Criselda B. Aguirre

February 13, 1945 — April 21, 2023

Criselda B. Aguirre, 78, passed away peacefully April 21, 2023. She was born to the late Olivia Leal on February 13, 1945 in Harlingen, Texas.

She and her late husband, Robert, had no children. However, Criselda loved children and that is what inspired her to become a paraprofessional at Bowie Elementary School in Harlingen. She retired from Harlingen CISD after many years of dedicated service.

Criselda also loved pets, she had two dogs which she loved very much - Paloma and Pistolero.

Criselda was closest to her cousin, Lydia Rosales, and her very dear friend, Gracie Davis. She is also survived by several cousins and numerous Aguirre nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Robert L. Aguirre, and her mother, Olivia Leal.

Special thanks to the staff of Valley Baptist Medical Center-Harlingen Cardia ICU and Emergency Department personnel for their kindness and care of Criselda.
