October 22, 1925 – July 16, 2020
Besaida Torres, age 94 of Elizabeth, NJ passed away on Thursday, July 16, 2020. Besaida was born on Oct. 22nd, 1925 in Trujillo Alto, P.R. She was one of 9 siblings. After marrying in Puerto Rico she immigrated to the U.S. in 1951. She was a talented seamstress for many years and then took time off to raise her 3 children. Besaida returned to work at age 57 and actually retired at age 84 where she was employed as an inventory specialist at Shopper's World in downtown Elizabeth. She later enjoyed visits to the senior center and cherished time spent with family.
Those who knew and loved her would describe her as resilient and feisty with a deep abiding faith in her Lord, Jesus. Besaida passed away peacefully in the home she loved and resided in for nearly 70 years. Her family and friends will miss her dearly and carry her in their hearts always. The family would like to express their deepest appreciation to her 4 angels who provided private care to Besaida in her final years.
