Delfina was born on September 1, 1923 to Marcos and Rebeca Serna in Hebbronville, Texas. She strongly stressed education to her family, was always giving, hardworking, and enjoyed gardening. Foremost, she encouraged family unity and was the rock that kept her family together. She was simply the best in the kitchen (cocina) and everybody was always welcome for a warm meal.

She was a longtime member of Holy Family Catholic Church and a member of The Catholic Daughters.
