Elsa Sanchez, daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother. She was a woman filled with so much love for all those around her. Her vibrant personality, loving demeanor and contagious laughter left everyone in her presence smiling. She was always the life of the party and left everyone mesmerized by her smooth rhythm and dance moves. Once the music hit you saw those hips in motion all the way until the end. Elsa was all about the TURKEY at bowling and she knew exactly how to bring home a team victory. She loved to play dominoes, cook, laugh and knew exactly how to calm a crying baby.

Elsa was adored by everyone who she had contact with, she was hardworking and driven to support her family daily. Her proudest accomplishments are her three children Mercedes, Israel and Manuel.
