Obituary for Margarita Alganaraz (Narvaez)

August 7, 1925 – January 9, 2019
Haverstraw, NY formerly Harriman, NY

Margarita Alganaraz, of New Windsor, NY formerly of Harriman, Nyack, NY entered into eternal rest on January 9, 2019 at Joe Raso Hospice Residence, surrounded by her family. She was 93 years old.

The daughter of the late Genaro Dolores Narvaez and Margarita (Rosario) Narvaez, Margarita was born on August 7, 1925 in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Margarita was a retired Seamstress with Mori Lee Bridal in West Nyack, NY and a former Retail Clerk for Macy’s in the Nanuet Mall, Nanuet NY. But in her early career, she was a professional singer that toured Europe and South America.

She was an active member of the United Methodist Church of Monroe.

Margarita was the eldest of 6, and 12 years old when her mother passed away. Quickly becoming the matriarch of the family, she ruled and dominated, unapologetically with confidence and conviction demanding respect, which was rightfully deserved. She was strong and independent and always spoke her mind. The love for her family wore many disguises, but her heart could never be confused as small. Whether she handled you with a gentle touch or one not so soft, you knew her love was clear and unconditional. She enjoyed cooking for her family on any occasion and always set a table fit for a king. Margarita was an independent force of nature that always did things her way. She will be truly missed but her strength will live within us all.

Margarita was predeceased by her husband Carlos Alganaraz, her siblings Genaro “JR” Narvaez, Sonia Reyes and Anibal Narvaez. She is survived by her daughters: Rose Velez, Thais Ruis, Monica Alganaraz; her son: Adrian Alganaraz and his wife Susan Hagger; 14 grandchildren; and 19 great-grandchildren; her siblings: Violeta Caballero, Ada Roccio Rivera, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be held from 2pm-6pm on Sunday, January 13, 2019 at Quigley-Sullivan Funeral Home, Inc., 337 Hudson St. Cornwall-On-Hudson NY. A Funeral Service will be held at 10:30 am on Monday, January 14, 2019 at the funeral home. Interment will follow the Service at Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, Sleepy Hollow, NY.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Joe Raso Hospice Residence, 11 Stokum Lane, New City, NY 10956.
