It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Ana Velasquez on Friday, September 1st, 2023. Our beloved mother was 63 years of age.
Ana was born on August 25th, 1960, in Ponce, Puerto Rico. She would then move to the USA in her 20s where she lived in Camden, NJ, for the last 40 years. She was a fun-loving, caring and strong-willed woman who loved being around her family. She was a devoted homemaker and an amazing mother to her children. When weekends came around, she would be blasting her favorite tunes thru the house while cleaning. She planted beautiful flowers and was always very proud of her garden especially her peach and apple trees. Ana would always be remembered for her sense of humor, her love for dancing and especially the great cook she was.
Ana will now be reunited with her beloved mother & father, Ramona Rosario & Francisco Velazquez, whom she loved dearly, in heaven. Ana is survived by her children, Brenda Robledo, Diana Hernandez, Lydia Robledo, Yasmin Velazquez, Gregorio Torres(& wife, Amalina Torres) & Joshua Hernandez.
