Neighbors: Postcard mailed in 1943 finally delivered to Elmira

A postcard sent to two Elmira sisters nearly seven decades ago arrived last week at the intended address, but it ended up in the hands of two different sisters.

The postcard, sent July 4, 1943, from Rockford, Ill., was intended for Pauline and Theresa Leisenring, who once lived in the home along Bridgman Street in Elmira.

Theresa and Pauline may never have known about the postcard.

Theresa died in 1954, Pauline in 1962, according to records at nearby Woodlawn Cemetery in Elmira.

The good news is health care is much less complicated than, er, delivering mail.
