Lourdes "Lulu" Gara

October 31, 1957 ~ March 16, 2022 (age 64)


Our dearly beloved Lourdes “Lulu” R. Gara peacefully joined our Creator on Wednesday, March 16, 2022, at the age of 64, surrounded by loved ones who will continue to honor her legacy by living their lives to the fullest.  "Lulu," as she is affectionately known by her friends and "Ludy" by her family, is a former teacher from the Philippines who is now a licensed Realtor in Jersey City, New Jersey.  Over the years, she shared her passion with the people and children she met.  The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to Lulu.   She is a dance enthusiast. She has a distinct sense of style that reflects who she is.  She enjoyed traveling with her friends.  She is a collector of anything cute, such as keychains, from her travels to various destinations.  She also enjoys taking photos and creating albums. A devotee of Our Lady of Perpetual Help that prays the rosary in everything she does, a practice she has followed since childhood.  She had an uncanny ability to find joy in the most mundane of tasks. Her cheerful demeanor was contagious to everyone she met.


"Lulu" will be remembered fondly by her son Riz (Arvey), siblings Rosalina (Nene), Yolanda (Yolly), Adoracion (Dory), nieces, nephews, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and a large number of other family members, coworkers, and friends.
