She was born in South Carolina on April 19, 1919, to Louis Tucker and Maude Weathersbea Hitt. Elise loved to work in her garden, cook, sew and do anything that was crafty. She was known for her love of taking care of others. Elise loved God and was a faithful servant. She read her Bible and the Lord's Prayer daily until her vision and health declined.
