Criselda was born in Roma “Los Saenz”, Texas on June 12, 1950.  She graduated from Roma High School and continued her education at the University of Texas Pan American in Edinburg, Texas and received a Bachelor Degree. 

Criselda was employed with the Brownsville Independent School District for 40 years as a teacher.  Most of her career was spent at Egly Elementary.  She married her college sweet-heart, Doroteo “Dee” Trevino on December 22, 1973.  They were married for 46 years and raised three children together.  She was a devoted Christian woman, mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt who always instilled her Christian values with loved ones.  She enjoyed spending time with the family whether it was with her son barbecuing or shopping with her daughters.  Criselda loved to spend time with her siblings in Roma, Texas at their family ranch.  She was a strong woman who was never negative, but always believed in prayer and faith even up to her last days on earth.

She will always be remembered as a kind hearted soul who loved her family.  Her children ask that anyone attending the burial to wear white to honor her life.

“For we know that if the tent that is our earthly home is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal  in the heavens.”  2nd Corinthians 5:1
