Rebecca Cacnio Obituary

Rebecca "Becky" Ruiz Generosa Cacnio, age 76, of Somerville, NJ; met with our Lord and Savior on November 22, 2023.  She was born on July 17, 1947 to Alfredo and Nieves in Zamboanga, Philippines. As the 2nd oldest of 10 siblings, she sacrificed her comfort and fulfilled familial duty to become a psychiatric nurse eventually settling in Jersey City and working at the Jersey City Medical Center (now The Beacon). Later on, she continued work at the Veteran's Hospital in NYC.  A classic Filipino tale of relentlessness, she worked hard to help her family find a better life in America.  Her home was open to all those who were in need and shared the same dream.  True to her name, she was generous in all aspects of her life and was the steadfast rock of the Cacnio family.


She is survived by her brothers and sisters: Ismael (Fe), Alfredo (Zenaida), Bernadette (and the late Haavard ), Nieves (Rogel), Carmen (Norberto), and Concepcion (Vincent) as well as her 22 nephews and nieces; and 5 grandnephews and 5 grandnieces.  Becky was preceded in death by her brothers Lorenzo, David, and Jose.
