WATERBURY- Cristina Quinonez, age 80, of Waterbury, passed away on Wednesday, October 16, 2019 at St. Mary’s Hospital. She was the daughter of the late Felix Quinonez and Luisa Fragoso.

She attended La Universidad de Puerto Rico where she received her degree in Social Work. Cristina enjoyed reading, travel and adventure, and sewing skirts for her granddaughter and pillow cases for everyone. She especially loved gardening. Mami truly loved nature and found beauty everywhere.
She will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege to know and love her. Tula will miss her 1:00 pm naps with you.

Cristina leaves behind her children, Juan M. Rivera of P.R., Naida I. Mendez of P.R., Nitza J. Mendez of P.R., Brenda E. Mendez of CT, Wilfred Rodriguez of CT, Becky Rodriquez and her husband Manny of CT, and Jerry A. Rodriguez of P.R. She also leaves her 10 grandchildren as well as several great grandchildren.

Cristina’s family would like to give a special thanks to Celerme Adames- Castro, for her care and gentleness.

Kindness is a gift everyone can afford to give. “You cannot do kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.”

A celebration of Cristina’s life, along with a tree planting ceremony, will be held in El Yunque Rainforest Rio Grande, Puerto Rico on Sunday, January 20, 2020.

En los últimos 24 años de mí vida, mientras residía en el Estado de Connecticut, realicé varios trabajos, pero el que más me apasionaba era C N A!, presté mis servicios en unas cuantas agencias, tales como Quality Home Care LLC!!, Ahí presté mis servicios a muchos pacientes! Entre ellos de lenguaje inglés y hispanos!, entre los hispanos, conocí a Cristina: mujer de una actitud positiva hacia la vida, amigable, respetuosa, le gustaba compartir el pan diario, entre sus pasiones más destacadas unas de ellas fue la lectura; se olvidaba de comer por estar leyendo; era chistoso, hasta los doctores solían reír con sus ocurrencias!! Cada día aprendía algo diferente, porque con cada ocurrencias; era una brillantez inocente, única !! Pero esa luz se apagó el 16 de octubre del año en curso, en horas de la tarde; dejando inmensamente triste a todos los que tuvimos con ella!!!!
Quiero dar las gracias; a todos sus hijos porq de una forma u otra, aportaron un granito de arena durante mis servicios con la paciente, para que la batalla fuera menos dura! Porque en mí opinión, hay que tener mucho compasión para realizar trabajar con pacientes con alguna laguna de demencia! Requieren bastante paciencia!!
Quiero agradecer inmensamente a Glenda (Becky), y Manny Rodríguez, muchas gracias por tanto apoyo incondicional que tuvieron conmigo!!
Dios ruego tenga a CRISTINA QUIÑONEZ en ese lugar bien especial!! Dios te pido fortaleza para todos sus hijos y familiares!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
