Grandmother to 34 grandchildren, Aurelia is survived by over 100 great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren. Funny and caring, Aurelia filled countless rooms with laughter and always gave thoughtful birthday cards with individually selected stickers to her loved ones. Resilient and wise, Aurelia was a dedicated Catholic, happily collected rocks, and tended to her beloved garden at her Azusa home where she resided for about eighty years. Custer Christiansen Mortuary in Covina has been entrusted with arrangements.
