mother figure to all. She lived her life unselfishly caring for others. As a child and adolescent,she grew up in Puerto Rico where she helped her mother, Fidela, who worked as a midwife.
Taty was a natural nurturer and an extremely hard worker. Taty moved to Staten Island and eventually settled in Mariners Harbor. She was devoted and committed to her family and her
faith. She raised her family alongside her husband, Daniel, as he pastored at Rehoboth Pentecostal Church. Children and caring for others were her joy, and she opened her home and
heart to her family, friends, and foster children. Taty spent a lot of her time in the kitchen,preparing meals that brought her family together. Her home was a place where anyone could
stop by and be greeted with warmth, love, a hot meal, and laughter. She showed God’s love in everything she did, leading by example, and shining God’s light to everyone who had the
pleasure of knowing her.Taty touched the lives of many, and her kind and good heart will be greatly missed. Taty lived by the following mottos she shared with us often; “it’s nice to be nice” and “do good today so you can be happy tomorrow.” Though she is departed from this world, her wise words and spirit live on in the hearts of her family and loved ones. During difficult times such as these, we find comfort in another of her encouragements she shared during especially difficult days; “One day at a time sweet Jesus.”
