Elsie May (Trout) Heacock, 93, died September 2, 2022, at Palisades Manor, in Garretson, SD.

A Memorial Service will be held Saturday, October 15, 2022, at 12:45pm, at the Kindom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses. (3200 E 6th St. Sioux Falls, SD)

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

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 is 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.”

    My Aunt Elsie!!! I love her wonderful, friendly smile. I owe her, and her older sister, (My Mother) for giving me a lifelong love of sewing, embroidery, quilting. I was a mere 11 year old when Aunt Elsie came home from college and patiently taught me to sew. She taught me to read a pattern, sew the correct way, ease in bias’, even buttonholes by hand…and made me take them out if not satisfied with how they looked. My first project with her was a white eyelet blouse. I loved her then and will miss her now. She was blessed with a good long life…Thank the Lord!
