Maria Pelaez Obituary

Maria Jaquelina Pelaez was born March 22, 1952 to Pedro Julio Pelaez and Cleotilde Martinez and the eldest sister of 10 siblings. She worked as a dressmaker and was loved and known by many in her hometown Barahona, Dominican Republic. She always knew she wanted to create more opportunities and a brighter future for her and her children, so in the early 80s she immigrated to the United States and landed in the Big Apple; New York City. She lived with her partner and children in the Bronx up until early 2000s, where she then purchase a family home in Englewood, NJ. She resided here with her family until March 2022 where then Oakland Care Center became her home until the very end.

Maria loved to spend time with her loved ones and was also very generous to many. She donated to many organizations including St. Jude Children’s Hospital. She always enjoyed fashion and kept up with the latest trends. People always loved both her personality and style. 

Maria is the loving mother of four children, Teresa, Monica, Frank and Luisa. She also leaves behind her beloved on-going partner of 35 years, Felix. Her dear grandchildren, Griselda, Arisleida, Anexis, Kevin, Anabel and Jacob will miss her greatly. She also leaves behind many family members who love her dearly as well. 

After a long battle with Alzheimer’s Dementia, Maria passed away on Sunday, December 3rd 2023 at the age of 71 years old, peacefully at Oakland Care Center.
