Print
Livia Rosario Cruz Gago, age 92, born on April 8, 1927 in Lapa Furada, Portugal died on Thursday, December 26, 2019. She was predeceased by her spouse, Emilio Vieira Gago; her brother Armando; sister, Angelina and her grandson David and his wife Amelia. Surviving are two sisters, Julia and Isaura and two brothers, Albertino and Albino, all of Sao Mamede, Portugal; 7 sons and 8 daughters, 31 grandchildren, 34 great grandchildren, 1 great great grandson and 7 sons-in-law and 6 daughters-in-law.

She came to the United States in May 1974 where she began a new life for her family. She worked as a seamstress for many years in Long Branch. She was a parishioner of Star of the Sea, Christ the King Church where she attended Mass every Sunday.

Livia enjoyed long walks on the Long Branch boardwalk, playing cards, and spending time with all of her family. She was full of life, enjoyed telling jokes and never forgot to sing happy birthday to all of her family members. She was the matriarch of this very large family and will surely be missed.
