Elsie May Trout was born May 27, 1929, to Benjamin and Ilah Trout of rural Tracy. On October 3, 1954, she married Albert (Bert) Heacock with whom she shared 55 years together, and raised their family of four children in Walnut Grove.

Elsie was one of twelve children growing up on a farm. She learned to sew and garden, skills which served her well and she freely shared her knowledge with others. She loved anything natural and became well-read on the benefits of plants and herbs.

Elsie is survived by her children, Willy, Kathy, Karen and Wade; three grandchildren and four great-grandchildren; one sister, Inez; and many nieces and nephews.

Elsie was preceded in death by her parents, husband, Bert, and ten siblings.

We look forward to the time when the Lord’s Prayer is fulfilled and “God’s will takes place, as in heaven, also on earth.”
