On Feb. 9, 2012, Chris Bellino lost her courageous three-year battle with lung cancer.
Bellino was born on July 3, 1955 in Yunuena, New York, to Lucille and Vic Serrichio. She is survived by her brother Victor and his wife Karen, and their children Victoria and Nick. She is also survived by her favorite aunt, Joanna Pragana and her precious yorkie, Dolce.
Bellino lived in and around Laguna Beach for the better part of 25 years, where she owned and operated several small businesses. She eventually found her way to Capistrano Volkswagen, rising from sales to general manager to business partner of the dealership. Bellino had an extraordinary way about her; a love of life that brought her much joy and too many friends to list. Her smile and sense of humor will live forever as we keep her memory alive.
Donations can be made in her honor to: LUNGevity Foundation at LUNGevirty.org then go to Chris Bellino.
