Elsye McGlaughlin Culver Bounds, 100, of Salisbury died Wednesday, Feb. 22, 2012, at Peninsula Regional Medical Center.

Born in Salisbury, she was a daughter of the late Harold Stanford Culver and Edna McGlaughlin Culver.

Mrs. Bounds graduated from Wicomico High School in 1930 and worked at Home Mutual Life Insurance until her retirement in 1990 after 35 years of service. She still worked part-time for them when it was later purchased by Baltimore Life Insurance Co. until Dec. 31, 2002, at the age of 91.

She was a member of Siloam Church until it closed and then transferred to Washington Methodist Church in Shad Point, which was named by her grandmother, Jenny Malone McGlaughlin, in February 1882. She was also a member of the Happy Timers and AARP.

She loved being with her family and friends and traveling before her health failed. She always visited the sick and took them cornbread, which was her specialty. In 2007, she moved to Atria Assisted Living. She had a quotation published in its yearly calendar in 2008 and in March 2009 and October 2011, was voted Resident of the Quarter for consistently helping new residents in their transition to Atria, and continued to help everyone on a daily basis.

She is survived by two daughters, Carolyn E. Parsons of Delmar and Elaine C. Pusey of Salisbury; granddaughters, Christine and Gerald Johnson of Tampa, Fla., and Karen and John Penuel of Hebron; great-grandchildren, Megan Conte, Jeremy and Caleb Johnson, and Johnny and Brian Penuel; nieces, Juanita Cathell, Anne Collins, Eleanor Forse and her husband, Jack, and Laura Culver; nephews, Sammy Bounds and his wife, Betty, and Bill Culver and his wife, Darlene; and several great-nieces and -nephews.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Henry W. Bounds, whom she married Feb. 26, 1935, and passed March 3, 1974; brothers, Ralph and Stanford Culver; sister, Irene Collins; son-in-law, Geo "Rudy" Parsons; and two nephews, Billy Bounds and Howard "Buster" Culver.

A funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. Monday at Bounds Funeral Home on East Main Street in Salisbury. The Rev. Jim Penuel will officiate. Interment will follow in Siloam Cemetery. Friends may call from 6-8 p.m. Sunday and one hour prior to the service Monday at the funeral home.
