Celia Bejarano Obituary
Celia "Neni" Bejarano

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother (Nana), great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend on the 24th of December, 2014. Celia, 83, was a resident of San Pedro for over 60 years. She was born on November 2, 1931 in Los Angeles, California (one of twelve children) to Santos and Belen Nunez. Celia was a hard working mother who raised four children on her own in a time when most women were stay-at-home moms. Her last job, from which she ultimately retired, was as an aircraft mechanic with Northrop Grumman. Celia was an active member of Toberman Senior Club, VFW Seniors, Club de la Amistad, St. Peters Catholic Church and the Guadalupanas. She was an adventurer who greatly enjoyed traveling all over the world as well as spending time with her family and friends. Celia will be remembered for her strength, independent spirit, her great sense of humor, and her special green salsa and potato salad (for those lucky enough to have tried them). Celia is preceded in death by her son Carlos Bejarano, parents Santos and Belen Nunez, and grandson Sal Carlos DeLeon. She is survived by her children Joe (Marisa), Victor (Diana), Doreen DeLeon (Tom), her siblings Nicolas Nunez (Yolanda), Octavio Nunez, Celina Martinez (Jose), Raquel Macias, sister in law Isabel Nunez, 11 grandchildren, 13 great grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews. You will always be with us in our hearts. Visitation will be held on Sunday, Jan. 4, 2015, 1 – 7 p.m. followed by a Vigil Service at 7:00 p.m. at McNerney's Mortuary Chapel. A Funeral Mass will be offered on Monday, January 5, 2015, 10:00 a.m. at St. Peter Catholic Church followed by interment at Green Hills Memorial Park. Please sign the guestbook at mcnerneysmortuary.com or dailybreeze.com.
