Salina Michele “Sissy” Rubio, a beautiful, faithful angel was chosen to be with our heavenly Fa-ther on March 22, 2019. She was born March 31, 1960 in Modesto, CA and was proceeded in death by her father, Salvador Rubio.

She is survived by her son, Coleman Hawkins, and his father, Adam Hawkins, of Portland, Ore-gon; her mother, Nancy Teeples and stepfather, Ralph Teeples, of Copperopolis, CA; her siblings, John Michael Rubio, his wife, Nicolette, of Riverside, CA; Charles M. Rubio, of Monterey, CA; Amy M. Rubio, of San Francisco, CA; Gabrielle “Gabi,” Rubio, of Oakland, CA.

After graduating from Hughson Union High School in 1978, she graduated from City College of San Francisco with a focus of Culinary Arts and Hospitality studies. She was an accomplished Pastry Chef and lectured at the CIA, Culinary Institute of America at Greystone. Her published work featured recipes in Food & Wine, Bon Appetit, San Francisco Chronicle, Modesto Bee and the Portland Tribune and many others.

Salina was a devoted mother to Coleman Hawkins and was so proud of him. She will be greatly missed by her family, many cousins, nieces and nephews and many friends who adored her. She always had a bright, smiling face, and never tired of serving others with her loving hospitality and delicious sweets. Everyone loved spending treasured, fun times with Salina, even though we knew it might be hours later than planned. It was her, “Salina time.”

A Celebration of Life will be held on May 18, 2019 at 1:00 PM at Lakewood Funeral Home, Hughson, CA. followed by a gathering in Modesto to be announced at the Memorial.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks with gratitude for donations to her son, Coleman Hawkins 529 college fund. Contributions should be made to MFS Coleman Hawkins 529 Account, and mailed to John Rubio, 1601 Kingsport Drive, Riverside, CA 92506.
