Elsa Ballesteros

After a long and courageous battle with breast cancer which spread to her lungs in 2013 and continued to her spine, skull, and bones, Elsa succumb to her illness on December 15, 2015 at Baycrest Hospital.  She was the loved and cherished wife of Marc.  She is sorely missed by her loving family, her sisters Nilda and Miriam with husband John, daughter-in-law of Manuel, sister-in-law to Suzanne with husband Eugene, loving aunt to Ryan, Marissa, Marianne, Christian, and Jodi.  Elsa is sadly missed by many relatives and friends.
