She was employed as a factory worker at Carbon Engineering in Slinger for over six years, at Midas International in Hartford for 11 years, and then at MJ Stevens Pub and Grill for 17 years. Elsie will be missed by her friends she encountered through her memberships at St. Peterís Catholic Church in Slinger, St. Peterís Christian Mothers, and the Women of the Moose of West Bend Lodge #1398.
She will also be missed and forever loved by her cherished children, Deborah (David) Diener of Slinger, David (Lynne) Marcy of Fond du Lac, Jean Marcy (Chris Himes) of West Bend, and Sharon (Al) Grammel of Charlotte, North Carolina; her treasured grandchildren, Celena Marcy, Davey Wayne Marcy, Cassie Grammel, and Joshua and Whitney Marcy; her brother, Leo Duehning of Slinger; four sisters, Dolores Rudorf of West Bend, Marcella McCardle of Milwaukee, Anna Mergenthaler of Slinger, and Carol Saegert of Slinger; many nieces, nephews, other special relatives, and many dear friends. Elsie was greeted at the gates of Heaven by her parents, six brothers, two sisters, and her special friend, Clarence Schemeneauer.
Visitation was Friday, March 2, 2007 at St. Peterís Catholic Church. A Mass of Christian Burial in honor of Elsie was also on Friday at the church, with Father Richard J. Stoffel officiating. A luncheon for family and friends followed the Mass in the church hall.
