Elsie Jean Lytle, 92 of Coldwater passed away Monday, March 16, 2020 at Maple Lawn Medical Care Facility.

In following her wishes, cremation has taken place and no formal services are planned. The family was cared for by Dutcher Funeral Home.

Elsie was born January 28, 1928 to Fred and Muriel (Quimby) Sellers in Michigan Center. She worked with her husband at W.E. Lytle & Sons, but mainly was a homemaker raising her family.

Elsie was well known for her quilting skills and also taught lessons in quilting while at Maple Lawn. She enjoyed the outdoors, especially going boating and fishing. Elsie was a good cook and liked preparing meals for her family. She was an avid card and euchre player who wanted to win at all costs, including cheating if necessary. She will be remembered for her outgoing and funny personality. Elsie always put the needs of her family first, being very loyal to her children and grandchildren.

Elsie was a very kind lady. I remember when she worked at a restaurant (now the Wings place right off I69) My first prime rib dinner (never in my life saw such rare steak) but it was great. She and Jim also accompanied us on our first official date at the Capri drive inn. She was a great cook and shared a tip on how to make great Cole slaw. My heart goes out to her family (Randy). Thinking of all of you at this difficult time. Jennifer
