Elvira Cenoz - Photo Euskalkultura.comWe were saddened to learn that Elvira Cenoz (née Díaz de Mendibil Osa) longtime Gardnerville resident and owner of the Overland Hotel Basque Restaurant, has passed away.  Elvira was originally from the Saturraran neighborhood of Mutriku, Gipuzkoa. She settled in Gardnerville in 1980 where she worked side by side with her husband, Eusebio, at the Overland.  She had become an institution, and members of the local Mendiko Euskaldun Cluba have many fond memories of time spent with her.  Funeral services will be this Saturday, November 9th beginning with a rosary at 10:30am at St. Gall’s Catholic Church.  Interment will follow at the Gardnerville Cemetery.  Elvira’s obituary is available here. On behalf of everyone at NABO, we extend our sincerest condolences to Elvira’s family, and many, many friends.  Goian Bego.
