Rochelle Elsasser, age 53 of Marion, passed away on Wednesday July 5, 2017 at Marion General Hospital.

Rochelle was inherently generous, humble and giving. She would see a need and meet it, no matter if she had much or little to give. She lived her life by example, always doing for others. She loved life and the simple pleasures it gave; whether it be a great cup of coffee, the laughter of children, or the companionship of animals, she enjoyed it all. Her family was her proudest achievement, and the gift of her grandchildren was cherished above all.
