I first met her back in the late 70s when I started working for the City of Mondovi. Her son Paul worked there and her husband Roger worked for NSP. That was back in the day when NSP had a crew here in Mondovi and Roger would stop down to the city garage at break time and sometimes bring some of her good homemade baking along for us. After Paul got sick and was forced to retire Roger still stopped to visit with us. After he retired I would see the 2 of them at the store and would always have time to visit. After Roger passed away I would see her from time to time and yep always had time to visit. She was truely a great lady. Thoughts and prayers to the family.

I did not know Elvina until I joined the Mary Circle in 2013. She was a joy to have in the group and she always made sure we were well supplied with hard candy, especially the sugar-free lemon drops. Her faith was strong and I will miss her smile, and loving nature each time the Mary Circle meets.

One could never stop to visit without having a cup of coffee....no matter what time of day. She always had some kind of home made treat to go along with the coffee.
