Elsie L. Chase

PLATTSBURGH — Elsie L. Chase, 92, of the Military Turnpike, Plattsburgh, died Monday, Jan. 13, 2014, at the Evergreen Valley Nursing Home in Plattsburgh.

She was born in Saranac Lake, June 3, 1921, the daughter of Arnold and Ettie (Sheldon) McKee.

Elsie graduated from Lake Placid High School. She was very fond of her childhood home in Wilmington, and its view of Whiteface Mountain. She enjoyed visiting there often. During World War II she worked in a parachute factory in Hartford, Conn. She later received training as a nurse at Champlain Valley Hospital, and went on to work at what is now the CVPH Medical Center.

Elsie loved working outdoors on her flowers, and in her garden. She would feed birds from her back porch, even feeding chickadees from her hand. Always the nurse, she would take in injured birds and care for them. She will be remembered most for her compassion, and dedication to her family.

Survivors include her sons, Lawrence Chase and Douglas Chase; daughter-in-law, Kathyrn Chase; grandson, Chad Chase; granddaughter, Nichole (Chase) Sanchez and her husband Gustavo Sanchez; great-granddaughter, Sofia Marcela Sanchez; and her nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her parents; husband, Freeman Chase; sisters, Lucy Richie, Bonnie Newell, Hazel Evans, Mary Newman, and Lillian Hall; and brother, William McKee.

Friends and relatives may call from 11 a.m. to Noon Saturday, Jan. 18, 2014 at the Hamilton Funeral Home, 294 Mannix Road, Peru. All are welcome to stay for a family service that will follow at Noon at the Hamilton Funeral Home Chapel. A reception will follow with details to be announced after the service.

Donations in her memory may be made to the Evergreen Valley Nursing Home Activities Fund.

Arrangements are in the care of the Hamilton Funeral Home, 294 Mannix Road, Peru.
