Gloria Benitez Obituary

Gloria T. Benitez was born in Quito, Ecuador, on October 15, 1940, and passed away on December 31, 2023—Fifty-eight years to the day from when she first came to the US to pursue her American Dream. Gloria was a caring wife of 63 years to her husband Luis, a dedicated mother to her children Margarita, Luis, Jennie, and Estiv, and an over-top-fun-loving-grandmother to her 5 grandchildren. Gloria dedicated her life to raising children by becoming a nanny for 40+ years to only 4 families, retiring to continue caring for the birth of her first grandchild in 2008. Her joy in life was watching her "other" kids grow into young adults as they moved forward. Gloria had a creative flair, as seen in her hand-made embroidered blankets for her 5 grandchildren. She loved music, dancing, and celebrating life with a family to the fullest at each milestone or just cleaning the house. Gloria will forever be missed but never forgotten by her family and friends.

Gloria's celebration of life will begin with a viewing on Thursday, January 4, 2024, from 4 - 8 pm at Van Emburgh-Sneider-Pernice Funeral Home, 109 Darlington Avenue, Ramsey, NJ 07446. On Friday, January 5, 2024, A church service will occur at Guardian Angel Church, 320 Franklin Turnpike, Allendale, NJ 07401 Allendale, NJ.
