Obituary of Josefina Estela Lorenzo

Please share a memory of Josefina to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Josefina Estela Lorenzo was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, daughter and friend. She left this world suddenly on May 11, 2024 after gracing this earth for 72 years.

Born to Romulo Antonio Reyes and Estela Marina Ureña Alvarez November 3rd, 1951, and raised in Navarette, Josefina moved to Santo Domingo with her family, where she graduated as an Executive Secretary and worked at the Venezuelan Embassy. In the late 70’s, Josefina immigrated to NYC to be with her husband, Leoncio Lorenzo, where they built a life. Josefina gave her everything to raise her three children, Arnoldo, Sharon and Lorenzo, and helped to raise her grandchildren Max, Christian and Leonardo. After working for over 3 decades, Josefina retired to live a quiet life in Santo Domingo, finally realizing her dream to return to her homeland to spend time with her brothers, who knew her as “Estelita.”

A wake is scheduled for 4 - 8pm on May 15th, 2024 at the Riverdale Funeral Home on the corner of 214th Street and Broadway.
