Elsie E. Cyr

January 12, 1928-May 23, 2017

Highland Falls, NY

 

Elsie Cyr, beloved wife and mother, joined her husband of 63 years in eternal peace Tuesday. She was 89 years old. Elsie was born at the West Point Hospital, the daughter of an Army Sergeant.

 

She was a working woman for most of her life, starting as a telephone operator in Florida and New York, and finishing with a 20-year career as a police dispatcher for Highland Falls.

 

She helped found the Sacred Heart Church Thrift Shop, and at a time when many women did not drive, was a willing chauffeur for her many friends.

 

She is survived by her son, Joe.

 

There will be no service. Donations can be made in her name to Town Of Highlands Volunteer Ambulance Corps., PO Box 35, Highland Falls, NY 10928.
