Emma Domitila Chavez Ellwsorth

September 26, 1948 ~ June 4, 2020

Emma was born in Piedras Negras Couhuila, Mexico to Raul Hernadez and Concepcion Chancy. Her grandmother Francisca (Panchita) Chavez raised Emma when she was a baby. When Emma was in the 8th grade she dropped out of school to help her mother and stepfather John L Chancy raise her younger siblings and help work in the family bar.

In 1960 between the ages of 12 and 13 years old Emma migrated to Eagle Pass Texas, with her sibling and parents. In 1969 Emma moved to Utah while pregnant with her first child. She then gave birth, in 1970 to the oldest child, Richard Anthony Garcia.

Emma was one of many children, she was raised with 3 sisters, Alma Ramirez, Elsa Gonzales and Betty Delgado. Emma also had 3 brothers, Juanito Chancy, Jimmy Chancy and Rafael Chancy.

Emma is survived by her significant other Bradley Fisher and her children Richard Anthony Garcia, Robert Alexander Garcia, Shantell Lynn Ellsworth, and Philip Scott Ellsworth. Emma had many grandchildren, who were the loves of her life. She allways wanted to have them come over and spend time with her, show them how much she loved them and watch them grow. The surviving grandchildren are, Sydian Garcia, Rowan Curtis, Riley Garcia, Ellie Garcia, Trey Garcia, Zaidyn Sorenson, Emma Rook, and soon to be Callum Lynn Ellsworth.

Emma was a genuine and upfront person. She loved to sing karaoke for friends and family. Emma was a very giving person, although she did not have much, she had no problem giving what little she had.

Because of all the lessons Emma Ellsworth has shared, she was able to instill and shape the lives of anyone she encountered. Love, Kindness, Selflessness, Giving and Compassion is the few of many things that we will remember about her. Until we meet again may you rest in peace, along side your late family and friends.

My aunt Emma had a gift and that gift was anyone she touched and talk to always felt better and filled with joy. Aunt Emma loved to go out of her way to help others and it just came naturally, yes she would even give you the shirts of her back (sort of speech) and care for you and yet she was HAPPY even if she didn't have an extra for herself. Emma loved to sing 🎵and brought joy to our ears. . Love you allways auntie. Love Your neice "Brenda Chavez L.

"It is not length of life, but depth of life." I can’t even start to think how you are feeling right now. My deepest condolences to you guys. Tia was an amazing person and it’s time like these that when we hear her name we shouldn’t feel sad, instead we should feel happy that she lived an amazing life and left many wonderful memories for us to rejoice..
