Obituary of Elsie Scharff
Elsie Scharff passed unexpectedly on March 29 2018. Married to Clement L Scharff who past in 1962, Elsie remained a determined independent woman and mother right up to the day before she died. She leaves behind a son Clement P and daughter in law Julie, a grandson, Army Sargent Clement J Scharff and his wife Jenny Lynn and two great grandchildren, Roy and Betty Joe Lynn. She also leaves the extended Boccella family Salvador, Joseph, Maria and Filomena who have given her support over the years. Elsie was an accomplished award winning florist who was always crafting, knitting, making wedding flowers for friends and painting. She has always been an avid Gardner and a life-long member of the Horticultural Society of South Jersey where she was known for her Christmas wreath programs, and judging Flower Shows. She volunteered at the Cherry Hill City Hall and Winslow Township Senior Center for Holiday decorating. A daughter of the depression and war years she was known for her great skill and patience in spite of adversity. Elsie had many friends of all races and colors and always had a giggle to keep her life happy. Her secret to a long life was speak up when something is wrong, eat fresh greens and beans, have ice cream whenever you want, and don't be a pain in the bottom, unless it is called for. The family will receive relatives and friends Tuesday morning 11:00AM-12:00PM at the COSTANTINO FUNERAL HOME, 231WEST WHITE HORSE PIKE BERLIN, NJ 08009. Entombment will take place privately. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to the Horticultural Society of South Jersey Scholarship Fund, PO box 8331, Cherry Hill, NJ, 08002.
