Suzaya, Elvira C.

Elvira C. Suzaya, 91, of Farmington, entered heaven peacefully on Sunday, October 16th, at her home surrounded by her loving family. She was the daughter of the late Mariano and Mariquita (Cabezas) Suzaya of Peru, South America and immigrated to Farmington in the late 1940’s. She held many jobs and endured many hardships, all while raising her nieces and nephews. Through her hard work and dedication, Elvira achieved success and economic security as a single woman. She worked at Stanadyne Automotive Corporation in Windsor until her retirement and was a devoted member of Our Lady of Sorrows Church where she was one of the founders of SR DE LOS MILAGROS (The Brotherhood of Lord of Miracles of Peru). She was also one of the founding members of the former Peruvian Club in Hartford. Elvira will be remembered as a generous and charitable woman who helped many people come to America to achieve the American Dream. She loved people and was loved by many, and will be greatly missed by her family and friends. Elvira is survived by her nieces, nephews, and cousins, including, Rogelio Susaya and his wife Arlinda, Carlos Susaya and his wife Hilda, Julio Susaya, Teofila “Tina” Susaya, Maximina Walczyk and her husband Thomas, Fortunata Barzola and her husband Felix, and Irma Kopplin. The family would like to thank James Fox and all the nurses at the Farmington Valley Visiting Nurses Association for all their help and support.

    To Teofila, Maximina, Julio, Rogelio, Max, Esther, Lucho and the entire family I grew to know so well and felt a part of:
    Your loss I know is big, but the celebration of her life at St. Patrick’s Church was a testament to her big heart, her generosity, her love, and her devotion to her family and others. Anne, I, and our entire family sends our condolences and best wishes to your wonderful family. It was a sad gathering but a joyous one as well, as we were able to share our stories and caring memories of Elvira, a strong, loving and dedicated woman. Thank you again for letting us know of her passing so we could be there to celebrate with you her extraordinary life. Our prayers are with you all.

    I am so sorry to learn of the loss of your beloved Elvira. Your acts of kindness, care, and compassion during her sickness most assuredly granted her soul the comfort and grace to leave her physical body and enter heaven’s gates with a bountiful awareness of God’s endearing love through His children here on earth. May her eternal presence shine blessings on all who have known her and her family.

    In sympathy,
