  1. Christina Hayworth passed on February 8, 2021 peacefully with friends in Puerto Rico.

    I'm sure she is riding high on some cloud blowing her whistle loudly as she loved to do!

    You will be dearly missed. thank you for all the good times, memories and holidays we spent together in Puerto Rico.
