MONROE TOWNSHIP - EVA LUZ HALLERAN died Saturday, October 6, 2018, at Preferred Care of Old Bridge. She was 73.
Born in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, Eva Luz Halleran (née Cabrera) spent her early years on the island and in New York City, when her mother joined her father there, five children in tow. She resided in Lakewood, NJ for most of her life, before moving to Monroe Township two years ago. In between, she lived with her beloved mother, the late Luz Cabrera, and traveled the country with her son, Michael, to whom she was a devoted mother. They were an inseparable, adventurous pair and spent their lives taking care of one another. He was her greatest joy in life - family was important to Eva and she also loved her sisters and brother dearly.
Eva was a U.S. Army veteran of the Vietnam War, having served with the Medical Corps. She also worked at the Letterman General Hospital in San Francisco, CA. She was proud of her service to the country as helping others was a lifelong purpose; she later served as a nursing assistant at two nursing homes. Additionally, Eva was a skilled bookkeeper and had an affinity for accounting practices, often providing services for family and friends.
Eva will be remembered for her wry sense of humor, generosity, love of baseball and sports, music, family vacations, trying new restaurants, and Christmas. She loved giving presents to her grandnieces and grandnephews.
Eva was predeceased by her parents Galo and Luz Cabrera; son, Michael Edward Halleran, in 2013; and her sisters, Alma L. Roman and Ada L. Rosa, in 2013 and 2017, respectively.
Surviving are her sister, Ana L. Córdoba of Monroe Township, and brother, Galo Cabrera, Jr. of New Freedom, PA, as well as nieces: Yvette, Lisa, Melissa, Cristina, Diana, and Gail; nephews: Eric, Alfred, Galo, Paul, Daniel "Danny," and Ricardo "Ricky."
