My prayers to the family. I first met Mrs Centenio at Sacred Heart as Gina and I were in the same class. She was so kind and always made you feel so special. Then when I got my first nursing job it was in pediatrics at UTMB and there she was she helped alleviate my nervousness. She always looked out for me. She will always hold a special place in my heart. Rest well now sweet Erin and may God comfort your family

Although I personally did not know Erin, her sister Mary Christine was a very devoted Dominican & I am sure they were very much alike. Reading the obituary I can see the love & caring this family has. From myself & the Dominican Alumnae, our prayers are being sent up for the Higgins family.

Our prayers and deepest condolences go out to the all the children and grandchildren of Mrs. Centenio. One of my fondest memories of your Mom was her working the concession stand at the baseball field at Lindale Park. Those were some fun times and those baseball games were a real highlight of the neighborhood in the late 60's and early 70's. Robert and Sally Mihovil

Mary Centenio was one of the most caring, fun dedicated women I have ever met. I met her when her children were at O'Connell High School. She was a gift to all who knew her. She lives on in the lives of her children to whom she passed on her beliefs and sense of concern for others.

While I did not know Mrs. Elizabeth Centenio personally, I have had the pleasure of knowing her daughter Sheila Ott (and her wonderful family). I can only imagine how wonderful of a woman she was to have raised such a caring and amazing daughter. The beautiful words of her obituary paint a clear picture of a life well lived and of a family full of love and faith. My sincere condolences to the family and may God grant you all peace and comfort at this time. May the wonderful memories you have sustain you and continue to warm your hearts. Many Blessings!

Your mom's obituary about the prayer cards, medals and rosary could of been my moms also, you mom was truly a kind lady, my mom thought the world of her and I am sure the two of them are saying the rosary in heaven for us now. Peace be with you all.
