Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico name at birth Elba Maldonado. Elba came to Seattle, WA at the age of 12 with her younger sister Elsie. She’s a mother to 5 children, and she has 4 grandchildren. She worked hard all her life, a hard working single mother is what she was. She did the best she could with what she had, she always took care of those that came in her life. If you knew her or was ever in her presence, you’re a better person because of her. A loving mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, cousin, auntie, and friend is what she was. There wasn’t a soul like Elba, and there will never be another like her. She will be missed by so many, she’s most definitely one of a kind. We love you mom so much, fly high my Queen.
