Santa Rodriguez, 100, of Jersey City, formerly of Camuy, Puerto Rico, entered into eternal rest on Saturday, May 15, 2021 surrounded by her loving and caring family. As a full time wife and mother, Santa lived her life full of compassion and love. She embraced everyone through unconditional love and excluded nobody. She always welcomed you with open arms, a kiss and a blessing. Santa was a devoted Catholic who lived her life the way Jesus Christ would have wanted. She prayed daily and kept everyone in her thoughts and prayers. Along with her other amazing qualities, she taught so many the power of forgiveness. Through her core values, she always witnessed the good in people even though they were unable to see it themselves. Santa will be dearly missed and her memory will last in our hearts. The amount of tears being shed by her family and friends are testaments to the amount of love they received from her.
Santa is the beloved mother of Jeremiah, Heriberto, Benjamin, Freddy, Georgie and Milagros; a devoted grandma to 13 cherished grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren and 6 great-great grandchildren.
