She loved spending time with her grandsons, Marciano and Kyle as they would spend many summers at the beach. Her activities were not limited; Cristina enjoyed bowling with her sister Rita in the PV Bowling League, venturing off to the casinos to play the slots or off to the track to catch a few races and you would always see her every year making tamales at Christmas. However, she could always be found in front of the TV when it came to the channel 7 soaps but most of all she just "Loved the Simple Life".
