She is also survived by 38 grandchildren, 94 great-grandchildren, and 3 great-great-grandchildren, and by 6 brothers, 1 sister and several nieces, nephews, and dear cousins. Eliova entered heaven the same day as her son-in-law Juan Garcia and was preceded in death by her parents, by her husband Severiano G. Arispe, by a daughter Jennifer Arispe, and by 4 brothers and a sister.

One of the 1st dresses I wore Ms. Arispe made. My last prom dress she made. I have so many memories of her bigger children coming and going while I was getting fitted in the front room or playing in the yard with the smaller ones. I value the smiles and the hugs she gave me all the tell your mama I said hello when she saw me as an adult. I'm saddened that she is gone but I know she was welcomed with the words..WELL DONE MY GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT. She will definitely be missed but she leaves us with great memories and an even better legacy. Love you all..Daphne
