Elsie H. Peters, 82, of Taneytown, MD, died peacefully on Thursday, August 31, 2017 at her home, surrounded by her loving family.  Born August 28, 1935, in Baltimore, she was the daughter of the late Adolph and Anna Althea (Beck) Rickour.  She was the beloved wife of the late Fred Walter Peters, to whom she was married for 43 years.  He passed away October 7, 2012.

Elsie was a switchboard operator at Cambridge Rubber Company in Taneytown for many years.  She enjoyed flower gardening, meeting with her friends in the Lord’s Lunch Bunch, and attending church services and activities at Keysville Evangelical Lutheran Church, Trinity United Methodist Church in Emmitsburg, and Tom’s Creek United Methodist Church just outside of Emmitsburg.  Elsie was a dedicated woman of faith and a true disciple-maker for Jesus.  She loved writing letters and sending cards to people.  She sponsored a child overseas many years ago.  Her name was Gladys, and Elsie corresponded with her regularly, as Gladys grew into adulthood.  Most of all, Elsie loved spending time with her family and with her many pets.
