Manuela Celina Filer passed away on April 20, 2023, after a brief illness. She was 69 years old. Born in Durango, Mexico, December 5, 1953, she later came to the United States where she became a United States citizen. Celina, as many knew her, spent most of her years in Banning, California where she raised her children. Celina's greatest love was her family. And all of her children were proud to call her mom.
Celina loved to help people. She spent 30 years as a Certified Nurse's Assistant and worked locally in nursing facilities where she cared for others. When Celina retired, she spent most of her time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren who she adored. Celina loved to cook, and spent many hours teaching her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren some of her delicious recipes.
Celina is survived by her three children, Minerva Castorena (David Perez Redlands, CA), Ruben Ramirez Sr. (Maria Ramirez Beaumont, CA) and Ismael Ramirez (Banning, CA) five grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren, who she raised with such love and devotion. She is predeceased by her son, Edgar Castorena and two sisters. She leaves behind her older sister, younger brother, nephews, and nieces. Celina will be buried at Riverside National Cemetery alongside her late husband, Ramon Filer. Burial services will be private for immediate family members only, but the family would like to invite anyone who loved her to a Celebration of Life on Saturday, May 6th, 2023, at the home of her son, Ruben.
