Elsie E. (Hazeldine) Casale, 94, of Glastonbury, passed away unexpectedly at Middlesex Hospital on Friday, May 24, 2019. She was the widow of Eugene L. Casale, and the sister of three brothers, previously deceased, Ronald, Charles, and Roy Hazeldine.
Born in Essex, England, Elsie was the daughter of the late Leonard and Ethel (Smith) Hazeldine. She spent her younger years in England and immigrated to the U.S. in 1945 residing in East Hartford. Later, Elsie moved to Glastonbury, where she has resided since 1964.
