I shall always remember Elisa or Chi (to her friends) as a woman full of life, sociable and has a likeable personality.
We are both seniors and we met in 2016 at St. Francis Church when I was a new immigrant. She made me feel very welcomed and that was the start of our beautiful friendship. She also invited me to serve as a volunteer at the 9 am mass at church.
We have our own Sunday routine - we served at church in the morning, followed by eating breakfast meals together, meeting other friends and going around downtown Calgary.
I went back to the Philippines for a vacation but was extended due to the pandemic. I was deeply affected and saddened with the news that she got sick. Due to the pandemic, I was not able to visit and see her anymore.
Chi, I want you to know that I loved you. I will always cherish those fun times I spent with you. Thank you my dear friend for the wonderful gift of friendship. I will definitely miss your fun-loving spirit. May your gentle soul rest in peace.

Elisa was a great friend to my mom. She was very thoughtful and caring. She was always around when my mom needed support. I will never forget her smile. May her soul rest in peace

I’ve known Elisa since the ‘90’s. She helped me got my job at 7-11 in 1995 but from some reason, when we both left the store, our communication lessened. It rekindled when I saw her again one day at the Ctrain station downtown. I learned that she was serving at St. Francis where I also serve but on a different mass time.
The most I miss about Elisa was our ‘alaskahan’. We loved to tease each other and that’s how we enjoyed each other’s company. Hindi uso sa amin ang pikon. The saying ‘laughter is the best medicine’ was the essence of our friendship. With Elisa there was no dull moment.
Two, three years ago, I visited her in the hospital because she became very ill.
I felt so bad because I’ve never seen her that weak. She was always full of life. She recovered a bit after that but the next time I saw her at St. Francis church, she was already in a walker and her health continued to deteriorate. Even then, we still managed to make fun of each other (without hurting each other’s feelings) just to bring the laughter one more time. I never thought it would be the last time.
If there was one thing I can attest about Elisa is that...she was a good mother. She probably was not a typical mother but I knew in my heart she was a loving and caring mother and a loving and thoughtful grandmother.
Elisa - I will miss you. I will miss my ‘alaska buddy’. I know I will never meet another one like you ever again. Thank you very much for the one-of-a-kind friendship.
Rest in the Eternal Peace of our Lord.
