Elf grew up in Germany during WWII, immigrating to Canada in 1952 when she was 18 years old. She married Wolfgang Werner, a fellow German, soon after she arrived. They lived in Toronto where she worked for Singer Sewing Machines as a bookkeeper. They later settled in Cornwall where she taught art at a local college. They traveled extensively throughout North and Central America, falling in love with the spectacular colors of the southwest.
After Wolf’s death in 1980, Elf continued traveling, later marrying Allen Dalley in1983.They had an adventurous life farming and ranching in Summit, Utah. After their divorce, Elf moved to Parowan where she lived out her remaining years viewing her beloved mountains.
Elf was a friend to everyone, laughing and telling stories at the drop of a hat.Her positive attitude meant people loved to be with her and felt of her kindness and generosity. She taught primary for many years and loved to see the little ones she taught as they grew up.
Preceding Elf in death were her father and mother, Josef and Marie (Merz) Holz; step father and step mother, Heinrich Proff and Regine Hofmann; brother, Georg; and sister, Anneliese (Lutz) Auch-Schwartz.
