Rohrer, all of the Strasburg area; six grandchildren: Brandon, Lauren, Katrina, Adam, Olivia and Kate; her niece, Michele R. Buffington, wife of Jerry Buffington of West Lampeter; and great-niece, Alice Buffington. In addition to her husband, Robert Rohrer, Elsie was preceded in death by her sister, Becky (Shank) Becker.
