The Simmons Family Reunion will be missing one of it's brightest star at this years reunion. Elsie was the one who started the ball rolling all those years ago and she and Merle have been the center of keeping things going. I really has been a source of many great memories for our family over many years. It was a time I spend the whole day visiting with my Dad, Grandma Rueger, my siblings, my many Aunts, Uncles, and cousins. Elsie was truly a blessing to our family and she will be missed. God's Blessings to Elsie's family and many friends, i

When I was a kid, my family went to all of the Crisp-Simmons family reunions. They were the highlight of the summer and Elsie was the organizer. I will never forget her long dark hair and her motorcycle from those early years. She was impressive. A few years ago I returned to the reunion and was able to talk with Elsie again! Still impressive and kind and so thoughtful. She will be missed.

The "old" neighborhood just won't be the same. Prayers of comfort for everyone....She helped Greg with some nice tips while going through his cancer. May all the memories you share, live on through the family. Her smiles were endless.
