Celia was born November 19, 1945, in Mathis, Texas to Marcos Saenz and Manuela Bentancort Saenz. At a young age, Celia moved to Hollis, Oklahoma. In her teenage years, she and her siblings worked in the cotton fields. In the summer they would â€œchop cottonâ€ and in the fall they would pick cotton. By working in the fields she learned an incredible work ethic and also a great appreciation of family these two principles would guide her entire life.
Celia worked in the restaurant industry as a waitress and cook, but she was always known by her customers for her friendly smile and her glowing personality. In 2015, Celia retired from Fox Clinic in Childress, Texas after ten years of housekeeping.
She had a love of music and dancing, liked to sing along to the songs she listened to and of course dancing to the music! Celia had a green thumb and could grow any plant or flower she was given, but the thing she enjoyed the most was spending time with her family, her children and grandchildren were the most important thing to her, she cherished every moment with them.
Celia was a long-time Catholic and raised her children in the Catholic faith. She was a woman close to God and of great faith.
