Our loving mother, Maria Esther Rivera, died peacefully on February 14th, 2020, Valentine's Day.
She joins the love of her life, Jose Rivera, her husband, on a day that celebrates love. She was born in Santurce, Puerto Rico on September 20th, 1937, to her loving parents Eusebio and Maria Falcon. Maria (known by most as Esther) was raised with her five siblings Angel, Hector, Walter, Betty Diana and Nelson. Although she had resided in Florida since July, 1997, her heart forever remained in New York City, where she created her greatest memories. She is survived by her five children Iliana, Joseph, Danny, Aileen and Alana whom she loved fiercely and with all her heart. She was blessed with eleven grandchildren and seven great- grandchildren. Family was everything to her and she was blessed with her son-in-law Idoel Correa, daughter-in-law NIcole Xavier, son-in-law Jason Knowles and granddaughter-in-law Louise Correa. Our mother loved dancing, music, the beach, casinos, law enforcement television shows and spending quality time with her family. Our hearts will forever ache that you are longer with us. We find comfort that you are no longer suffering and are resting in peace with your loved ones in heaven. We will miss you always... Mommy, Mama
