    Elsie was my Mom’s Aunt (Dorothy Glunz).
    My Mom loved her and thought the world of her. She always told me stories of how her and your Dad, Johnny, always helped her. I just remember her as a little spitfire.

  3. Nancy Henson Schroeder

    An amazing woman of both strength and faith. I still remember watching her as a little girl looking up parts for Johnny at the store. It seemed like there wasn’t anything she could handle. My thoughts and prayers to you all. She truly was a one of a kind.

    May the Poirier family find comfort in knowing that God is “near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.” (Psalm 34;18) He has promised to soon “swallow up death forever…and wipe the tears from all faces.” (Isaiah 25;8) Take care,
