Elvira Luz Maldonado
On Wednesday, November 17, 2021, the love of our lives Elvira Luz Maldonado, wife, daughter, sister, mother, coach, aunt, friend, and most beloved Nana passed away at the age of 63 with her daughters by her side. She was preceded in death by her grandparents, in-laws, and cherished father Alfredo “Chico” Rodriguez. She is survived by her husband Edmundo “Binky” Maldonado, daughters, Leslie Davis, Erica Guerrero (Anthony), and grandchildren Anthony Guerrero Jr., Nicolas Eric Guerrero, and Maya Nicole Porter. Also left to cherish her memory is her mother, Alicia Rodriguez, and younger siblings, Esmeralda RDGZ Lopez (Ricardo), Alfredo Rodriguez Jr. (Sharon), Juan Francisco Rodriguez (Veronica), and Jesus “Chuche” Rodriguez (Ivette), numerous nieces and nephews. From the moment she was born, December 11, 1957, San Diego would always be her beloved home. She was imbued with humility and committed countless hours to community service with an unwavering work ethic. She graduated from San Diego High School in 1976 where her passion to teach would grow and lead her to become an educator and coach to her Mighty Fighting Vaqueros.
Elvira loved to create relationships. Her laughter and smile was infectious and she loved to cook and watch her soap operas, and Spanish Telenovelas. As a sport’s enthusiast, she loved to attend every game and cheered with the utmost pride. After the birth of her grandchildren, her life would forever change, spending every moment possible with those who now held her heart. Elvira’s compassion and love for her family and others never faltered. Although her physical presence has been taken from Earth, it did not take Elvira’s beautiful spirit which will forever live in the hearts of all those who know and love her.
Elvira’s family would like to express their deepest gratitude and appreciation to all those who enriched her life.
A Rosary will be recited on Tuesday, November 23, 2021, at 2:00 p.m. at St. Francis de Paula Catholic Church with a Funeral Mass to follow. All services will conclude at the church. Mauro P. Garcia Funeral Homes, Inc., entrusted with the arrangements.

My condolences for the loss of our beloved Elvira Davis Maldonado. She was known as “Coach” to everyone. I had the privilege of working beside her as a colleague and then as her boss. Coach was the best. She was so involved and would go out of her way in her profession as an educator. I have many great memories with Coach, especially when it came to the annual fall carnival. She made sure everything was organized and ready for the students. In class, she always made it fun for the students. I remember walking in her gym and seeing her dancing with the students. She was always smiling and her laugh was so contagious. I could still hear it when I picture her in my mind. Coach will never be forgotten and I am so glad that we crossed paths. May she rest in peace always.
