iconRUELAS-GOMEZ, ELISA del ROSARIO Elisa del Rosario Ruelas-Gomez, 93, a longtime resident in San Diego County, passed away peacefully on November 26, 2012, of natural causes. She is survived by her daughters, grandchildren and great-grand-children. A public memorial service will be held on December 6, 2012, 10:00 a.m. at Mount Miguel Covenant Village, Village's Bailey Center, 325 Kempton Street Spring Valley, CA 91977-5810. Please do not send flowers and instead make a donation to Mount Miguel Covenant Village in Memorial or Honor Gift: (https://app.etapestry.com/hosted/ CovenantRetirementCommunitie/OnlineDonation.html). Elisa was endearingly known as "Nina" to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was a mother, great-grand-mother and spiritual mentor to all of us. Her strong Catholic faith and belief in God made her our Guardian Angel here on earth. In our eyes Heaven has gained an Angel, and we will continue to miss her dearly as we have lost our family matriarch. She endeared herself to all.
