Monica Liliana Amaro, age 71, passed away in Chicago, surrounded by her family on Sunday, November 4, 2018. Monica was born on December 29, 1946 in Santiago, Chile to Oscar Luis and Isabel (Isamit) Alvear.

Monica immigrated to the United States from Chile in 1966 with the hope of laying a strong foundation for her family. Monica worked as a hairdresser, waitress, nurse at Edgewater Hospital and most notably was a proud owner of Harrison Food Center on Chicago’s west side for over 25 years.

Monica was a strong woman with a generous heart and did whatever it took to ensure the happiness and success of her family. Monica was the light of any room and enjoyed dancing and singing to the traditional cuecas of Chile or the salsas of Puerto Rico. Above all else, Monica loved to spend time with her children, grandchildren, sister and nieces/nephews.

Monica is preceded in death by her loving husband, Pedro Amaro Caceres, and her brothers, Luigi, Patricio and Luciano. Monica is survived by her sister Elizabeth; her four children, John, Joe, Moniquita, and Peter; and six grandchildren.

Funeral services will be held on Thursday, November 8, 2018 at 10:00 AM at Our Lady of Mercy Church, 4432 North Troy. Burial will follow at Rosehill Cemetery. The family will greet friends at church on Thursday from 9:30 AM until the time of service.
