Elsie Stone, 101, passed away January 16, 2024 at her Crayne, Kentucky home of almost 52 years. She would have been 102 on March 24th of this year.
Elsie was a member of Frances Community Church. When she was 21 years old, Elsie served her country as a Rosie the Riveter while her then husband was serving in the military during WWII. She riveted on airplane wings in the war effort at the Briggs plant in Evansville, Indiana. She also worked at Potter and Brumfield in Marion, Kentucky for a short time and then worked at Arvin Industries in Princeton, Kentucky for several years. She left Arvin Industries in 1979 to babysit her second grandchild while her daughter taught school. Elsie’s favorite place to be was outside. She loved pushmowing her yard, planting and tending to her vegetable garden, planting and tending to her flower gardens, planting trees and shrubs, and she even loved pulling weeds. If Heaven ever needs to hire a gardener, Elsie will be first in line with her application. She was also an avid reader with westerns being her favorite genre. In her earlier years, she enjoyed doing pencil drawings and oil painting on canvas. Her daughter’s elementary teachers at Mattoon Elementary School loved it when she would come to school to paint holiday scenes on their large bulletin boards while their students watched in amazement at her talent.
