Elsie resided in the Sidney area for over 25 years. She was born in Lawson, CO and raised in Idaho Springs but spent over a decade in Watertown, NY before returning to Colorado. Elsie was a Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, and friend. She was smart, stubborn, and the type of woman who would say exactly what she thought. Elsie was a devout Jehovah's Witness for over 50 years. She was devoted to her family, her faith and will be missed by many. Elsie was preceded in death by her husband: Clarence Nettles, of Watertown, NY; sister: Vivian Hauser; brother: Warren Ladd and her half-sisters: Margaret and Mildred. She is survived by her four children: David Nettles (Bessie), Connie Hughes (Don). Deborah Minshall and Steven Nettles; five grandchildren: Amy Andrews (Ed), Lynette Braun (Phil), Shawn Nettles, Ashley Hughes (Vince), and Shea Hughes and three great-grandchildren: Lorissa, Lily and Eleanor.
