Her oldest son, Hilary, was very ill as a child and died at the age of 10. Her husband Peter became ill in 1976 and they had to sell the family farm and move to Ethelbert. While living in Ethelbert, Elsie worked for homecare as well as looked after her ailing husband. Peter passed away in 1986. She always managed to plant a huge garden, which was the envy of many neighbors. She loved to share the produce with her family and friends. She was a terrific cook. Her cabbage rolls and perogies were always in demand and she was always baking for some function at the church or hall. Elsie was very involved with the Church.

Peter & Paul Ukrainian Catholic Church in Ethelbert as well as being a member of the Ukrainian Catholic Women’s League in Ethelbert.

They became great friends and have a lot of great stories to tell about their Baba and the things they did together.In September 2009, Elsie fell in her garden and broke her hip. As a result, she was never able to return to her house and garden again. After a long recovery in the Dauphin Hospital she moved into Sunnyside Lodge in Ethelbert. She lived there until 2011 when she moved to the Rideau Park Personal Care Home in Brandon, to be closer to her family. Elsie was happy at Rideau Park and the staff enjoyed her quick wit and humor.
