I remember the Elva from my days working at a local bank. She was always such a pleasure. She would put a smile on my face each time I had the pleasure of having her at my teller window. She was a special lady and now she is smiling in heaven!!! May your memories bring you joy. Sincerely, Vicki Anthony
I worked with Elva and Carl in that little basement pharmacy at Colonial Manor for a few years... never have I been around a more gentle, loving, classy couple in my life! I remember most the way she would caress your face to show her love... especially when I took over the computer! My baby sister Jody took over my job when I left. My brother Mike work as a nurse there also. Our family... and anybody who met this woman fell madly in love...!!!
To those that had the pleasure to be in her life recently... and for always... my heart breaks for you!!
My brother, Mike Landin, said Bobby Sager, our cousin, just called him to say that Elva had died.
My deepest sympathy to all the family. Elva closes a chapter in the history of John and Anna Landin, early settlers in Swedetown, and new to this country.
I remember Elva, when I was a child, putting nail polish on her long nails, always on a diet, and Grandma Landin hurrying to finish a dress for Elva's "hot" date (Carl). At the Sunday gatherings of the Swedes, Elva loved to bang away at the piano, and sing as others gathered around her and joined in the fun. Elva worked for the WPA with my Aunt Jan (Wayne Hammond)Foley-Hammond from Oconto. Carl was devoted to Elva, and was a grand guy.
I am sure your memories are endless, but I thought I'd share just a few from my childhood. Elva attended my mother's memorial, and Arvid's, of course, so I was able to see her one last time with Ruth and Arlene.
My best to you all. It is hard to lose one's parents.
