Elva was a very kind, loving, generous woman. No matter when you stopped by it was always "you'll stay for dinner"....she always quickly whipped it up!! The first day I met her she said, "well I know you're 'perfect' because Dan said he wouldn't get married until he found the 'perfect woman'....LOL...I'll never forget it!!! She was always willing and able to babysit when needed and treated my children as if they were her own grandchildren. Thank you Elva for loving me and treating me with such kindness. Rest in peace....I know you're now with Verlie and Don. Love and hugs, Marlise Nelson
