Baker.
She is survived by two children, her oldest daughter Esther Almanzar and Eloy Almanzar, 8 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren, and two siblings Eva Cobarrubio (Mann) and Adam Cobarrubio.
Elvira spent the early part of her life working hard alongside her childhood sweetheart, and husband Enrique of 71 years, to build a loving home for her children and entire family.
Her passion as a caretaker did not go unnoticed. She highly esteemed family values so much so by helping family and friends. She helped take care of her mother and brother, Henry, and raised two of her grandchildren. She worked as a foreman of Tri-Valley Growers until she retired.
Elvira loved the Lord and was a life-time member of St. Anne's Catholic Church. She ministered alongside her husband holding pre-marital classes in their Lodi home. She supported and ministered alongside Deacon Porfi Cisneros of St. Anne’s Catholic Church.
