They retired and moved to Cerralvo, Nuevo Leon, Mexico in 2005. After losing her husband on July 12, 2011, Elvia relocated to Houston, Texas to enjoy her retirement with children and grandchildren. She was a person full of life. She enjoyed music, dancing and socializing and a great barbecue. She loved having her hair and nails done. She took pleasure in just sitting outside on a bright sunny day admiring the plants and flowers she so loved. But the one thing she loved overall, was spending time with her children and grandchildren. She was a great mother and wonderful grandmother and will be dearly missed.
