April 13, 1955 - July 4, 2021
We regretfully announce the passing of Celia Lopez De Ayala of Visalia on July 4th. Celia was surrounded by her family and passed away peacefully. Our mother, Celia, was one of the strongest, most courageous, bravest women to ever walk this earth and our family was blessed to have her. Though Celia's health was failing for years, few people knew the extent to which she struggled. Her joy for life and indomitable spirit kept her pushing through the pain. Celia is survived by her 7 Children Jose, Sylvia, Gabriel, Dina, Anita, Jose Guadalupe, Rodolfo, 15 Grandkids. Our Mother wasn't the most affectionate parent She had an unique way of showing us her love, although it was tough love she made her children strong and independent as we are today. Our mother had the biggest most contagious smile you would ever see and the personality to match. She was a person of few words but those few words carried the weight of the world. Even though she will no longer be here with us in the physical form she will forever live on in our memories, in our hearts, and in the life lessons she has taught us. We will never be able to fill the void left behind by her. We love you Mom. Lamentamos anunciar el fallecimiento de Celia Lopez De Ayala de Visalia el 4 de julio.
