Friday, April 1, 1949
Date of Passing: 
Saturday, December 26, 2020

Diane “Dee” Elizabeth Elsnic (nee Carr), 71, passed away at home in Apple Creek on December 26, 2020 after suffering a stroke that was complicated by lung cancer.

Dee was born April 1, 1949 in Columbus, OH to the late Carrol and Mary Bahner Carr. She grew up in Wilmington and in 1968 graduated from the School of the Brown County Ursulines in Fayetteville. That year, Dee married her love, the late Ervin “Erv” Elsnic. They resided in the Chicago area, eventually settling in Aurora, IL, where they raised their four children before relocating to Columbus in 1995.

Dee is survived by her children, Amy (Kevin) Clark of San Diego, CA; Greg Elsnic of Chicago, IL; Megan Vermaaten of Wooster; and Erin (Daniel) Linden of Apple Creek. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Bryson and Cason Clark; Jake, Lily, Cole, and Dean Vermaaten; Evelyn and David Linden; her sisters Kevi (Ben) Jones of Columbus, Leslie (Craig) Beal of Jamestown, Julie Roberts of Ave Maria, FL, sister-in-law Janet Bulin of Chicago; and several nieces, a nephew, great-nieces, and great-nephews. She was predeceased by her husband Erv, sister Susan Carr, and her parents.

Dee loved to knit and crochet—her afghans are coveted by family and friends. She was immensely proud of her family and enjoyed sharing her many talents with them. She will be remembered for her strength, smile, infectious laugh, and will be greatly missed by those who love her.

Condolences

Dear Megan and family,
I am so sorry for the loss of your mom. I remember meeting her a few times when I was visiting Rachel and she happened to be visiting you all in Oswego. She struck me as such a happy and loving person who loved her family. I hope you find some peace in your memories of her.

It was with great sadness that we learned of Dee’s passing. We have so many great memories of the years we spent as neighbors and friends in Aurora. Our thoughts are with you all. Cherish all those many laughs we all shared on Crescent Lane.
