Celerina R. Hernandez
February 3, 1961 – March 14, 2020
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, Celerina (Cele) Hernández.
Our beautiful mother passed away on March 14, 2020 surrounded by her family. She was born on February 3, 1961 to Amos and Josefa Rodriguez.
She is preceded in death by her father, Amos Rodriguez and brother, Miguel Rodriguez.
She married the love of her life, Eladio Hernández, on February 14, 1986. Together they had 5 children. She was a loving and caring mother, grandmother, mother-in-law, sister, aunt, and friend.
You could hear her a mile away with her loud, infectious laugh. Her grandchildren were her pride and joy. She loved them with all her heart and loved seeing them running and playing in her home. She was an amazing cook and even better tamale maker. She loved spending time with her family and having late night talks with her husband, our dad.
She is survived by her loving husband Eladio Hernandez and 5 children: Erica (Michael) Rivera, Eladio (Miranda) Hernandez, Angelica Hernandez, Esmeralda Hernández, and Jose Hernandez.
She is also survived by 14 loving grandchildren: Michael Jr, Aiden, Tres, Jayce, Jazmyn, Giselle, RJ, Aubrey, Natalie, Joe Anthony, Vivian, Adrian, Zach, and Jazzlyn.
The family wishes to thank all who came to visit her in the last couple of weeks of her life. Nothing brought her great joy than having family visit.
We affectionately called her gatita but
God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be so he put his arms around you and whispered "Come to me." With tearful eyes we watched you as you slowly slipped away and though we loved you dearly we couldn't make you stay. Your golden heart stopped beating your tired hands put to rest God broke our hearts to prove to us he only takes the best.
FOREVER OUR PRINCESA
