Elisa Castillo Ortega

May 23, 1925 ~ April 11, 2021 (age 95)


Our dear mother, Elisa, passed away on Sunday, April 11, 2021, to her eternal rest, to be in the presence of God and her loving husband, Domingo Ramos Ortega.

She also rejoices in being again with her daughter, Ramona Elisa Ortega, who passed away in 1987.

Elisa was born in Monterrey, Mexico, on May 23, 1925, to a large, loving family, in which she was the oldest of 10 children.

She is survived by 3 sons, Domingo (Alicia, 1 child), Mario (Jaqui, 4 children), and Ricardo (Mary, 4 children), and 3 daughters, Socorro (Mario), Cristina, and Magdalena (Salomon, 1 child).

Elisa had many talents, of which sewing was her most outstanding. She made her own wedding dress in 1952, and throughout her life, she made dresses for her four daughters, which was not easy as she also worked full time for many years at J.R. Simplot Co, retiring there in 1987.

Her children are blessed to have had her at their side for such a long life that was filled with a lot of loving and laughter.

Her example as a Christian and as a mother has endeared her to everyone who knew her. Let us thank God for a wonderful life well lived.

A viewing will be held at the Iglesia Damasco, 3320 S. Montana Ave., Caldwell, on Thursday, April 15, from 6:00-8:00pm. Funeral services will be held Friday, April 16, at 11:00am, at the same location. Interment to follow at the Hillcrest Cemetery, Caldwell.
