Elsie Marloff Owen, a longtime resident of Lake Wildwood and a friend to many Wildwooders, passed away on the afternoon of the 4th of July, 2014. The cause of her death was attributed to a series of strokes.

Elsie was born in April 1926 in Brookline, a suburb of Pittsburgh, Pa. She was one of the seven children of John and Kathryne Marloff.

She was a flight attendant for Capitol Airlines before marrying David Owen in November of 1951. They had two daughters, Susan (Crescent City, Calif.) and Marla (Maui, HI). Elsie was a true helpmate, working at banks and real estate in Dover, Delaware and Davis, Calif., while David was earning his doctorate in nutrition.

She is survived by her husband, Dave, two daughters, four granddaughters and five great-granddaughters.

During her 26-plus years in Lake Wildwood, she made many friends through various activities, especially through playing bridge.

Elsie will be sorely missed.
