Christina Benitez


Christina “Nina” Benitez joined our Heavenly Father in the Kingdom of Heaven on August 25, 2023. Despite her long battle with medical issues, her unrelenting faith and courage guided her through every trial and inspired others to do so in kind.

Nina was born on April 13, 1966, to Crispin and Rosa Benitez.  She is remembered by her siblings and in-laws Mireya, Maria, Jose, Rosalba, Daniel, Julie, and Gerardo as well as her beloved nieces and nephews, Alyssa, Nikolaus, Julian, Desarey, Isabel, Joselyn, Jesse, Lizette,Xochitl, Jackie, and Carolina.

Nina’s faith knew no bounds, she loved nothing more than to spread the word of God to others. She had an uncanny ability to find true joy and happiness in her daily activities, infecting those around her with glee. Her contagious smile and laughter never ceased to light up a room and make a positive impact on those around her. The way she smiled with her bold lipstick and batted those must have eyelashes is something that will be missed dearly. But above all, the way she cared for others with her whole heart and made them feel loved, will be remembered by anyone that had the honor of knowing her, a wake will be held at
