Juanita Rivera

February 17, 1936 — April 1, 2021

Juanita Rivera, age 85 of Bridgeport, returned to the loving arms of the Lord on Thursday, April 1, 2021 at St. Vincent's Medical Center. She was born in Coamo, Puerto Rico; daughter of the late Felicita Miranda and Jose Luciano Gonzalez prior to relocating to The Bronx many years ago. In her spare time, Juanita enjoyed word searches, bingo, listening to the radio, and watching Spanish TV. She enjoyed looking her best; from her makeup and hair to her jewelry, everything was to be "on point." Juanita was known to enjoy eating poundcake, bananas and enjoying a good cup of coffee. Ocassionally she would venture to Atlantic City, where she enjoyed playing numbers and gambling every now and then. Juanita loved talking with her friends and family, and even more so, spending time “chilliando” with those she loved. She will always be remembered as a feisty little lady, very stubborn, no filter, with a beautiful heart full of gold. Juanita is the loving mother of Carmen Tirado, Migdalia DeJesus, Cesar Tirado, Jimmy Rivera and Evelyn Rivera; and the caring grandmother of 16 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her daughter, Dorothy Rivera. Family and friends are invited to attend Calling Hours on Tuesday, April 6, 2021 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Funeraria Luz de Paz, 426 E. Washington Ave. Bridgeport, CT 06608. Please explore her memorial page where you may share your memories, prayers, and so much more found EXCLUSIVELY at www.luzdepaz.com
