Imelda M. Tressa

Imelda M. Tressa

Deeply loved mother, grandmother, confidant, sidekick and friend, 90.

We lost a good one this year. Our beloved mother and grandmother, Imelda Tressa left this world on Tuesday October 15th surrounded by her family at her home in Hackettstown, NJ at the age of 90. Imelda, born in Liverpool England on February 18th, 1929 grew up an only child in a household with kind hearted, intelligent, hard working parents, Kathleen and Joseph Barkley. In her early years she spent her time waiting tables at the local pub and studying to be a stenographer while living life in the city. She met her husband, while he was stationed with the Airforce in England who would later bring her to the United States. A place she would call home for the next 67 years. In America, Imelda toured and traveled before settling in Bloomfield, NJ with her mother and her beautiful daughter, Bernadette. Imelda lived and thrived as a single parent spending over 35 years as an executive secretary at Edwards and Kelcey in Newark and Morristown, NJ. Bernadette, her only child, would meet and marry Dennis DeBlasio becoming Imelda’s son-in-law. And in 1986, Imelda would celebrate her first and only grandchild and future sidekick, Devon DeBlasio. For the next 33 years Imelda helped support her family and raise her grandchild with a loving heart and spoiled hand. During her time on this earth, Imelda enriched so many lives as a friend, close confidant, pseudo-sister, and second grandmother. Imelda was a caring, outspoken, and sometimes stubborn woman who would always tell it like it was with honesty and vigor. Imelda loved a good laugh, a good cup of coffee, and a good glass of scotch. She was more than a mother. More than a grandmother. Imelda was there for you when it mattered most. It was much too soon for her to be taken from our lives, but she will continue to live on in our hearts. Imelda is survived by her daughter Bernadette DeBlasio, son-in-law Dennis DeBlasio, grandson Devon DeBlasio, daughter-in-law Jill DeBlasio, as well as all the close relatives, friends, and loved ones she cared for, inspired, and delighted. She has now joined her mother and father at rest and in peace.

Those who feel inclined can honor Imelda Tressa through donations in her name with American Humane (americanhumane.org) to help animals in need. A service to celebrate Imelda’s life will be held at 10:30 AM on Saturday, Oct. 19, 2019, at Church of the Assumption, 302 High St. Hackettstown, NJ 07840.

Wanda Y. Torres

Wanda Torres was born on August 29, 1964 in Bronx, New York. She passed away at the early age of 53 on Saturday, December 23, 2017 in the comfort of her home with her daughter and granddaughter by her side. 
Wanda was the daughter of Amelia Figueroa Navarro and the late Angel Luis Navarro. When Wanda was 15 years old she met her soulmate, Felix Torres, whom she spent her married life with for 26 years. God blessed them with two beautiful children, Tabitha and Sabrina. As a precious gift and a beacon of light to the family,  her grandchild, Raquel Torres was born on April 9, 2014.

Wanda was a beloved sister to her eldest brother Angel, and her two sisters, Mildred and Samantha, who will not be forgotten for their compassion and love. She also leaves behind a mother who loved her dearly. 

Wanda was a devoted friend to many who took time to listen and truly love and cherish the relationships and bonds she made over the years. 

Shortly after Wanda relocated to New Jersey from New York she obtained her CDL license. She later became a private bus driver with Cassidy Transportation where she worked for many years. This provided her the flexibility to raise her daughter Sabrina, who needed that extra love and attention that only a mother could provide. 

Life dealt Wanda many challenges throughout her life. In her later years she found peace in her rekindled relationship with God, which provided her peace and comfort in her final days.

Wanda cherished her time with her family and friends, but as many know, her granddaughter Racquel was the light of her life. She provided the love and inspiration Wanda needed to endure in her final battle. Although she may not physically be here to help guide Raquel through her journey in life, she will always be looking from above, loving and protecting her. She will always remain in her granddaughter’s heart throughout her life.
