Mollie Negem Eltife Dies

Mollie Negem Eltife raised three children who grew up to be leaders in the Tyler community.

Her oldest son, Richard, owns Rick's On The Square. Her daughter Laura, is a petroleum landman. Her youngest son, Kevin, was a former Tyler mayor, and is now a state senator.

Mrs. Eltife died yesterday from cancer at the age of 81. Her children say she was deeply rooted in her Catholic faith, and that she loved to cook. They say anyone that met her was a friend for life.

Funeral services for Mrs. Eltife will be held at The Cathedral Of The Immaculate Conception at 423 South Broadway in Tyler this Tuesday at 10:00 a.m.
