Elsa Ronelle Jost, 78, of Stowe, passed away on Wednesday May 12, 2021 at Reading Hospital.
Born in Pottstown, she was the daughter of the late Donald and Elva (Hamilton) Jost.
Elsa attained her GED and then went on to attend secretary school and tech school in her younger years. Throughout the years, Elsa was very fortunate to live in Colorado, Texas, Florida, and Kansas before moving back to PA. She had a zest for life and enjoyed a good party. In her more recent years, she worked as a monitor for a school bus transportation company. She enjoyed crossword puzzles in her spare time and was also an avid reader. Elsa loved animals and could be found outside at home admiring and feeding them. She was lovingly known as (Great) Nanny Elsa.
Surviving are sons Timothy Eck, and Michael Hartzell; daughter Tamara Deboer; sister Sydne Romig, wife of Rick; grandchildren Nicole Deboer, Valerie Stetler, wife of Dan, David Deboer II, husband of Samantha, Tiffany Eck, Christopher Eck, Teddy Lawson and Marissa Hartzell; great grandchildren Caitlin McLaughlin, Lily Stetler, and Mason Kopystecki; and her best friend for 64 years, June Cook. Along with her parents, she is predeceased by her brother Ronald Jost and grandson Kyle Eck.
