For children who grew up in Northbridge in 1980 – 2010, most would have known Elsie either through scripture classes or chess coaching at the primary school, or as the “Great Recycler” of Northbridge, whose front porch was rarely empty of toys, clothes, books, furniture and household goods. These items were cleaned, repaired and distributed to charities, half-way houses, refuges for victims of domestic violence, aboriginal communities and many other worthy groups.
The Christmas excursion by the local pre-schoolers to Elsie’s house – to view the repaired toys before they were sent to new homes – was a highlight for many young children of our suburb.

P.S. It would be nice if we, as a community, could organise the catering for the Wake on behalf of Elsie’s family. As we anticipate a significant number of people in attendance – we are seeking any assistance offered with the supply of Sandwiches and cakes. If you are able to assist – please give Anna a call on the above number.
