Elida was born in San Antonio 9/4/39. She was the daughter of the late Albert M. Chavez and the late Sofia G. Chavez. A devoted daughter, Elida took meticulous care of her mother during her own battle of Alzheimer's disease. She was also preceded in death by her brother, Ernest Salazar.

Her devotion to the Lord, prayers, and glorifying God carried her through her being a hardworking single mother, working 3 jobs. She was always there to help, in any way she could. Her generosity was like no other. Elida was always giving and always loving. She attended Lifeworx Christian Church for the past 5 years and was loved and well known as "mamma Elida". Her passions included her birdhouses and cross crafts, gardening, cooking the best tortillas, birds, board games with family, and singing with her brothers.
