Elsa Ballesteros

June 5, 1944 - December 15, 2015

You were called home to bask in God’s Divine Providence just ten days before we rejoice the birth our Lord Jesus Christ.  As you celebrate Christmas in Heaven and you see me here below, I look for your loving and comforting Christmas wish.  Merry Christmas to you my dear sweetheart!

To all our departed loved ones, know that you are always loved, always missed, and will always be the missing part in our lives.  You are with us at all times and in all occasions, but more so on this Holy season, for your essence will forever glow in our hearts as the memories of you live on, and always will, for the rest of our lives.

Christmas in Heaven

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.
