Obituary of Elsie M. Delmas
Elsie Marie Davis Delmas (b. 13 August 1941) died peacefully on Saturday, 20 July 2019 after bravely battling a long illness. Daughter of Virgil Earl Davis (deceased) and Celia Davis (deceased), sister of Betty (deceased) and Shirley Joan (deceased). A 50+ year resident of Rockland County, Elise was most proud of her work at Rockland Learning Center, the former Montessori School in New City. She was an avid animal rights supporter and like a Disney character, loved feeding her menagerie of “pets”, which included deer, groundhogs, cardinals, blue jays, squirrels, various rodents, and other creatures, that roamed the property surrounding her house. Elise enjoyed painting, music, collecting Santa Clauses, and making everyone around her laugh.
Elsie is survived by Frank, her forever loved husband of 52 years, her children, Donna and Frank Jr., daughter-in-law Christine, beloved granddaughter Gia, sister Mary Cittadino, dozens of nieces, nephews, grand nieces and nephews, cousins, and her children’s friends that she took in as her own over the years.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to your local ASPCA.
