Elsie Gyurko of Caro, age 93, passed away peacefully on Saturday, January 9, 2016, following a lingering illness. Elsie was born September 7, 1922 in Deford, the daughter of the late Balas and Rose Nagy. She was united in marriage with Andrew Gyurko on October 23, 1943, and they enjoyed seventy-one years of marriage until his death in May of 2015. Elsie’s first job was working at the candy counter of Dibble’s Dime Store in Caro. From there, she was the receptionist at Dr. Savage’s office on Frank Street and then the W. J. Moore Telephone Company in Caro. She eventually joined the Tuscola County Clerk’s Office where she prided herself on her perfect typing skills. After her marriage to Andrew, she became a wonderful homemaker. Elsie loved her flower garden and considered her outdoor work as therapy. After her children were older, she returned to work for General Cable in Cass City until her retirement.
Elsie is survived by three children and their spouses, Edwin Gyurko of Caro, Harriet & Gene Trisch of Springfield, Maine, Carol & Jeff Quinn of Caro; grandchildren, Ryan & Shelly Trisch of Searsport, Maine, Eric Quinn of Granger, Indiana and Kelly & Erik Robinson of Rochester; three great-grandchildren, Colton Trisch of Verona Island, Maine, Quinn Robinson and Kayla Robinson, both of Rochester; four nephews, Brian & Mary Wilkinson of Long Beach, California, David & Pat Wilkinson of Caledonia, Carl & Dianne Gyurko of Caro, and Art Gyurko of Caro.

The family would like to especially thank all of her wonderful caregivers.
