On April 30, 1951, Elida was born to Raymond and Guadalupe Sosa in Carlsbad, New Mexico. She was the beloved partner of Ramiro Sarellano. Elida was a member of the Assumption Catholic Church, where she taught Catechism classes. She also faithfully delivered the Holy Communion to the elderly. Elida’s heart was for service, and her life was dedicated to being the best woman for her partner, family, church, and community.
Prior to retirement, Elida worked as a Teacher’s Aide for the Roswell Independent School District. She had previously worked for the Motor Vehicle Department as well. Elida loved her bingo, casino, music, and dancing. She was a woman with many interests and talents that include sewing, reading, writing poetry, baking, needlepoint, and quilting. Elida had a big heart for stray animals, and she would rescue them.
Elida’s greatest joy in life was spending time and making memories with her loved ones, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews; they were the light of her life. Her presence will be dearly missed by friends, family, and all who were lucky enough to have known Elida.
