A salesmanager unlike any Ive ever come across. Simply the best. The ad community may never see another one like her again.
Elsie was a caring, creative, fun, loving, and wonderful woman. She affected my life in many ways and I am a better person, both professionally and personally, for having known her. She will be remembered fondly and loved by all who knew her. I’m thankful I was one of those lucky, lucky people!
Elsie was one of the sweetest people I’ve ever known. One of my fondest mememories was when Elsie took me on vacation to Disney World with Stephanie and Jimmy. What a great time we had! My deepest sympathy goes out to her family.
I was so sorry to hear that Elsie had passed away. I am sorry that I could not attend the memorial service, but was glad that Mom was there to share our sympathy with you. I love you.
I worked with Elsie decades ago when she worked in the advertising department of Wards/Circuit City in Richmond. So sorry to learn of her death. She was a smart and creative presence. Sympathy to her family, although much belated.
Worked with Elsie many many years ago at Wards TV (which became Circuit City) in the advertising department. Was looking for her contact information and discovered that she’d been gone for a long time. She was a capable, creative person with a great sense of humor. Sorry we did not reconnect in this lifetime, but wanted her family and friends to know she was still missed.
I still remember Elsie as a sharp copywriter at Wards in Richmond many years ago. Family may contact me if desired.
