Luisa Reyes Obituary

Luisa Aponte Hernández Reyes, born in Pedro Avila, Cayey, Puerto Rico, in 1942, peacefully departed this world on December 14, 2023, surrounded by family. She was the beloved daughter of Cruz Aponte Alvarado and Elisa Hernández Reyes. Former spouse of the late Lino Reyes Aponte.

Luisa was blessed with seven children: Miriam, Lino, Joseph (Christine), the late Enrique, Osbaldo (Junior), Israel (Tracy), and the late Eduardo. Her dedication to her family was unwavering and defined her life's purpose. Her memory lives on through her numerous grandchildren, including Nikole, Anaís Luisa (Ryan), Israel Antonio, Tia Marie, Amanda Cristine (Thomas), and her adored great-granddaughter, Kourtlyn.

A longtime resident of Jersey City, Luisa enriched the lives of those around her with her contagious sense of humor, culinary skills, and boundless affection for her children and extended family. Luisa had a long-standing career as a Creative Seamstress in the New York Garment Industry, where she worked for the designer Isaac Mizrahi. In her retirement years, she found solace and happiness in St. Petersburg, FL, surrounded by her beloved family.

In her passing, Luisa reunites with her parents, several siblings, Augustin and Roman, and two children, Enrique and Eduardo. Her loving siblings survive her: María, Israel, Mercedes, Ismael, Ernesto, Roberto, and Ilda, who will continue to honor her memory throughout their lives.

Luisa will forever be remembered for her warmth, love, and selflessness. Her absence leaves a void in the hearts of all who had the privilege of knowing her. May she find eternal rest and peace, and may her legacy of love and dedication continue to inspire generations to come. Rest in peace, Dear Luisa.
