Elssy Fabela

August 11, 1937 ~ June 14, 2020 (age 82)


Elssy Fabela went to be with her Lord and Savior on June 14th, 2020.

Elssy was born in Bogota, Colombia and was united in marriage to Augie K Fabela Sr. on December 29th, 1962.

Elssy was a great woman of Faith that loved her family. Elssy had a mission to tell everyone she knew and met about her Lord, Jesus Christ. Out of her passion for the Lord, Elssy and Augie founded The Elssy Fabela Foundation in 1996. Elssy believed that any person with a relationship with Jesus Christ and an education, could do anything that their heart desires.

Elssy is survived by Augie, her husband of 57 years, and three children: Sofia (Wayne) Halcomb of Wheaton, Illinois; Claudia Fabela of Winfield, Illinois; Augie (Kathleen) Fabela II of Naples, Florida; five grandchildren; and her sister, Cecilia.
