The Daughter of the Basque businessman, who immigrated to Mexico, Francisco Arocena Muñuzuri and of Zenaida Arocena Avila, daughter of the Basque businessman Rafael Arocena, settled in Mexico during the last third of the 19th century. Elvira's parents were cousins. In 1911, her mother Zenaida passed away and in 1918, his father did. A year later, his grandfather passed away too. Then, Elvira and her sister Rafaela went on to live with his uncle Teodoro Arocena, who brought them to Spain, England and France to study.

In Spain, she married the businessman and soccer player Francisco "Pacho" Belausteguigoitia Landaluce, and they had five children: Maite, Iker, Bibiñe, Ibone and Osane. In 1932, all the family moved to Mexico to be in charge of the businesses of the Arocena family.
