On the early morning of April 5th, 2021, Elba Iris Reyes died unexpectedly from heart failure at the Golden Gate Rehabilitation Center in Staten Island, New York City. She was 69 years old.

Elba was born on March 6th, 1952 in Puerto Rico where her parents Martina Padilla and Cosme Damian Reyes resided. She graduated from Lorenzo Coballes Gandia HS in Hatillo, Puerto Rico. She went on to attend the New York Tech College where she completed the pharmacist technician program. Elba was a dedicated pharmacist technician who worked at Duane Reade and CVS pharmacy in Brooklyn, New York.

Elba is survived by her son Elvin Manuel Torrado-Reyes, nephew Luis Rodriguez, niece Elizabeth Marie Ayala-Reyes, great nephew Jordan Rodriguez, and cousins Carmen “Anna” Ruiz-Reyes, Carmen “Iris” Delgado, Mitzy Reyes. She is also survived by Evelyn Colon, Elizabeth Colon, David Colon, Edgar Villanueva, Sonia Villanueva, Tiffany Villanueva, Jonathan Villanueva, Emma Moya, Sandra Moya. Also close family-friends she is survived by include the Concepcion-Rios Family, the Santiago family, and the Torrado-Reyes family.

Elba Reyes loved to cook, dance to salsa and merengue, and travel to Puerto Rico. Elba was dedicated to her son Elvin Torrado. The unexpected loss brings us deep sadness and sorrow. However there still remains the conscious belief that the beloved good people we are surrounded by are gone way too soon. Elba gave all her strength and will in fighting against the effects of her diabetes and a recent above knee amputation. Elba was her son’s advocate, guardian angel, and friend. She always looked out for her loved ones, that's just the type of person she was.

Elba was preceded in death by her parents Cosme Damian Reyes and Martina Padilla, sisters Migdalia “Yayi'' Reyes, Irma Reyes, and nephew Elvin “Evi” Torrado. Elba Reyes will be cremated by the DeRiso funeral home in Brooklyn, New York. Elba’s wishes were to be with her beloved parents in Hatillo, Puerto Rico. Memorial and burial in Puerto Rico will follow.
