Elsie was actively involved in her church, Living Waters, where she served as the food coordinator and contributed her time and efforts in various other capacities. She had a giving nature and a huge heart, always willing to help others. Elsie cherished her family, friends, and church family, and had a special place in her heart for her "other family" including Katrina, Shirley, Nadia, Tiffany, and Justice. Her husband, Walter B.

She touched so many patient's lives she still remains in contact 23 years later. Elsie had a special bond with mija Neveah, pretty grandson DeVante, her mar mar… beautiful granddaughter Savannah, and was thrilled when Josiah was born!  She was preceded in death by her parents, Sophia & Augustine Carrasco; brother Frankie Carrasco, sister Sandy Duarte, and three fur babies.
