Margarita Elizondo, beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, passed away on Aug. 27, 2014, at the age of 89. Her five sons, three daughters, 22 grandchildren and 29 great-grandchildren survive her.
Margarita came to Davis in 1974, preceding the acceptance of four of her children to UC Davis. She was the first woman hired at UCD in her field, where she retired more than 20 years ago. She loved and worked tirelessly for her children. She instilled in them a love of God, drive for education and a work ethic of excellence. Her children are a living testament to her walk in life.
Holy Rosary will be recited at 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 29, at St. James Catholic Church, 1275 B St. in Davis. A memorial Mass to celebrate Margarita’s life is planned for 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 30, at St. James Catholic Church in Davis.
