Elisa K. Molina 1998-2021

TOLEDO — Elisa Kay Molina, 23, passed away Saturday evening, July 24, 2021, in Toledo.

She was born June 3, 1998, in Youngstown, the daughter of David Molina Sr. and Kathy Gromley Smith-May.

Elisa was a beautiful person inside and out. She was sassy and had a heart of gold. You could talk to her about anything without any judgment. She saw the good in every single person she came across. She was a light in the world when there is so much darkness.

Elisa loved spending time with her family and friends. She loved being silly and could have been a comedian. She loved exploring and was the kind of person that would dance in the rain. She loved to cook and help out in the kitchen on holidays. Most of all, she loved her nieces and nephews like they were her own children. They all called her “Aunt Pizza” because when they were little they could not say Elisa. She loved all children. All she ever wanted was to find love and have a family.

Elisa is survived by her loving family, mother, Kathy Smith-May and Walter Fairman of Toledo; father, David (Kathleen) Molina Sr. of Austintown; three sisters, Brittany Gromley of Youngstown, Dominique (Charles “BJ”) Cozad of Youngstown and Kayla Nespeca of Austintown; two brothers, Andrew (Hayley) Molina and David Molina Jr., both of Austintown; maternal grandmother, Kathleen Lally of Mineral Ridge; paternal grandparents, Norberto (Elisa) Molina Sr. of Austintown; great-grandmother, Ermelina Molina of Campbell; uncles, Jayson Gromley, Jeremy Gromley and Norberto “Robbie” (Kenneth Kennedy) Molina Jr.; aunts, Nadina (Guy Sr.) Ague, Diana Ferell and Julia (Jesse) Molina Moore; and several cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.

She was preceded in death by her grandfather, Vincent Gromley; step-grandfather, Michael Lally; nephew, Carter David Clark; and cousins, Guy Ague II and Rick Ague.

Her family and friends will all miss her very much.
