Elvira Teresa Soto Contreras

June 18, 1948 — August 3, 2021

Elvira Teresa Soto Contreras, 73, a resident of Amelia, passed away Tuesday, August 3, 2021 at Chabert Medical Center in Houma, surrounded by her family.

Elvira was born June 18, 1948, in Santiago, Chile, the daughter of Hector Soto and Juana Grimaldo Soto.

Elvira moved to the United States from Chile many years ago; she came with little to her name and knowing no English, yet, she learned the language and made a great life for herself. Elvira sacrificed everything for her family and always made them her number one priority. Her children were her best friends, and her grandchildren were her world. Elvira was the backbone to her family; she always knew what to say in times of trouble, and Elvira’s family could always look to her for great advice, knowing she would never hold her tongue. She could fix any problem that was thrown her way, and handle it with grace and strength. Elvira had a great sense of humor, and her laugh and smile will be missed dearly.

She will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her husband, Luis Alberto Contreras Sr. of Amelia; two sons, Luis Contreras Jr. and wife Lisa of Amelia, Juan Contreras and wife Robin of Berwick; one daughter, Katherine Contreras of Morgan City; one brother, Nivaldo Soto  Grimaldo of Chile; two sisters, Juana Soto Bijeaux and husband Raymond of Ricohoc, Patricia Soto Pacheco and husband Jorge of New Jersey; 8 grandchildren, Devin Contreras, Raven Contreras, Alexia Morgan, (not only a granddaughter, but like a daughter to Elvira, as well as her caregiver,) Rico Contreras, Cameron Contreras, Rio Contreras, Kamila Giroir, and Katalaya Giroir; numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Elvira was preceded in death by her parents, Hector and Juana Soto; three siblings, Hector Soto, Priscilla Soto Grimaldo, and Santiago Soto Grimaldo.
