Elizabeth Rodriguez, 85, August 23, 2019, born in Chicago's China-town
neighborhood, moved to Taylor Street, Humbolt Park, Puerto Rico and then
settled down calling the Southwest side of Chicago, Garfield Ridge
neighborhood her home. Beloved wife of the late Victor M. Rodriguez;
devoted mother of mother of Manuel (Linda) Santiago, late Larry (Freda)

parents, Frank and Susan Rogers Santiago. Elizabeth was the eldest of 16
brothers and sisters, and a dear aunt to many nieces and nephews.

Elizabeth was a devout Catholic who spent time each daily praying the
rosary. She was a "character" with a stern but loving hand. Her
grandchildren and great-grandchildren could do no wrong in her eyes.
Elizabeth was known to many as the "BINGO QUEEN". She enjoyed dancing,
cooking and eating with her family and friends. Her presence will be missed
by many.
