Celina was a free spirit and had a great sense of humor, she was always joking around.   She had a huge heart; she was kind and loving.  When she loved, she loved with everything she had! She gave the best hugs ever.  She was an amazing cook. Celina was dealt a very challenging life and endured so much but she was so very strong.

Celina loved her children and family so very much! Anyone that became a part of her life, she loved and cherished.  Celina will be dearly missed by all those who knew and loved her.
