Obituary for Elvira Ann Menchaca

Elvira Ann (Merfels) Menchaca passed away at the age of 93 on Saturday, September 16th, 2017. She is survived by her children, two sons: Benny Menchaca, and wife Tina, and Steve Menchaca and wife Patricia; a daughter Nancy McDonald and husband, Rodney; eleven grandchildren; nineteen great grandchildren; as well as one great great grandchild. She is preceded in death by her husband, Benito “Benny” Menchaca, and parents, Raymond and Alma Merfels. Elvira resided in Helotes, Texas for 77 years and Bandera, Texas for the last 16 years. She loved cooking, baking, sewing and needlepoint.
A wife, mother and grandmother is the legacy we have from her. She taught us love, how to fight, gave us strength and had the kindest heart. She had a lot of honorary children and grandchildren through the years that felt that same love and strength that her kids were showered with. She fought to shelter and protect us all in any way that she could, as a wife, mother, and guardian. She gave her best to all of us, and now it is her time to rest.
