May 9, 1923 — December 8, 2016

Elsie Mae Falk (nee Keith) went to her eternal glory on Thursday morning, December 8, 2016 after a long struggle with congestive heart failure.

Elsie was born May 9, 1923 in Roaring Spring, Pennsylvania and was baptized on January 22, 1939 at the First Church of the Brethren in Roaring Spring. She graduated from Roaring Spring High School, then worked in the Sylvania plant in Altoona during World War II.

She met Lloyd Falk from Appleton, Wisconsin, in Roaring Spring and the couple married July 9, 1960 at the First Church of the Brethren in Roaring Spring. Elsie moved to Appleton after they were married and joined St. Paul Lutheran Church. Elsie was a member of the St. Paul Ladies Aid and the Appleton Memorial Hospital Pink Ladies for many years. She enjoyed golf, bowling, and card playing in her younger years, and Dominos, Yahtzee, and cards later in life. She took great pride in her four grandchildren.

Elsie has three sisters: Elizabeth Brumbaugh, Ethel Burket, and Betty Fisher; a brother: Harry (Kathy) Keith, all living in the Roaring Spring area; and a sister-in-law: Doris Falk of Appleton.
