Elvira Torres Obituary

Elvira Torres, age 92 of West Chicago, passed away peacefully in her sleep on Saturday, October 21, 2023 at home with her loving family by her side.

She was born November 30, 1930, in East Chicago, Indiana, the daughter of Rosendo and Jesusita Vasquez.

Elvira, was a beloved daughter to Rosendo and Jesusita and loving sister to Michael Vasquez and Amalia Torres. Elvira had a multifaceted personality, some of these characteristics some were very likeable and vivacious while others were not so much, as she was known for speaking her mind.  Her devotion to her husband and family was also well known by everyone.  She was a woman who was always well put together and enjoyed to the fullest what the world had to offer.  She loved to travel, entertain guests, cook and eat.  As a mother, she gave her children the freedom to be themselves, she advise them but allowed them to choose their own path.

She will be missed by all of us, but we should always remember there are no goodbyes for us, wherever she is, she will always be in our hearts.

Elvira is survived by her five children Ruben Moreno of Hines, James (Anita) Torres of Yorkville, Pilar Torres of West Chicago, Marina Torres of West Chicago, Raul Torres of Elgin; grandchildren Dante Cabrera, Gloria (Tom) Davis, Pilar (Efrain) Zavala, Tony (Raquel) Cabrera, Deanna (Terry) McGill, and James (Elys) Torres; 21 great grandchildren; sister Amalia Torres of Huntley, along with a multitude of nieces and nephews, and many relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her late husband Raul and her brother Michael.
