Celia Lamas

February 14, 1935 — August 10, 2023

Ingleside

 

Celia Tello Lamas nació el 14 de febrero de 1935 y falleció el 10 de agosto de 2023. Tenía 88 años. Nació en Rayón, San Luis Potosí, México, hija de Fernando Tello y María Aguilar. Tenía un segundo cumpleaños porque tenía una personalidad tan grandiosa que quería hacer esto dos veces más el 14 de noviembre de 1935. Llegó a los Estados Unidos y trabajó en un restaurante en el valle donde conoció a Carlos Lamas, un joven y guapo soltero y dijo que sus ojos color avellana la hipnotizaron. En cuanto a toda la historia, no estoy seguro, pero él dice que la invitó al cine, y ella nunca salió del auto. Fue testigo de Jehová y parte de la congregación española Aransas Pass desde 1968. Ella tenía 12 hijos, ¿mencioné que todos eran hermosos? Durante 2020 y 2021, fallecieron 3 de sus hijos con enfermedades terminales. Ella sobrevivió a su fallecimiento y siendo la persona fuerte que era, continuó su batalla contra el Parkinson hasta su fallecimiento. Ella era conocida por muchos como Mamita, una mujer de negocios hecha a sí misma con solo 3 años de escolaridad. Tenía un café conocido como Mingo's Drive-In, y luego, debido a su amor por la industria alimentaria, trabajó con sus hijos en el querido Twin Pizza durante muchos años. Hizo muchos amigos para toda la vida durante esa parte de su vida. Su Parkison nunca le impidió cantar y para aquellos de ustedes que la conocieron, ¡siempre estaba cantando! Le encantaba especialmente cantar con Mariachis, no tenías que pedirle que cantara porque lo iba a hacer sin importar qué.

 

Le preceden en la muerte su hermano Abel Tello y sus tres hijos, Luis (Belinda), Carlos (Pat) y Abel (Esther). Le sobreviven su amado esposo, Carlos Sandoval Lamas, sus hijos, Janie Marroquín (Armando), Fina Lamas, Amelia Segovia (Domingo), Fred Lamas, David Lamas (Luwanah), Rey Lamas (María), Chris Lamas (Cindi), Celia Christina Herrera (Arte), Rubén Lamas y numerosos nietos y bisnietos.

 

El velorio será el domingo 13 de agosto de 2023, de 2 PM a 8 PM y el servicio será el 14 de agosto de 2023 a las 11 AM en Charlie Marshall Funeral Home en Aransas Pass. El entierro seguirá en el cementerio de San Ignacio en Kenney Ln en Ingleside. Portadores del féretro, Chris Lamas, Carlos Trevino, Adam Herrera, Christopher Lamas, Tristan Torres, Andre Lamas, Adrian Lamas y Mason Trevino.

Celia Tello Lamas was born February 14th, 1935, and passed away August 10th, 2023. She was 88 years old. She was born in Rayon, San Luis Potosi, Mexico to Fernando Tello and Maria Aguilar. She had a second birthday because she had such a grand personality that she wanted to do this twice again on November 14th, 1935. She came to the states and worked at a restaurant in the valley where she met Carlos Lamas, a young handsome bachelor and said his hazel eyes mesmerized her. As for the whole story, I'm not sure, but he says he invited her to the movies, and she never got out of the car. She was a Jehovah’s Witness and part of the Aransas Pass Spanish congregation since 1968. She had 12 children, did I mention they were all beautiful. During 2020 and 2021, 3 of her sons with terminal illnesses passed away. She survived their passing and being the strong person that she was, she continued her battle against Parkinson's until her passing. She was known to many as Mamita, a self-made businesswoman with only 3 years of schooling. She had a cafe known as Mingo’s Drive-In, and then later because of her love for the food industry, she worked with her boys at the beloved Twin Pizza for many years. She made many lifelong friends during that part of her life. Her Parkison’s never stopped her from singing and for those of you who knew her, she was always singing! She especially loved singing with Mariachis, you didn't have to ask her to sing because she was going to do it no matter what.

 

She is preceded in death by her brother Abel Tello and her three sons, Luis (Belinda), Carlos(Pat) and Abel(Esther). She is survived by her loving husband, Carlos Sandoval Lamas, her children, Janie Marroquin(Armando), Fina Lamas, Amelia Segovia(Domingo), Fred Lamas, David Lamas(Luwanah), Rey Lamas(Maria), Chris Lamas(Cindi), Celia Christina Herrera(Art), Ruben Lamas and numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.
