Elsa grew up in the Fairbury area and received her formal education attending rural Jefferson county schools. She was united in marriage with James Wesley Dafford on May 5, 1952 at Fairbury. They continued to live in Fairbury until 1964, when they moved to California, making their home in the Modesto area. In 1999, Elsa moved to Burr Oak.
