On Tuesday, December 22, 2020, Gloria Jean Rodriguez, the adored wife and mother of three children and eight grandchildren, passed at the age of 70.

Gloria was born on December 14, 1950, in New York to Frank and Maxima Perez. She had one sister and three brothers. She was raised in Spanish Harlem and later moved to the Bronx. It is there that Gloria met Augusto Rodriguez. They were inseparable immediately. Augusto had recently migrated to America, from Ecuador and met the young woman who would love him and guide him to finding a new way of life. Always through hard work the two persevered. They were married on April 19, 1969. Eventually they would run a physically demanding business in the garment industry. They leaned on each other to make their business successful. They immediately started a family and had Jeanette and Kevin. With two young children, Gloria continued to push her husband in his business and be the shielding wife and mother she was known to be. Their child raising was not over. A number of years later they welcomed their second daughter, Annette. The birth of Annette completed Gloria’s kids. She was known to be strict, demanding, supportive, protective, and loving to her three children. Gloria wouldn’t have it any other way. She ruled out failure and instilled solid family values for her family.

In December 1979, Gloria and Augusto purchased a home in the Bronx. They settled in that home and created eternal memories for all their family and friends. Their children would grow up in that home and celebrate a lifetime of occasions. Gloria became Mama to Christian, Maya, and Megan. She was known as Grandma to Kaleb, Lucas, and Mathias and Gloria would gain another alias becoming Nina to Melanie and Alexander, aka CHAPO. She created memories that will never be erased. She was firm and could “crack jokes” like no other. A formal education and an education on the success and pitfalls of life was constant conversation in Gloria’s kitchen. There was never a dull moment. She made sure her children were prepared for anything life would challenge them with.

She made sure her family sat at the table for dinner and no one left until it was over. Saturdays were the day to clean the entire house and everyone had a chore. Sometimes there was fast paced Salsa or Motown music. Sometimes there was slow Bolero music playing. The pace of cleaning the house depended on the music MOM played that Saturday. Salsa and Motown music playing indicated it was a nice easy day. Slow, sad, Bolero music, meant we were in for a long deep cleaning day…. LONG! Gloria was known to throw long lasting parties for her family and friends that lasted until the last person wanted to go home. She took pride in cooking meals for enormous groups of visitors. Gloria was a welcoming host at her home and an incredible cook.

Gloria lost her battle with cancer, but before she left she made sure to cook one last Thanksgiving meal for her family. She spent her 70th birthday with her husband, children, and grandchildren. The night before her passing Gloria was sure to celebrate the birthday of her everlasting love, Augusto. She wanted to be home during her last days and was surrounded by her husband, children, grandchildren, son in laws, and daughter in law. She is no longer suffering and is in peace.

Heaven has a new valiant, loyal, loving angel and she will protect us like no other angel can.
