Dearest Pat, we think of you with love and support at the loss of your mother. She was undoubtedly a good mother to have given the world such a wonderful, giving daughter. We wish you and your family our condolences and sympathy.

My condolences to Steven and Patricia and family. I will always remember Elba as a joy-filled woman, so committed to her faith and her Church.
I remember the many times she, Felix and my parents (Manny & Helen Marin) would enjoy time together at the Parish.
May she rest in peace. Praying for the family. I know how it is to loose a mother.

My memories of Elba were that she also had a smile, especially around children. I remember how much she loved watching my daughter whenever we would visit. She would smile watching her play the piano, and even helped teach her Ode to Joy. Elba was a kind and generous woman, and she will be missed. Deepest condolences to the family.

Elba was one of the first women to welcome me to St Mark back in 1994 and introduce me to the SOLG. I will always treasure our pan dulce and coffee afternoon visits. My condolences to her family, she will be remembered as a kind and faithful friend.
