ELSIE M. GENSER Elsie Marie Channell was born on March 29, 1931 - In Atlantic City, New Jersey. At a very young age Elsie had to help her mother raise her siblings because they lost their father due to a freak accident. Elsie was a hard worker. She was very generous, creative and knew how to make money during hard times. She learned very quickly the value of a dollar. In 1953 Elsie and her two girlfriends traveled to Las Vegas for a vacation and never left. They loved it here. She landed a job as a cocktail waitress working the night shift at The Sands Hotel and Casino for 28 years. Elsie was one of the smartest women I knew. She worked and invested her money well. She had the best stories of her days working at The Sands. She kept me laughing for hours. She was a "real firecracker." She was a beautiful soul, always giving to help someone. After retiring she traveled the world. She lived her life to the fullest. We lost Elsie on November 9, 2017. She will be missed by those who knew and loved her. May she Rest in Peace. A Dear Friend.
