working for the Sask Government. Most of her career was spent in the Personnel Dept. at Valley View Centre. Elsie also spent 35 healthy, active and independent years in retirement. During her last trip to Vegas with Brian in October, 2019 Elsie averaged over 10k steps a day! Elsie enjoyed being with her family and many good friends. She was unconditionally supportive of others and a real connector of people. Elsie was a devout Catholic and attended mass whenever possible. For many of her nieces and nephews, Elsie was a like a second mother. She is the last Auntie for nieces and nephews on the Misko side of the family. She will be missed by her special friend, Shirley, and so many dear dear friends at Victoria Towers. The evening dice game just won't be the same.
