Charlotte Mae (Katsch) Elison, age 97, of Roosevelt, Utah and Oakley, Idaho, passed away October 4, 2020, at Parkside Manor in Roosevelt. 

            Charlotte was born July 31, 1923, in Fairburn South Dakota, to Alfred Henry and Nellie Lowe Katsch.  She was involved in 4-h growing up in Fairburn.  She moved to California and lived with her cousin Della, in Los Angeles after graduating from high school.  She worked at a pharmaceutical supply company where she met her soon to be husband, Glen.  She married Charles Glen Elison on June 10, 1945, in Oakley Idaho, and their marriage was solemnized on May 24, 1956, in the Idaho Falls Temple.  Glen died May 4, 2012.

            Charlotte and Glen raised their family in Oakley, where the family engaged in farming land that has been in the family for over 100 years.

            She was a convert-member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and served as a Cub Scout leader and a Primary teacher for many years.  She also served as a Relief Society president, and as an ordinance worker with her husband in the Boise, Idaho Temple for over 11 ½ years.  She loved to do family history work and felt a responsibility to search out the records and history of her ancestors.  She loved her husband and was very devoted to raising and nurturing her children.  She adored her children’s spouses and her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  She had a genuine love for all those she would come in contact with.  She also possessed a great sense of humor.  She was loved by all that had the privilege of knowing her. 

            Charlotte is survived by a daughter, Linda M. (Gary) Strieby, Bakersfield, California; four sons, Michael G. (Ruth) Elison, Twin Falls, Idaho; Charles R. Elison, Orange County, California; Alfred H. (Connie) Elison, Roosevelt, Utah; and Wayne D. (Bonnie) Elison, Pocatello, Idaho; 15 grandchildren, 31 great-grandchildren, 5 great-great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.

            She was preceded in death by her husband, Glen; her parents, Alfred & Nellie Katsch; her two brothers, George & Dale Katsch; and a sister, Marilyn Lakner.
