Nació de Doroteo y Paulina Lozano el 18 de agosto de 1942 en Acuña, Coahuila, México. María Elena era una católica devota, aceptando a Cristo a una edad temprana. Ella siempre mantuvo a su familia y sus necesidades. A menudo se la consideraba la columna vertebral de la familia, asegurándose de que nadie se quedara fuera o se quedara atrás. Ella mostró a sus hijos y a su esposo que aman sin condiciones, que están presentes en todas las circunstancias. Se la extrañará por sus comidas caseras, su amor por vestirse sin importar la ocasión y su dedicación a todos aquellos que se cruzaron en su camino. María Elena disfrutaba pasar tiempo con su familia, que amaba mucho. Será muy extrañada por todos los que tuvieron la oportunidad de conocerla.
