Juana Pagan – On Friday, June 24, 2022, our beloved mother, Juana "Wanda" Pagan went to be with the Lord at the age of 72.
Juana was born on June 14, 1950 in Patillas, Puerto Rico, then moved at a young age to the United States. She worked hard all her life and had many jobs, including teacher's aide, but she was really known for working in Southern Kitchen where she knew so many people. Juana loved her family near and far. She loved to be outside in her garden, collected anything of Betty Boop, and always had her door open to anyone.
She is survived by her three daughters, Rosita and Oscar Rodriguez, Mary A. Pagan and fiancé Joel Maldonado, Sr., and Jeanette Rizzo; her companion, Israel Candelario; brothers, sisters, cousins, nieces, and nephews; 11 grandchildren; 15 great grandchildren; and one great-great grandchild.
Juana was predeceased by her husband, Ruben Pagan; first grandson, Jeremias "Junito" Cruz III; and her son-in-law, Anthony J. Rizzo, who are greatly missed and she is now with them in heaven.
Relatives and friends will be received on Thursday, June 30, 2022, from 10:00am until 11:00am at DeMarco-Luisi Funeral Home, 2755 S. Lincoln Ave., Vineland. A funeral service will be held at 11:00am with pastor Milka Rivera officiating. Burial will follow in Sacred Heart Cemetery, Vineland.
