Elsie’s parents were the late Emil and Amalia (Steeke) Matz. She was baptized and confirmed at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Corliss Township, rural Perham. On June 22, 1943, Elsie was united in marriage to Roy Martin. Their marriage was blessed with four daughters. Roy and Elsie lived on the farm until retiring in 1981. Together they enjoyed many years of baseball, bowling, golfing and horseshoes. They also enjoyed traveling. Elsie will be remembered as an amazing seamstress who kept her daughters fashion-forward. She also enjoyed baking and flower gardening.
