Elsie couple leaves area after 35 years
The community of Elsie said their good-byes to Harvey and Jeannie Brott on Tuesday, Sept. 17.
The Brotts are leaving Elsie to move to North Platte and be closer to their kids. They have four children, Shelia Mahler, Doug Brott, Jill Terry, and Barbara Larsen, along with five grandchildren.
After living in Elsie for over 35 years, Harvey and Jeannie say they will miss everyone a lot.
The Brott family moved to Elsie from Roscoe back in the 70’s when Harvey took over as president of the Commercial State Bank. He held that position for about 22 years and then became vice president of the bank for an additional three years before retiring.
They said their favorite part of living in Elsie all this time was the people and the country-style living. If the size of the crowd at the reception is any indication, they will be greatly missed.
