Elli Wise was born in Germany to German from Russia parents. Her mother was born in Sangerowka, Bessarabia, and her father was born in Osmangea, Dobrudscha (Romania). Her father's parents moved to Dobrudscha from Bessarabia. Elli's ancestors, on both sides of her family, lived in both the Bessarabia and Odessa areas.

Elli immigrated to the United States in 1969 and currently resides in Frankfort, Kentucky. She has been employed with Lloyd's of London, England for 26 years and has raised a family. She is a lifetime member of GRHS.
