Lenora Elizondo of Port Arthur passed away on Sunday, November 1, 2020 at Harbor Hospice House in Beaumont.
She was born in Doucette, Texas on July 15th to her parents, Jesus Lopez and Delores Guerrero Lopez.
Lenora spent most of her life living in Beaumont.
She moved to Port Arthur after she married her husband of 54 years, Richard Elizondo Sr. Lenora was a devoted wife and mother.
She was always happiest when she was spending time with family and friends.
The children of the family were her pride and joy.
She cherished memories of her early years-trips with her son, traveling, watching her husband play softball and gathering with their many friends.
She was a wonderful example of how we should all live – loving, caring for others, giving and never expecting anything in return.
She will be greatly missed.
