With your eyes without light and your wounded feet, through a path of thorns you always followed ahead. Always believing that soon you would find the valley of your dreams.

On March 28 Elsa suffered an stroke and never recovered. On the fifth day of April God called her name, she responded to His call and departed to His Kingdom. Her light will always shine in our hearts.

Elsa was a very courageous and determined woman with a big heart for giving. She was deprived of her vision but never gave up reaching for her dreams. She was always ready and willing to help others and was active with the local chapter of the National Federation for the Blind.

Born in Costa Rica in 1962 She came to the USA with her family in 1966. She was a proud to be bilingual. Elsa graduated from Hoover High School in 1981. In 1995 she moved to Mississippi where she resided with her husband until 2016 when she returned to Iowa.

Elsa was survived by husband, Anthony Bullard. Parents Ernesto and Susana Barrantes. Sisters Graciela Ellis and Carolina Hillman. Brothers Luis E.and Adrian E. Barrantes. Son, Kristopher Barrantes. Grandchildren Jazmine and Dexter and numerous nieces and nephews.
