Wendell and Janice Christopher
"Mom Elsie" was the name given to this loving lady who provided childcare for our children during their preschool years. Both Heidi and Kip remember "Mom Elsie" as their surrogate grandmother in Martinsburg since they had no biological grandparents in the area. They were blessed to have her consistent love, patience, structure, and guidance during these important formative years. We now live in Morgantown but visited with Elsie last July and were so happy we had another opportunity at that time to let her know we will forever be grateful for her care of our children and for her never-ending interest in them. And, oh, how could we possibly forget those scrumptious sugar cookies!!
As Elsie's wonderful family celebrates her life and grieves her loss, we want them to know that the Christopher family's journey was richer because of Elsie and Bill Wilburn's presence in our lives. Thanks for sharing them with us.
Our sympathy and love to all.
