Neighbors Say 'It was Very Quite'
A mother of two sons from her earlier marriage, Elsie tied the knot with head of United Utilities in June 2019. Mogford, 65, was previously married to Barbara, who died from breast cancer in 2016. Mogford has two daughters from his previous marriage.

Neighbors around the couple's Â£1.5million farmhouse revealed to the outlet that family and friends were seen crying outside the property on Tuesday.
"It is very quiet around here but there were quite a few people outside the Mogfords' property on Tuesday crying and hugging. It's very sad. The rumor is she had a heart attack, but nobody really knows what has happened," a neighbor said.
