June 21, 1918 — October 18, 2021

Elsie Bellucci Whitcomb, 103, of Denver, North Carolina passed away Monday, October 18, 2021.

She enjoyed watching Fox News, playing bingo, dancing, scrapbooking, and traveling to Las Vegas.  Above all, Elsie loved her family dearly and cherished time spent with them.  She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.
