Christina "Chris" Carnero
Christina Carnero, loving and devoted wife of LTC Manuel "Manny" Carnero, Jr., (Retired), was born in County Sligo, Ireland, on the 18th of December 1934. She passed away in Houston, peacefully in her sleep, at the home of her daughter, Linda Hughes, on Friday, the 6th of December 2021. She was 86 years of age.
Christina was loved and cherished by her family and friends. She was an elegant lady and known as a great conversationalist. She was a devoted military wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, and aunt. Her passion was her family.
Christina met the love of her life, Manny, on a blind date when Manny was serving in the U.S. Marines, and they were married a few years later on the 30th of July 1960, in St. Augustine Church in Troy, and were married for over 61 years. They had two daughters, Mary and Linda and after Manny finished his time in the Marines he joined the U.S. Army as an officer which continued Christina's long career as a military wife.
Upon Manny's retirement Christina and Manny moved to Houston where she was active in several woman's groups supporting the Houston Area Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America, the Korean War Veterans Association and the Chosin Few. As a cancer survivor Christina was also a very active member of the Ostomy Association of Houston. Christina and Manny were parishioners at St. Cecilia Catholic Church for over 40 years where, in 2010, they renewed their vows for their 50th anniversary.
As her family grew to include sons-in-law and grandchildren, Christina traveled extensively to be with them to celebrate holidays, birthdays, sacraments, graduations, and just to visit. She was an important and present part of her grandchildren's lives as they grew up and will always be with the family.
Christina was preceded in death by her two infant sons, Manuel Carnero and Michael Carnero, and her six siblings. She is survived by her loving husband, LTC Manuel Carnero, Jr. (Retired); her daughters, Mary Christina Stahl and her husband Peter Michael Stahl, and Linda Antoinette Hughes and her husband Charles Samuel Hughes; her eight grandchildren, Anthony Stahl, Christopher Stahl, Melissa Stahl, Dustin Stahl, Michael Hughes, Christina Hughes, Catherine Hatley, Bridgette Hughes; and her great-grandchild Alice Hughes and wife of Michael Hughes, Julie Hughes.
Friends are cordially invited to a visitation with the family from five o'clock in the afternoon until seven o'clock in the evening on Wednesday, the 15th of December, in the Jasek Chapel and Grand Foyer of Geo. H. Lewis & Sons, 1010 Bering Drive in Houston, where a recitation of the Holy Rosary is to commence at seven o'clock in the Jasek Chapel.
The Mass of Christian Burial is to be offered at half-past ten o'clock in the morning on Thursday, the 16th of December, at St. Cecilia Catholic Church, 11720 Joan of Arc Drive in Houston, celebrated by Fr. Francis Macatangay.
At a later to be determined date, she will be interred at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C..
In lieu of customary remembrances, the family requests with gratitude that memorial contributions be directed to the Ostomy Association of Houston, PO Box 25164, Houston, TX, 77265; the American Stroke Association, PO Box 840692, Dallas, TX, 75284-0692; or to St. Cecilia Catholic Church, 11720 Joan of Arc Dr. Houston, TX 77024.
