Elsa entered eternal rest on June 26, 2022 Elsa was a primary school teacher in her home of Diego Martin and was loved by all of her students.

On June 26, 1971 she married Rudolph Michael Nelson. Their union produced two children: Joel and Keisha. Elsa was also a mother to her niece Wendy. As a member of St Vincent Ferrer Church in Brooklyn New York, Elsa provided years of faithful service. She was a youth Sunday School teacher and Eucharistic Minister. She served as member of both the St Vincent DePaul society and church Charismatic prayer group.

She served her church and community with love, wisdom and forthrightness until her health would no longer allow it. Elsa leaves a proud and loving legacy to her family.
