Obituary of Gloria Margarita Monfiglio
Gloria M. Monfiglio of West Orange NJ, passed away on February 14, 2022, at the age of 83 years old, surrounded by her loving family. She was born on December 25, 1938, in Uruguay and was 1 of 12 children to Gabino Carreras and Julieta Giacoy. In April 1969, she immigrated to New Jersey from Uruguay with her husband, Nelson, where they raised their three children, Claudia, Carlos, and Washington. Gloria spent over 30 years working as a jeweler at Robert Fisher Co. in Newark, and her talent as a jeweler allowed her to create beautiful pieces for her and her family throughout the years. Upon retiring, Gloria spent most of her time with her grandchildren and family, spoiling them with her incredible cooking (especially her empanadas and milanesas), while also taking time to enjoy her gardening.
Gloria is predeceased by her son, Washington, and loving husband, Nelson, of almost 58 years, whom she married on March 6, 1964, in Montevideo, Uruguay. She is survived by their two children – daughter, Claudia, and husband, Manny, and son, Carlos, and wife, Lina –, 6 grandchildren – Emily and Nicholas Da Cruz and Sofia, Marco, Amelia, and Mateo Monfiglio –, her two sisters, Mirta and Marta Carreras, as well as many nieces and nephews, who all love her and will miss her greatly.
