    To the family & friend of Mrs. Elsie Justus:

    I offer many ((((HUGS)))), blessings and my deepest sympathy of the sudden loss of Mrs. Elsie Justus.
    She was a loving Child, Sister, Cousin, Wife, Aunt, Mother, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother as well as a special friend and neighbor to many.
    I first met the Justus family 45 years ago in Chicago, Illinois as a Kindergartener and classmate all the way through 8th grade graduation of her daughter, Carol Justus. I remember her Elsie pushing Carl, Jr. in a stroller while taking her daughter to school. Time went on Carol & I went to different high schools, lived our lives BUT remained friends from a distance and in our hearts. Carol became a Mother then “Facebook” became the newest Social Media site where people could find their friends from days long gone. Carol and I re-connected. Soon after her Mother and I re-connected and i was awestruck because her Mother never changed. Although the distance of time went on, it felt as if we never were apart. Little did I know that moving from Chicago, IL Cook County North to Lake County that we are all once again closer. From a shorter distance I watched as Carol’s family grew and she became a first time Grandmother to Saydee Rose, what a beautiful perfect baby and of course time moved on and her other daughters became Mothers to more Grandchildren.
    With Many Blessings, Hugs and Love,
    Your friend – Kathy Strangaritch
