Elfida Hernández


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

Elfida Hernández (73), the personification of a servant, became a Citizen of Heaven on Mother’s Day (5/10/21). While our hearts ache, we celebrate the many wonderful years the Lord shared her with us and blessed us with her care. She was a loving wife and mother with an even greater affection for her grandkids; there is nothing she would not do for any of us. Her hospitality and cooking skills are unique. She was survived by her husband of 56 years Dámaso Hernández and six grateful children: Daughters Rosemary Romero and her husband Jerry, Linda López and her husband Donny, Kellie Cobos and her husband Arthur, Sons Ricky and his wife Claudia, Andy and his wife Alma, and Isidoro and his wife Melinda. Her siblings Elizabeth, Ezequiel, and Daniel. She was preceded in death by her parents Jose and Tomasa Rodriguez and siblings Celia, Maria, Emma, Jose, Jesus, Juan, Luis. She was the baby whisperer to 29 grandkids and 24 + 1 great-grandkids. She was a true reflection of what a mother should be, and our Great God took her home on Mother’s Day.

Psalms 23

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
He leads me beside quiet waters,
He refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for His name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil, for you are with me;
your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
