Elisa González, a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and friend, departed this world on October 10, 2023. She leaves behind a lasting legacy of love and joy that will forever resonate with those who were fortunate enough to know her. Elisa's vibrant spirit and unwavering devotion to her family and friends touched the lives of many.

Born in the picturesque city of Nogales, Arizona on August 24, 1975, Elisa was a true child of the desert. From an early age, she embraced the beauty of her surroundings and felt most alive when embracing nature. However, it was the beach that captured her heart completely. Elisa's happiest moments were spent there with her loved ones by her side.

Elisa's adventurous nature inspired her to explore all that life had to offer. With one foot always out the door, she embarked on countless journeys with her children and grandchildren by her side. Whether it was exploring new destinations or creating cherished memories closer to home, Elisa's zest for life was contagious. Her love for travel and being one with nature shaped not only her own experiences but also those around her.

Her joyful demeanor radiated warmth and acceptance wherever she went. Elisa had a remarkable ability to make everyone feel welcomed and loved as if they were part of her own family. Her open heart knew no boundaries and she had a gift for making strangers feel like lifelong friends. To know Elisa was to experience the power of unconditional love.

One of Elisa's proudest accomplishments was raising a loving family. She dedicated herself wholeheartedly as a mother and embraced every moment with grace and laughter. Her children Nery Gonzalez, Giselle Manzanares Gonzalez, and Yvette Gonzalez were the center of her universe, and she beamed with joy watching them grow into remarkable individuals. Elisa's legacy will continue through her precious grandchildren, who will always feel her presence in their hearts.

Elisa's vibrant personality made every gathering unforgettable. She possessed the rare ability to lighten up any room and effortlessly became the life of the party. There was never a dull moment when she was near. Her laughter echoed in the hearts of those who knew her, and her infectious energy was simply irresistible.

In addition to her loving family, Elisa leaves behind cherished memories in the hearts of her husband Felipe Gonzalez, parents Jorge A Huerta and Bertha G Huerta, brothers Jorge A Huerta and Ramiro Huerta, sister Zulema Rodriguez, maternal grandparents Matilda Martinez and Porfirio A Rodriguez, paternal grandparents Blanca Romero and Antonio Huerta, and a multitude of friends whose lives she deeply touched.
