Elvie was born in Baltimore, Maryland and was raised in Natick by her aunt and uncle Isabel and James Fair.
She graduated from Natick High School in 1948 before attending Framingham State College.
She worked for the Telephone Company as a service representative until the birth of her first child, Maureen and then devoted herself to her family as a full-time homemaker, a role which she cherished. Along with spending time with her family, one of Elvie’s joys was traveling which she did extensively with her husband Don including many trips to her favorite destination of Positano Italy. Elvie was a passionate reader and a common sight during the summer in Wells, ME was Elvie on the beach enjoying a good book. Elvie laughed easily and was happiest surrounded by her family. Elvie was a devoted member of St Patrick’s Parish in Natick and took great comfort in her faith.
Elvie’s family would like to thank Riverbend of South Natick and MetroWest Homecare & Hospice for their wonderful, compassionate care.
