Elsie Pauline Fox (O'Connor)
Great Aunt Elsie, You were well spoken of and loved from afar in the sharing of warm childhood memories. Your pride of self, strong work ethics, love and service to God, Country and Family were not forgotten but shared with the next generation. Always a regret that in my travels we never got to meet. With love and prayers for immediate family and friends to be strong during this time of loss. Rest in peace.

So sorry to hear of Elsie's passing. She was an inspiration for all who knew her. Elsie drove to the Glenn Black Laboratory of Archaeology at Indiana University every day for many years as a Prehistory Research Associate. Her experience and background made her an important member of the laboratory where she cared for archaeological specimens, recorded important data, and was responsible for carrying out many critical curation tasks. Elsie spent many tedious hours measuring irreplaceable stone tool collections on loan from institutions spread all over the western United States. Her measurement data of projectile point specimens now complements several professional archaeological publications.
Elsie Fox had more wide-ranging field experience than many professional archaeologists. She participated in site research under strenuous field conditions working at remote archaeological sites scattered over the deserts of California, Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico and along the South Carolina coast. Elsie was truly a respected member of many academic field teams as well as the Glenn A.Black Laboratory of Archaeology.
Elsie will be sorely missed and happily remembered by archaeologists at institutions spread across the country. Noel D. Justice
Elsie was such a great friend to my mother, Velma Spain, of Greenfield, MO. They spent many hours together doing genealogy work and visiting cemeteries, etc. I often sat for hours just listening to her share her stories of her life experiences. She will be greatly missed.
