Celina was a loving mother, wife, daughter, aunt, granddaughter, niece, cousin, and friend. Her beautiful children were her reason, her world and her pride and joy. Her beautiful green eyes were her trademark. And when she entered any room, she lit it up with her contagious smile. Celina was the life of the party and loved listening to her favorite music while going on country cruises. She was, as her generation would say “always down for whateva”.
Knowing Celina, you knew that she was goofy, outgoing, outspoken, free spirited and an all-around girl She loved sports, basketball volleyball and softball, her favorite teams were the Dallas Cowboys, LA Lakers, and LA Dodgers. She worked in the food services industry for many years and as a receptionist at Gonzales Welding and Machine. Her passion was being surrounded by her family and friends at get togethers. Celina lived her life to the fullest and then some…we will truly miss her presence on this earth, but we find comfort in knowing that one day we will meet again.
Gone too soon, but never forgotten.
ANYTHING FOR THE CELINAS!!!!!!!
