Elvira was married to her teenage sweetheart Jose Luis Arce, Sr. for over 56 years and had four children. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and sister.

1994 the year I met Elvira Arce. My first impression, "what a pretty lady with such a big friendly smile." 26years later-still that pretty lady with the beautiful smile, Lisa's#1 fan, unlimited unboundless love for family, devoted hardworking co-worker/friend, best bingo player on the planet. So many happy memories I will cherish always. See you later Vee, love you lots ❤️, Mari
