Born on July 31, 1963, in Littlefield, Texas, Christella Saenz brought joy and love to all who knew her. She was the beloved daughter of Rogelio Saenz and Victoria (Lopez) Saenz. Christella's vibrant spirit embraced life with a passion for music, photography, and connecting with her friends on social media, where she made sure to tag everyone in her Facebook posts.
Christella's heart was filled with immense love for her three daughters: Brooklyn, Torri, and Karla. She cherished every moment spent with them and took pride in talking about their achievements and dreams. As a grandmother to Mayla, she found great joy in the role of "Momo" and created lasting memories for her beloved granddaughter.
Professionally, Christella served as an assistant manager at Shipley's Donuts, where her warm personality and dedication touched the lives of her colleagues and customers alike. Outside of work, she immersed herself in the nostalgic tunes of 80's music, always dancing to the rhythm of her favorite songs.
One of Christella's passions was collecting memorabilia of the iconic Selena, an artist she admired and adored. Her love for vibrant and sparkling accessories earned her the title of "Queen of Bling," a fitting description for someone who shone so brightly in the lives of others.
Among family and friends, Christella playfully referred to herself as the "cool kid," and her creativity was evident in the endearing nicknames she gave her daughters, like "weewa" and "precious monkey."
Social media was another canvas for her artistic expression, as she loved sharing her life's moments with the world through TikTok. Her energy and zest for life left a lasting impact on those who had the pleasure of knowing her online.
On Sunday, July 23, 2023, Christella Saenz left this world, leaving a void that will be deeply felt by all who were fortunate enough to be touched by her radiant spirit. She is preceded in death by her father, Rogelio Saenz. Her memory will forever live on in the hearts of her mother, Victoria (Lopez) Saenz, her daughters, Brooklyn Saenz, Torri Koite, and Karla Andino, her brother, Gabriel Saenz and wife Sally, her sister, Grace Saenz Anderson, and husband Grego, her cherished granddaughter Mayla Molina Saenz, and numerous other family members and friends.
Funeral Services to celebrate Christella's remarkable life will be held Friday, August 4, 11am in the Chapel of Trevino-Smith Funeral Home.
May the memories of Christella's laughter, love, and zest for life bring comfort to those who mourn her passing. She will be dearly missed but always remembered with a smile.
