Elsie Wefers, 97, of East Falmouth, passed away peacefully at home on April 7, 2017. She was the beloved wife of the late Joseph Wefers.

Elsie graduated from Lawrence High School. She worked as a wiring technician at AT&T in North Andover for many years until her retirement to the Cape. Still wanting to keep active, she took a job with the Steamship Authority reservation office for several years. After moving to Cape Cod she became a parishioner at St. Anthony’s Church. She enjoyed bowling, traveling, and spending time with her family and friends. She was renowned in her small neighborhood for delivering one of her Irish Soda Breads to every mailbox on the street every year at Christmas. She was a loving mother, aunt and friend and will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

Elsie is survived by her son Dan Wefers of East Falmouth, her godson William Martin of South Carolina, and 3 nieces and nephews.
