Obituary for America Perez

America Perez (lovingly known as Nena) was born in Havana Cuba on November 17th, 1938 to the late Santiago and Carmen Gonzalez. After growing up in Havana Cuba, Nena, her parents, and her siblings fled her beloved country to escape communism and provide a better life for her and her family in the United States of America. Nena and her entire extended family flourished in a country she so loved and cherished. Shortly after arriving Nena settled in Elizabeth, then to Warren before finally moving to Morristown NJ in 2017. Nena was a devoted wife to her husband and mother to her children. As the children grew older, she spent more time practicing her trade as a bookkeeper, where she started in Havana at age 15 working part time at her father’s dairy business. She was first and foremost for others, her husband and children, her extended family, and anyone else she had the genuine pleasure of meeting. Her caring and compassion for others were recognized by all who met her.

America Perez is survived by her husband Tomas Perez of 62 years, her daughter and husband Nieves and Wayne Ferdinand of Califon, her son Rafael Perez of Martinsville, her son and wife Thomas and Morena Perez of Gillette, her son Robert Perez of Martinsville, and her daughter and husband Claudia and Peter McGinley of Morristown. Also surviving are Nena’s sister Consuelo Figarola, sister and husband Marta and Louis Couto, 14 grandchildren, two great grandchildren and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews from her loving extended family.

Visitation will take place at Doyle Funeral Home, 106 Maple Ave., Morristown, NJ on March 15th from 4-8 PM. A service will be held at Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, 91 Maple Ave, Morristown, NJ March 16th at 10 AM followed by her interment at Holy Rood Cemetery, Morristown, NJ.
