Cristina Llorente, 89, of Vero Beach, passed away on March 20, 2021.
She was born in the small town of Tulua, Colombia to Guillermina Garcia and Enrique Penaloza. She had many brothers and sisters and grew up in a large family. She met her husband, Raul Llorente, in Colombia and she had three sons, Carlos, Caesar and Nestor.
They moved to Jamaica Queens, New York in the 60s. She was a devoted mother and a seamstress. She lived in Houston, Texas when her son Carlos settled down, and then to Vero Beach, Florida when her son Nestor went to flight school.
She was a traditional Spanish grandmother to her grandchildren, where there was always a delicious meal for them in the pink house she loved so much. She was a devout arborist and had a particular affinity for orchids.
She was very involved in the church. She also loved to get together with her friends, spending time dressing up, and chatting about family. If there was a party, you would usually find Cristina on the dance floor. She always had a fiery spirit which undoubtedly carried her through her incredible life.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Raul Llorente, sons, Caesar and Nestor Llorente, and brothers and sisters.
She is survived by her son, Carlos Llorente (Esperanza), her brother Armando, her grandchildren, Erik (Emily), Vivian (Colin), Christina (Brent), Andres, Brittany (Andrew) and Bryce, her great grandchildren, Teagan, Ronan, Kellan, Grayson, and Riddik, and daughter-in-law, Teresa.

The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.
Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
