Dear Del and Loving Daughters:

Let me start by saying I loved Elda dearly. She was a little older than I was and therefore we looked up to her as a role model. When I came into the family Elda already had Shelly I think. One thing I and anyone you spoke to always said Elda and Del had the prettiest girls. They all had those dimples and beautiful eyes. But besides making beautiful babies Elda was one of a kind. She loved to laugh and joke but had a heart of gold. Her aunt was my former mother in law and we did lots of family things together. All I can say is there is another player sitting around the table with Aunt Nell saying "Whose deal is it" . There is not a memory I have of Elda where she was not laughing. Rest in peace my friend. Love Cynthia Mentel

My sister Elda was a pain in the rear as we were kids. She would invite my brother Gerald and I to play school but she would always be the teacher. Need I say more as to who was always in charge. But as we grew older she turned out to be such a wonderful, caring and lovable person. I will miss her so very much and will pray for her that she may now be in the arms of our Lord. I cannot say enough about the loving care and sacrifice my brother-in-law Del provided during my sister's horrible illness. Her daughter Natalie was also a huge part in the care of her father Del during this time cooking meals for him and helping out with the care of my sister. May God bless Elda!

My love and prayers are with her family.Please know that I loved Elda very much. She was like a sister I never had. But I do know she is giving them trouble now, because she can't play the slots in heaven. She will always be in my prayers.

I'm so deeply sorry. I loved Aunt Elda alot. She was a big part of my childhood. She, Uncle Del, Shelley and Natalie lived on Catina Street like we did - my mother Shirley, my father Ed Du Faur, & my sister, Cynthia, so we saw Aunt Elda, Uncle Del, Shelley & Natalie alot at that time when we were very young girls.
Shelley, myself and my sister were the exact same age.
Aunt Elda was so precious with one of the best personalities in the world. She remains so vivid in my mind's eye. And she was a great cook. I see alot of Aunt Elda in her children. They have an incredible sparkle just like her. She was a wonderful person. So funny, so smart. Everyone loved her. She was the kind of person everybody just gravitated towards.
She had such a cute look. That pixie hair cut and twinkle in her eyes. That beautiful smile she had!
She was one of my very favorite aunts. She'll always be in my heart. I always thought that she and handsome & charismatic Uncle Del were such a beautiful & fun couple.
Aunt Elda was vivacious, funny, & talkative. Uncle Del was calm, with a beautiful sunbeam smile & he didnt say alot. They offset each other so beautifully.
I will miss Aunt Elda.
The last time I saw her was on the extremely sad occasion of Ramond's funeral. But despite her deep pain, she still sparkled. This was before alzheimers. She was just wonderful. I was so sad about Raymond's death but it was so beyond great to be with Aunt Elda.
My wonderful grandmother, Mary Eunice Brouillette Lemoine Yuest had alzheimers too. My grandmother & grandfather, Adrian Lemoine Yuest were a big part of Elda, Raymond, & Gerald's young life. They stayed with them.
My grandmother's beloved brother was Aunt Elda's father.
My mother, Shirley Ann Yuest Du Faur- Mary Eunice & Adrian Lemoine Yuest's daughter- loved Aunt Elda alot. Aunt Elda was so lovable. She made my mother laugh.
I hope they are all in heaven together.
