She moved to Los Angeles in 1966, at the age of 19, to make a better life for herself and her family. In 1967, Maria Elena met her husband in Los Angeles. Together they raised two children and were married 54 years. Maria Elena enjoyed cooking, especially posole and nopales; going to casinos in Las Vegas, and scratcher tickets. She enjoyed the company of her four sisters and five brothers, listening to Tamborazo music, and spending time with her immediate and extended family. Most of all, Maria Elena, affectionately called Amá, enjoyed the company of her five grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
