Elise was a talented and admirable professional who was meticulous in her work. She was a fantastic representative of the community, particularly in Mount Vernon, where she was raised.
Above all, Elise was a fiercely loved and dedicated wife to Graig Henriques, a photojournalist at WCBS, and mother to her daughter Grace. Elise died in a neighbourhood hospital. It is unknown what caused the death. 51 was Elise’s age.
