Elsie Forcier

February 4, 1928 — June 4, 2022

Elsie Norma Forcier, age 94, passed away on June 4th, 2022, after a bout with Pneumonia.  She passed away peacefully at Suite Living Senior Care in Little Canada, MN.

Elsie was born in Woden, IA and lived with her family in Meservy, IA.  At age of 16 she moved to Minnesota to take care of her grandmother. She worked various jobs in which she was able to use her sewing and knitting skills.  Elsie met and married Francis Forcier in 1946.  They had 4 children, Diana, Norma, Paul and Gerald.  She became a nursing assistant at Bethesda Hospital for 26 years until her retirement. After retirement Elsie returned to Meservy IA to take care of her mother, Ruth.  They had many travels including winters in Texas.  After Ruth died, she moved into Washington Square Apartments in White Bear Lake MN.  An unfortunate fall, that broke her shoulder, forced her to move into assisted living.  Elsie was an avid Twins fan, loved knitting, sewing, crocheting, and a good game of cribbage.

Elsie is preceded in death by her mother and father Ruth (Dilts) & Horace Jolly; her brothers Cecil, Merle, Donald, LeRoy, Harold, Kenneth; sisters Violet and Edith; and her grandson Jonathan. She is survived by her brother Richard; her children Diana, Norma (Bruce), Paul, and Gerald; grandchildren Mike, Tim, Molly (Jeremy), Ryan (Kara), and Katie; great great children Ben, Brianna, Brayden, Max, Mia, Zachary, Madilyn, and Mikala.
