This year they would have celebrated their 70th Wedding Anniversary. Elsie Hoover lived her entire life on a farm. From milking diary cows with her sister and father east of Manitou to raising children west of Manitou; there wasn't any thing Elsie hadn't seen around the farm. She instilled a great love for the serenity of the farm in her children and grandchildren. In her spare time, she enjoyed selling Avon beauty products to the women in the community for over 40 years. She was an excellent cook and was well known for her homemade bread. At 12:30 every day, she had a full-course meal ready for her family and whomever else may have been present. She had a tradition of teaching each of her grandchildren how to decorate cakes and loved decorating Easter eggs with the kids. She was an excellent hand quilter.
