Elena was preceded in death by her parents and siblings Maria del Refugio Arellano, Jorge Mendoza, Fernando Mendoza, Guillermo Mendoza, and Ana Maria Manterola, as well as her long-term friend and companion Josef Braun, and her granddaughters Dominque Granados-Kramer and Denise Braun.

She is survived by two sisters, Consuelo Mendoza of Davie, FL and Carmella Guzman of Mexico City; her children and their spouses Helen and Gerald Braun of Fishkill, Elizabeth Granados and Charles Kramer of Hyde Park, Armin Braun and Dawn Liveli-Braun of Hopewell Junction, and Robert Braun of Tuckahoe; her grandchildren Rachel Braun, Nicole Braun, Nicholas Granados-Kramer, Christopher Granados-Kramer, and Kristy Voyer; and many other beloved friends and family members including Philip Olmos, Tony and Lisa Olmos, Krystal Liveli, Elaine Knapp, Teresa Arellano de Garcia, Myra Sanchez, and Manuel Arellano.
