Family owned & family focused since 1952

Elisa Winder

It is with great sadness that our beloved mother and grandmother, Elisa Winder has departed this mortal life, on May 8th, 2018. She was born on February 24, 1941 in Piura, Peru. She is survived by her husband of 56 years Raul Angel Winder, her 5 children, and 19 grandchildren. She lived for her family and was a constant blessing to them by giving constant encouragement, and endless love.  Her repeated teaching of being close to one another is the hallmark of her legacy. Elisa was an inspiration to all by serving those around her in a charitable and loving way. In 1974 she joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  It was here that her faith in God grew stronger.  In 1981 she was sealed to her family in the Oakland California Temple.  Her great example of unselfishness, and her passion for giving to those in need, is one that will forever be remembered. We are saddened by her departure but are celebrated by her life.  She is a beacon for her family and her subtle counsel for our everyday challenges will be the things we will miss greatly. Most of all we will miss the simple voicemails she would leave that said, “hola, this is mami, I love you.” 

Funeral services will be held May 18, 2018 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saint building in Mesa, Arizona.  10305 E. Southern Avenue.  A viewing will be held at 9 AM and the service will follow at 10 AM.

    Mi querida Eliza que bendición conocerte aunque fue un corto tiempo el cariño y la amistad parecía de toda la vida, tu hija postiza como me decias. Gracias por todos esos maravillosos consejos, enseñanzas y por ser siempre un ejemplo para los demás.
    Siempre te recordaremos

    Tia Elissa siempre te guardaré en mi corazón. Gracias por tus palabras de apoyo cuando vine a vivir a este país. Te quiero mucho y espero en Dios que algun dia todos nos volvamos todos a encontrar. Goza de la presencia del Señor ❤️

    We love Elisa dearly, as well as each member of her beautiful family. We are so glad for their years in Livermore and the legacy of love. Elisa worked so hard to improve her English so she could speak in that language at Ivan’s mission farewell!. I was working on learning some Spanish, so for a few months, we would talk on the phone weekly to improve both! Her determination and optimistic approach to life have remained with me. My heart is with you all.

      Thank you Sister Brough! You and the bishop have been very good to our family. We love you all!

    Hola familia, Soy Sandra Arteaga conocí a Elisa en Livermore en casa de Raquel otra amiguita y tengo muy buenos recuerdos de ella. Las tres bromeabamos mucho y supe por Raquel que estaba malita pero fue hasta hoy que supimos que Diosito la llamó a su presencia. Enviamos nuestras condolencias a toda la familia y enviamos oraciones al cielo por nuestra querida amiguita. Descanse en Paz
