SHELBURNE FALLS - Else (Pusinaw) Miner, 91, passed away Thursday, February 13, 2014 at Charlene Manor Extended Care Facility in Greenfield.
Else was born in Fulda, Germany on June 1, 1922.
She met her future husband Robert Miner, while he was deployed with the US Army serving in Germany during WWII. They settled in Buckland after the war.
After her children had grown, Else was employed by the former Kendall Mills in Colrain.  Else enjoyed reading, working in her gardens, sitting on her porch, and most of all, she enjoyed spending time with her family.
Survivors include her son Richard "Rick" Miner and his wife Lori of Buckland, grandchildren Kirstin and Christopher Miner, a daughter-in-law Cindy Miner, a step-granddaughter Jennifer Brzezinski, and a son-in-law Stephen Simon.

A private graveside service will take place in the spring.
