Verna Bramble-Elzey


V. Carol Bramble-Elzey, 59, of Federalsburg passed away peacefully Saturday, January 23, 2016 at Coastal Hospice at the Lake, Salisbury. Her loving husband and daughters never left her side.
Born December 31, 1956 in Easton she was a daughter of the late Gladys Parks Bradley and Calvin Florin Bradley.
For most of her working career she was a house keeper as well as a private sitter. Carol was a very caring person and that trait served her well as she provided wonderful compassionate care to her clients.
Fondly known as “Big Momma”, she enjoyed cooking and canning. Annually she would can fresh string beans, beets, kale and other vegetables. Many would enjoy her special apple sauce. A favorite past time was reading cook books but any book would do. Carol also enjoyed fishing. Family and special friends would jokingly call her “Poke” because of her love of the wild berries.
In earlier years she had attended the Park Lane Church.
On April 25, 2007 she married Samuel Elzey. Carol considered herself very blessed to have such a devoted loving husband who helped her through all the tough times as her health declined.
Surviving besides her husband are daughters Mary R. Collins, Heather R. Bramble, Brittney N Melvin and husband Aaron all of Federalsburg; brothers Calvin F. Bradley, Jr., Roy W. Williamson, Bryant Williamson and Randall Williamson; sisters Judy Gregg, Kathy Towers, Connie Ann Coulbourne, Cindy Brooks and Linda Coulbourne; grandchild Ayden Joseph Melvin along with many cousins, nieces and nephews.
