M. Elsie Beswick (99) of Greenwood, IN., passed away October 22, 2020. She graduated from Arsenal Technical High school in 1930 and was married more than 67 years to John C. Beswick until his death in 2007. She was a member of Southport United Methodist Church.
During World War II, Elsie was secretary to the Commanding Officer of Corozel General Depot in the Panama Canal Zone.

After retirement, she and her husband moved to their home on Lake Freeman near Monticello where they taught their beloved grandchildren to swim and water ski. They also enjoyed many trips to Las Vegas during their retirement years.
She is survived by her son, John L. Beswick, grandchildren Stacy Stuber (Jim), Shawn Beswick, five great-grandchildren, two nephews and a niece.
