Cipriana was a nature lover; she created her own fish pond and would spend time gardening and enjoying her goldfish. Cipriana loved to plant flowers that would attract butterflies and hummingbirds and took the time to sit and enjoy her oasis. When not enjoying the sanctuary of the outdoors she would be known to enjoy her time with family drinking her cafecito and eating her pan dulce or chocolates while catching up with all of the family that would visit.
Visitation will begin 4pm on Monday, January 14, 2019 followed by the Rosary at 7pm, both at Allen Mortuary. Mass will be held 10am on Tuesday, January 15, 2019 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church with interment to follow at Turlock Memorial Park.
