In loving memory of Christine Hernandez, whom entered this world on July 24, 1935 and departed home on July 7, 2021. As a volunteer for St. Vincent de Paul, she supported the local food pantry for many years to help feed the needy. Devout to her faith and a parishioner to her church, she found the strength and fortitude to reach out to those less fortunate. Despite her age or health, Christine was still determined in her beliefs to help those find food and even gather backpacks for children. Along her long road, her heart has touched many along the way as did her will to help others.
Christine is survived by her brother Juan Marrujo and her sister Carmen Espinoza. She has also brought into this world children Olivia Quintero, Kathy Anderson, Tillie Hernandez-Rubio, Annette Hernandez-Martinez, Armando Hernandez and Alex Hernandez.
