Gloria Estel Santiago, 61, returned to the loving arms of the Lord on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 8, 2022, surrounded by the love of her family. She was born in Adjuntas, Puerto Rico, to the late Juan Rosado and Deluvina Torres.
Gloria was genuinely a generous person who unconditionally gave to all those around her. She was an active member of Iglesia La Hermosa, where she served the Lord in a variety of ways. She was a talented cook whose secret ingredients were a pinch of love and a dash of prayer. She was best known for her delicious pasteles that blessed every Thanksgiving table. Her pasteles were sought after by so many people they were willing to pay for them. Aside from serving the Lord her greatest moments were spent with her family, even raising other children.
Gloria leaves behind to cherish her memory her spouse Cecilio Santiago, her loving children Denise Fernandez Palacios and her husband Antonino, Damaris Fernandez and Jason Fernandez and his fiancee Jeanette Gonzalez, her 12 precious grandchildren and her adoring siblings Lucy Rosado, Juan Rosado, Miguel Rosado, Ana Rosado, Carmen Canales and Awilda Agosto and a host of friends and family that will miss her dearly.
Services will be held privately.
