children. She lived her entire life in the St. Louis area where she attended Mark Twain Elementary School and
Beaumont High School. She met her future husband, Edward Elstermeyer on a church hay ride in 1941 and he
introduced her to Ebenezer Lutheran Church. Ebenezer then became an important part of her life. She was confirmed
there on March 31, 1944 and would remain a lifelong member. She married Edward there on April 27, 1946 after he
returned from World War II and they enjoyed 61 years together until he passed away in March 2008. She faithfully
served Ebenezer for over 30 years as a school cook. She also was a school cook for Our Lady of Loretto and St. Jacobi
schools. She finally retired in 2003 at the age of 78. She had been a member of Ebenezer’s Evening Guild and was on
the Altar Servers until August 2016 when her health issues forced her to step down.
