Elsie Susan Egli Litwiller was born in Manson, IA, the daughter of C. B. and Emma Grimm Egli. She attended rural school in Manson.

Elsie and Chancy Litwiller were united in marriage on August 11, 1937, in Manson.

The couple moved to the Kalona area so their children would have the opportunity to attend Iowa Mennonite School. They remained strong supporters of the school all their lives.
Elsie was a homemaker and a farm wife who was devoted to her family, especially the grandchildren. She was a member of East Union church and participated in the sewing circle. She was a member of a booster group when they lived near Washington. She was an avid reader and a wonderful cook. Elsie took pride in staying in touch with her nieces and nephews by writing to them.

Elsie is survived by two sons; Francis and wife Phyllis of Kalona and Keith of Washington. Also surviving are six grandchildren; Jon and Becky Litwiller, Tim and Denise Litwiller, Matt and Heather Litwiller, Andrea and Mike Leyden, Amy and Brian Miller, and Chad Litwiller; eleven great grandchildren; Jason, Jacayla, Justin Litwiller, Tanner, Trever and Travis Leyden, Victoria and Joey, Max, Henry and Anna Litwiller. One sister Ida Egli of Kalona survives.

Elsie was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Chancy (3/28/2003), a son Cecil, a daughter-in-law, Barbara Litwiller and eleven siblings; Amon, Joe, Lewis, Emery Egli, Maude Swartzendruber, John, Sam, Lawrence, Jess, Rosette, and Stan Egli.
