Elisa was born in Atlanta, GA in 1942 where she lived until age 18 when she married John Carrington and moved to Jacksonville, FL. Elisa worked as a homemaker for the first ten years of the marriage and took a job at the local hospital when the children all became school age. Elisa was a faithful employee of Guardian Hospital over the next 40 years until she retired at the age of 67. She then became a volunteer with Angel Hospice where she enjoyed visiting with hospice patients until her own illness in 2017.
In the years following her illness, she was always described as having a cheerful, loving personality. Her family and friends are numerous and she enjoyed spending time with them
The family expresses appreciation to members of the My Town Church as well as the hospice staff from Angel Hospice who provided wonderful care of Elisa over the past six months.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations for cancer research be made in Elisa's name.
