She adored and loved her family.  She was an honest and genuine loving person. Every conversation was a new story of her life experiences. When we think of Elida and her home, we remember the flowers, she loved her roses and when she use to live in California, she had in her front yard 9 beautiful rose bushes that bloomed year round for each of her sons. She enjoyed her daily coffee with her pan dulce, going to the stores and shopping for things she never needed, her trips to the salon to get her hair done, she loved taking trips to the cemetery to give flowers to her loved ones, she loved dancing in her kitchen, she also enjoyed a drink from time to time. She had her own day care for 20+ years and every child she cared for knew her as grandma and have kept in touch till her lasting days. She loved deeply and will be deeply missed by her family, friends and everyone that got to know her.
