A devout Catholic, Cecilia was born on November 24, 1935, in Kosciusko, Texas to Santos R. Moreno and Rebeca H. Moreno. Cecilia, or C.C. as friends and family fondly knew her by, worked and raised her children in Texas as a diligent wife, mother, and servant of God. She lived for a long period of time in her home of Wilson, Texas where she was an essential member of her Saint Paul Church community. To her family, she was a vibrant smile, a warm embrace, and a one-of-a-kind storyteller, even in her later years. Her life was one full of prayer, love, and laughter. She passed on from this world peacefully in her sleep after celebrating another year of life until The Lord called her home. May God rest her soul. She was one of nine beautiful sisters who grew up mostly in Lampasas, Texas. She is preceded in death by her late husband, Roy Rivera as does, Antonio Chapa; sister, Mary Rendon, and brother, Johnny Moreno. Survivors include her children, Danny Chapa, Alfonzo Chapa, Victoria Emmett; sisters, Mary Ann Aldrich, Rosie Perez, Becky Gonzales, Helen Infante, Judy Ramos, Lily Gomez, Carol Nunez as well as their spouses, children, and a host of cousins. Also, surviving C.C. are her grandchildren, Melanie, Eric, Julian, Nicole Chapa, Sasha Centeno, and Si Mon' Cecilia Emmett.
