Mrs. Ellen Jeanette "Elana" Luedke was born on November 22,1948 in El Paso County, TX, a daughter of the late Leroy Olson and Anna Marie Filauro Olson. Elana was a simple woman, dedicated to her Catholic faith, and appreciated every blessing bestowed upon her. Although a frugal woman, she believed in sharing all she had with those in need. Elana loved to have a house full of family and friends and was known to everyone as Grandma. She enjoyed watching tv and reading books, but her true passion was her family. Known as "Nonna" to her grandchildren, they were the light of her life and always kept her going. Elana's memory and giving spirit will be remembered by all those who knew her and lives she touched.
Those left to carry on Elana's memory include her daughter, Danielle Dalgado (Julian "Blackie"); her grandson, Humberto Julian Delgado-Luedke; her grandson, Jonathan Delgado-Luedke; her grandson, Oliver Delgado-Luedke; her brother Raymond Olson; her sister, Nancy Tafoya; her brother, Billy Olson; and her sister, Elizabeth Olson.
In addition to her parents, Elana was preceded in death by her sister Martha Tafoya.
