Elvirita was a dedicated mother and homemaker. She had an unwavering faith in God and was a prayer warrior who constantly prayed for others. She never stopped learning and at the age of 77, she enrolled in ESOL classes at San Jacinto College North campus.

Elvirita was predeceased by her loving husband of 44 years, Fernando Gonzalez, son, Fernando (Nando) Gonzalez and three sisters, Maria Luisa Villar, Oralia Torres, and Hortensia Castillo.
