Elsie Hoyt

Elsie Hoyt, 94, of Bellevue died October 20, 2014. She was born on December 7, 1919 in Bothwell, Scotland to Sarah and Alexander Law. She entered the United States through Blaine, WA in 1923 when she was 3 years old and settled in Tacoma.

She met the love of her life, Loren Hoyt, when she was in high school. They were married in 1939 and raised three daughters, Janice, Judy, and Joan.

Elsie worked for the Northern Pacific Railroad in Tacoma, and after she and Loren moved to Redmond in 1968, she worked for the Burlington Northern in Seattle. Elsie knew how to have fun. Her favorite place to go was the family cabin in Home on Carr Inlet, but she and Loren also enjoyed many happy times on the golf course at Brae Burn. They were active grandparents, creating close ties with their 6 grandchildren.

Elsie was predeceased by Loren in 2004 and is survived by daughters Janice McNamara, Judy Lux and Joan Horn and son-in-laws Paul Gillespie and John Horn. Her six grandchildren include Rob Rettig, Ryan Rettig, Loren Lux, David Lux, Claire Fenton and Louis Horn and 9 great-grandchildren Robbie, Chloe, and Jack Rettig, Michael and Matthew Lux, Jason and Riley Lux, and Ramona and Ruby Fenton.
