Elsie was born in Ignace, Ontario in 1925, but moved to Arona, Italy as a child where she grew up. She returned to Canada in 1947 where she met Egidio and married in 1949.

Elsie was a beautiful lady, who exuded class in everything she did, but without question her claim to family fame was her fabulous Italian cooking. She took great pride in perfecting and sharing it with all who passed through her cucina. It will be remembered as such a part of who she was.
