Christina was a loving and devoted wife to Alfonso.

She had a talent for sewing, baking, and cooking that her family enjoyed. She had the gift of gab and could converse with just about anyone. Her grandchildren enjoyed learning her talents and have the best memories from spending summers with her and Alfonso.
