Elsie Fidler

July 27, 1937 — November 15, 2015

Elsie Mae Fidler, 78, of Peoria, died on November 15, 2015 at United Hospital in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Elsie was born on July 27, 1937 in Parma, Missouri to Harry and Mae Baker. She married Harry D. Fidler of Peoria on May 24, 1959 in Trivoli, IL.
Elsie is survived by her daughter Shelly R. (Dave) Frazier of Chillicothe, two Granddaughters, Tracy R. (Robert) Collins of Prescott, Wisconsin, and Melissa L. (Blake) Gowans of Central Point, Oregon and two Great Grandchildren, Noah R. and Siara P. Collins, as well as many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, two sisters, one brother and her husband.
Elsie was a beautician for many years working out of her home while she raised her daughter. She was a loyal wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend. Elsie and her husband had a good life, in which they loved each other deeply. Her daughter Shelly was her pride and joy as she often talked about how beautiful she was when she danced as a young woman. She had the privilege to travel and have a long retirement with her husband. She was a loving grandmother and great grandmother. She showed her love and pride in her great grandchildren with countless photos displayed throughout their home.
Elsie was fortunate that after her husband died she spent her time with her Granddaughter and her family. She was able to continue to enjoy life and make lasting memories with her granddaughter, grandson in law and her great grandchildren. While life was not without obstacles she was given the chance to live, and she kept her sense of humor. In the end, that is all anyone can ask for.
