Eleonor Lopez, of Millville, passed away on October 4, 2017. "We are family", is the message that our mother always wanted to deliver. Mom lived her life as a fighter. There was nothing that you could tell her that would stop her from living her life her way. She was born in Utuado, Puerto Rico and moved to the United States. Our mother at the age of 74 decided to go back to college to get her degree in criminal justice. She was very involved in her church and loved teaching classes at the Bible Institute. Our mom did the best with what she had and will always be an inspiration to us. She was an absolutely amazing mother.
She is survived by her sons, Osvaldo Ortiz, Jr., Mirocles Ortiz, Jose Adrian Ortiz, and David Ortiz and her daughter Erlinda Cruz Ortiz. She is the proud grandmother of 16 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren which were the apple of her eye. Eleonor is also survived by her brother Joaquin Lopez and her sisters Cruz Lopez and Maria Morales. The legacy she left was that of family, unity, laughter, and love. She could lighten up a room with her smile and charm with her child like manner. She will be missed every day.
