Elsie Marie Baehr was born July 20, 1928 in Elgin, the only child of Anna L. and Alfred Moritz and departed this life on August 16 2019 at AMITA Health Saint Joseph Hospital. Since the fall of 2015 she has made her home at Oak Crest in Elgin. Burial will be in Lakewood Memorial Park, Elgin. Il.

Elsie graduated in 1946 from Elgin High school and was employed by the Elgin Watch Company. When they closed, she continued her career with Seigle Lumber Company as the company buyer. She was noted for her great memory and no one needed to look up anything in the catalogues; it was “just ask Elsie, she will know”. She retired from Seigle’s in 1988 to care for her mother until her death in 2000.

Elsie had many loves in her life, from traveling worldwide, ice skating, needlework and animals. She traveled extensively throughout the world. As she stated, she went everywhere with the exception of Japan and Russia. She loved to ice skate and always carried her ice skates in her car, so that they were with her if she found a place to skate. She skated up through the 2013 season. Her needlework included many knitted items, and many cross stitched pictures of cats and dogs displayed throughout her home. On her many walks in the neighborhood, she never missed stopping to visit with a dog first and then his owner.

Elsie leaves to mourn many friends and traveling buddies.
Burial will be private.
