Elvia, I didn't know you very long, but when I met you, it felt as though I'd known you for a very long time. You were so kind and helpful to the new girl, I knew I could always call you and you would willing guide me with any help that I may have needed. I feel so blessed that our paths crossed. I will continue to pray for peace and comfort for your family and all the lives you touched! Rest in Peace my friend!

Elvia had the unique ability to make everyone feel special; whether it was a customer or a recently hired teller. She treated every person with respect and demanded the same in return.

Elvia was always a willing accomplice to any mischief. Even though she didn’t need any help, any time she and Diane Hodges were together, trouble was not far away. Ha.

I was only able to share a decade plus of her career at the bank, but I will always appreciate the memories. I am comforted knowing she is no longer in pain but is enjoying a pumpkin spiced latte and the next Cowboys game.

Elvia, I loved when you came to the Desoto Branch to help cover someone being out. I learned a lot from you, not only about banking but standing up for your beliefs and having confidence in myself. You will be truly missed. My prayers go out to your family.

Elvia, You got up every day to come to work and take care of business and our customers to the best of your ability. This quote by Roger Staubach describes you and how I strive to be always "There are no traffic jams going the extra mile." I have so many great memories and will miss you immensely. Love you! Linda

A strong soul - Elvia

Shared by Amy King on February 25, 2021
Elvia,
You were such a spark in our lives up here at Inwood.  I remember talking and laughing with you about life and how funny and unpredictable it is.  As I go through my days, there really isn't a time when you don't come to mind.  I've always been fuzzy on the details and stories but when I think of strength, I think of you.  Wish I had the chance to let you know how much you meant to those who work here.

We will miss you!

Ms. Elvia - The Rowlett Branch Superhero

Shared by JOHANNY ESTRADA on February 23, 2021
I will always remember Ms. Elvia for how brave she was. It didn't matter if a customer was ten feet tall, or a suspicious person was walking around the branch. She made it KNOWN that she doesn't back down. On one occasion, my husband came to the branch to pick me up for lunch and Ms. Elvia didn't recognize his car. She knocked on the car window and asked him who he was and what he was doing on bank property! LOL! My husband said, "...that little lady scared me!" It was hilarious, but we would always tell her she could not just go out and talk to random people! Its dangerous! She would just shake her head and say she didn't care and go back to her office. 
Man, I miss her. I didn't work for her for very long but she was an amazing mentor. She made me strive to do my best because I knew that if she was checking my work it had to be perfect. And at the same time, she showed me so much grace. 
She always asked about how my babies were doing, and she would even share some details about her family life with me. I could tell she absolutely adored her family, especially her grandbabies. My prayers go out to them, and anyone else who was close to Ms. Elvia. Our Superhero.
