Elvira was born February 25, 1925, in Youngstown, a daughter of the late Tommaso and Pia (Vecchione) Giura.

Elvira loved her family and friends. Her home was always full of love and laughter and everyone was welcome.

She was a longtime member of St. Matthias Church since 1947.

One of her cherished pastimes was playing cards with her sisters.

Elvira leaves to cherish her memory her daughter, Bernadine (Michael) Jacobs of Toledo; son-in-law, Adam Richards, whom she made her home with and who took loving care of her; her grandchildren, Adam (April) Richards, Craig (Valerie) Richards, Heather (Andy) Barber and Andrew Jacobs; great-grandchildren James Barber and Clare Richards; a sister, Josephine Ciavarella; a niece, Mary (Rick) Cunningham, who helped care for her and many nieces and nephews.

Elvira also rejoins her husband of 61 years, Andrew B. Lucansky, who passed away in 2008; her daughter, Loretta Ann Richards; her sisters, Mary, Sue and Lucy and her brothers, Carmen and Michael.

Special hugs to her caregivers, Adam Richards, Mary Cunningham, Heather and Andy Barber, Adam and April Richards and Craig Richards.
