Elsie Virginia (Cash) Worrell Obituary
Elsie, the mother of Barbara Worrell Steiner, was born June 30, 1918, in Wythe County, VA, and finished high school there. That's where she met her husband, Harold Worrell, whom she married on January 22, 1939. After Harold joined the Navy, Elsie, following his ship, took their daughter to the West Coast, where they finally settled in La Jolla, CA. Elsie raised their daughter virtually alone until Harold retired from the Navy in 1958 after a 22 year career.
Elsie worked at Bower's Jewelry store and taught Sunday school at the La Jolla Presbyterian Church. She enjoyed growing cymbidium orchids and roses. Her grandchildren still remember her "white muffins" (buttermilk biscuits), strawberry pies and chocolate chip cookies. After her husband of 72 years passed away, Elsie went to visit her daughter's family in Colorado Springs, CO, and remained there the rest of her life. She loved that her family was able to visit her more frequently.
She is survived by her daughter, Barbara and son-in-law, Alan Steiner; her grandchildren, Chris Steiner, Allison and her husband, Dave Angulo, and Andrew Steiner and his wife, Hailey; and her great-grandchildren, Kylie, Grace and Audrey Angulo.
A memorial service will be held August 8, 2012, at 2:30 PM at La Jolla Presbyterian Church.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the church's Deacon Fund would be greatly appreciated.
