ELSBERG – Virginia Elsberg, 95, a resident of Socorro, New Mexico, from 1994 to 2011, passed away on Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2012, in Tyler, Texas. Born in Syracuse, N.Y., Virginia married James Alexander Elsberg on Feb. 3, 1940, in Minneapolis, Minn. She is survived by her children James Elsberg, Sandra Maple, Susan Parrish, Louise Chamberlin, Cynthia Clary, Edward Elsberg, Frances DeKeyser, and William Elsberg. She was preceded in death by her husband James Alexander Elsberg, (Deacon Alick of San Miguel Parish) and their son George Elsberg. She is also survived by 22 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren. Virginia was an active volunteer in Camp Fire Girls, Boy Scouts and PTA at every school her children attended. As a faithful parishioner at Saint Elizabeth Church in Dallas, Virginia was a member of the choir and the church guild. Virginia employed a strict set of house rules to keep the children “in line”; no wonder her children respectfully called her “Sarge.” In their Dallas home during the 1960’s and 70’s, Virginia created an environment that was always open for her children’s friends, especially at dinner time. With nine children to feed, Virginia made sure there was always a little extra for their friends. Needless to say, Virgina loved to cook hearty meals and Alick always had some room left for dessert. Virginia’s favorite word was “discombobulated,” which she often used to describe the inherent confusion derived from keeping track of family activities. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the San Miguel Church restoration fund.
