Elaine Arteaga Died Unexpectedly After Getting A Covid Vaccine

Elaine Arteaga of California was an active and loving mother, as well as a devoted wife. She passed away unexpectedly on May 29, 2021.

Elaine reportedly had a seizure and went into cardiac arrest after having gone to bed. She spent a week in ICU, and did not recover. She leaves behind her husband Tony and two sons, Lucas and Diego.

According to Elaines Facebook default picture dated April 29, 2021, she had received a covid vaccine prior to her death. It is uncertain if she received both doses of the vaccine, and which brand she had.

Yvonne Janelle Fisher made a Facebook post on May 30, 2021 stating that Elaine graduated from Ranier Beach High School in 1988. Elaine was approximately 50 years old.

Elaine’s sister-in-law Maria Arteaga Colen also made a heartfelt post regarding the unexpected loss. In the post Maria also writes: “our family gatherings and holidays will never be the same without you.”

A gofundme was created on behalf of Elaine’s two sons, and states:

“Thousands of Sacramento families probably have no idea of the role Elaine played in improving their lives. She spent her career at Child Action Inc., eventually becoming a senior executive at the private nonprofit that connects working parents with childcare and other support“.

“We know Elaine for her warm personality, her smile, her quirks and her ability to laugh at herself. She woke up thinking of others, was often the one who checked in on family members and friends, offering encouragement and keeping everyone connected. Outside of work, she played coed adult-league soccer for years, racking up numerous championships“.

Elaine was very involved in her community and her presence will undoubtedly be missed. Our thoughts are with her friends and family during this difficult time.
