She grew up in North Jersey and graduated from Bloomfield High School in 1949. Elsie met her husband, Bert Dahlstrom, at Bloomfield High School and they became husband and wife on June 7, 1952.


Elsie and Bert lived in Bloomfield, NJ, where she worked for an ear, nose, and throat doctor. They then moved to Madison, Wisconsin while Bert completed his education. In 1960, they moved to Woodbury, NJ where they lived for 57 years while raising their three daughters, Karin, Bobbie, and Sandy.

Elsie and Bert enjoyed traveling to their different vacation Time Shares. They started a twenty year tradition of vacationing in Ocean City, NJ with their girls and their families.


In 2017, Elsie moved to Wellington Independent Living Community in West Chester, Pa., after her husband, Bert, passed. She enjoyed her time there meeting people and having fun with the activities she attended.
