Elsie May Heisler DePrisco was the beloved daughter of John and Mary Jane (Peterson) Heisler. Her grandparents were all immigrants. The two Heisler grandparents came to the United States from Germany before 1863. On her mother's side, her grandfather, Christian Peterson, came from Denmark, and her grandmother, Elizabeth (Deacon) Peterson, came from Ireland.

Elsie May was the sister of Elizabeth, Catherine, and John Lambert Heisler. Wife of Frank M. De Prisco. Beloved mother of Charles N. De Prisco, Alfred Deacon De Prisco, Margaret, Frank M. De Prisco, Catherine, John C DePrisco, and Leonard P. De Prisco.

She had been sick, but her death was not expected. She died, in Wilmington, from diabetes-related complications. She left behind many that cared for her: Seven children, and eventually 36 grandchildren (many of whom she didn't live long enough to meet), and too many great-grandchildren to count!
