An Elsie Young Farewell

​How will Chris Fabry Live begin the New Year? You only need one word: Elsie. Elsie Young was featured more than a dozen times on the program in the last few years—and in 2018 she was promoted to glory. Hear the celebration of her life presented on the air. You’ll hear her voice, a friend who knew her well, and some of her patented encouragement only Elsie could give. Start the year with Elsie on Chris Fabry Live.

Charles Smith

Charles Smith is a senior single adult who lives in Phoenix and retired from the Arizona State Library, as a Library Associate, in 2009.  He first met Elsie Young (popular guest on Chris Fabry Live!) at their church library in Tempe.  They became close friends after her husband, Harold, went to Heaven in 1994.  Elsie soon called Charles her "adopted son" (she never had any children) and they were blessed like a loving mother and son for over 25 years!  Charles was present when Elsie's prayer was answered at age 105, and she peacefully went Home to be with Jesus on March 16, 2018.
