Elsie was preceded in death by two loving husbands, Dean Bennett and Donald Wise formerly of Kent and Seattle respectively, and her son Steve Bennett of Renton.Elsie was loved for her vibrant nature and lust for life. She was born into one of Kents’ original pioneer families and tells stories of her mother shooting bear! She received 9 athletic letters from her high school and went on to be-come matriarch to a loving family and to devote her life to service and volunteer work. Elsie unselfishly cared for all those around her, including numerous great-grandchildren, well into her later years. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her!The service will be held at the Greenwood Memorial Park in Renton, (www.greenwoodmempark.com) Monday, July 21, 2008.
