Elsie Howell passed away at Canterbury Woods in Pacific Grove on January 20, 2006.

A long time resident of Monterey County, she was born in Dexter, New Mexico to her parents Clifton and Josephine Caffall. The family came to Monterey when Elsie was ten years old and she was married at the First Baptist Church in 1927.

Elsie was an active church member serving as a Sunday school teacher; church Treasurer and secretary; a member of the Board of Trustees and the choir.

She was particularly known for her work as a member of the church Missionary Society crafting quilts, bandages, and care packages to be donated to those in need. She was the longest living member of the First Baptist Church. Elsie was a beloved mother and grandmother.

She is survived by her two daughters Barbara Zabrowski and Constance Hunt of Monterey; her son Charles (Peggy) Howell of Monmouth, Oregon; eight grandchildren, 14 great grandchildren, and one great, great grandchild. Her husband Carleton Howell preceded her death in 1978.

Services will be held at 1pm on Jan 27 at the First Baptist Church of Monterey followed by a graveside service at El Carmelo Cemetery in Pacific Grove. Arrangements are being directed by The Paul Mortuary in Pacific Grove. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Elsie's name to the First Baptist Church of Monterey.
