Wife, mother, grandmother, sister and resident at Morningside Ministries at the Manor, Ms. Elvira E., celebrated her 105th birthday on February 10 at Morningside Ministries at the Manor.

“I don’t feel 105,” says Elvira giggling, “life has a lot of ups and downs but through it all I have stayed positive.”

Born in 1911 in El Paso, Texas, Elvira considers herself a true San Antonian since 1953, where she dedicated 20 years to her career as a cafeteria manager for the San Antonio Independent School District.

“Elvira is a remarkable lady who everyone here at the Manor admires,” said Joann Gamboa, Activities Director at the Morningside Ministries at the Manor, “ We can all learn from Elvira and her wisdom, I feel so honored to be able to serve and know her each and every day.”
