Haydee’s love of life didn’t come to an end with her death. Haydee Garcia passed away on June 21, 2021 at the age of 86 after a courageous battle with Alzheimer’s, surrounded by family.
The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to Haydee. She loved sunny days and listening to the birds chirping in the morning. She loved walks in the park surrounded by all the animals. She especially loved feeding whatever little animal came her way.
She was constantly in service to her community. She worked with Hudson County rescuing cats. She was a proud foster parent and was going to be the “poster child” for a program being launched to encourage more seniors to become foster parents for their companionship.
She was a skilled piano player and seamstress. Most weekends were spent as a volunteer at Our lady of Fatima church or on senior excursions.
She had an uncanny ability to find happiness in her daily activities. She was extremely active in all of the senior gatherings.
Whether it was dancing, fundraising, exercising or an excursion, she was there with a smile And a zest for life.
Haydee is survived by her three loving children, Rolando, Richard and Jessie; a sister, Maria; a nephew, Armando and her three grandchildren Gabrielle, Bryanna and Aiden
Funeral Mass will be on Tuesday, June 29th, 2021, at 11:30 am at St. Josephs and St. Michaels R.C. Church, Union City, NJ.
