Elva was an avid reader of historical literature, novels written by Lucy M Montgomery, doing wordsearch and always hitting the "word target" , playing 45s at home and collecting donkey ornaments. She enjoyed reliving the humor from days gone by and adding her quick, humorous wit to many occasion. She loved walking in the woods with dad and later with her children. Her love for animals was evident when many stray or injured animals were brought home to be nurtured back to health. She leaves behind her treasured cat "Miss Kitty" . Moms message to her few true friends was that she was glad to have met and gotten to know each of you. The family will receive visitors 4-7 pm Monday, April 15th in the Ronald A.
