Elena was born and raised in Utuado, Puerto Rico. She later moved to Chicago where
she lived with her loving daughter Flor. Elena was a hard-working farmer and a very
creative person who enjoyed music, singing, storytelling, embroidery, making flowers
and other forms of art. But overall she will be fondly remembered for being a loving,
sweet, caring matriarch.
