Born May 9, 1925 in Landis NJ, Elsie was the daughter of the late Harry S. and Elsie (Brayman) Maynard, Sr. She lived most of her life in the Bridgewater NJ area.

A lover of cats, Elsie also enjoyed dancing and listening to classical and the music of Frank Sinatra and reading, as well as watching old movies and her favorite game shows, “Jeopardy” and “Wheel of Fortune.”

Elsie also loved nature and being outdoors, watching deer go through her yard and the goldfish in the pond at her home in Bridgewater. She and her late husband, Jack, would travel often in the summer to Cape May NJ for rest and relaxation.

In addition to her parents, Elsie was predeceased by her sister, Nathalie Kemp in 2007, her brother, Richard Maynard in 2018, and her husband, John A. Christian in 2006. She is survived by her brother, Harry S. Maynard Jr., as well as several nieces and nephews.
