Obituary

EMILIA PEREZ-VARGAS
SEPTEMBER 16, 1942 – FEBRUARY 15, 2019

“EMILY” OR “EMMI” WAS BORN ON SEPTEMBER 16, 1942 IN PUERTO RICO AND WAS THE SECOND CHILD BORN TO CARMEN PEREZ-VARGAS AND MAXIMILLIANO PEREZ. IT WASN’T UNTIL THE AGE OF 3 1/2 – 4 YRS. OLD WHEN SHE MOVED TO 11TH STREET, MANHATTAN, NEW YORK ALONG WITH HER OLDEST AND YOUNG SIBLING. HER MOTHER USE TO SAY, “SHE CAME BY AIR PLANE AND NOT BY BOAT.”
IN 1950 -51 THE FAMILY MOVED TO THE PATTERSON PROJECTS IN THE SOUTH BRONX – MORRIS AVENUE. THE FAMILY RESIDING IN THE SOUTH BRONX GREW TO INCLUDE 8 SIBLINGS. “EMILY,” ATTENDED JOHN PETERZENGER P.S. 18 ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, WILTON JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL, AND GRACE DODGE HIGH SCHOOL.
“EMILY” WENT ON TO MARRY ROBERT MALPICA AND GAVE BIRTH TO SEVEN CHILDREN. SHE IS REMEMBERED FOR BEING VIVACIOUS, FULL OF ENERGY, CURRIOUS, FRIENDLY, SMART, AND BEAUTIFUL. SHE WAS AHEAD OF HER TIME – AND IF THE OPPORTUNITIES WOULD HAVE BEEN AVAILABLE FOR A YOUNG GIRL FROM THE SOUTH BRONX, WITH HER MANY TALENTS, SHE COULD HAVE ACHIEVED REACHING HER HIGHEST ASPIRATIONS.”
FONDESS MEMORIES INCLUDE: OPENING WINDOWS AT HOME GROWING UP AND SINGING OPERA TO ENTERTAIN THE NEIGHBORS, ACTING OUT DRAMATIC PARTS TO ENTERTAIN HER SIBLINGS, CREATING PLAYFUL STORIES TO KEEP HER SIBLINGS ENTERTAINED, DANCING AND LISTENING TO ALL TYPES OF MUSIC, AND TOOK HER “BOBBY SOCKS” STYLE OF DRESS SERIOUSLY IN THE 50’S. WHENEVER THERE WAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE A PICTURE TAKEN SHE STRUCK A POSE.
“EMILY WAS FULL OF LIFE AND WILL BE REMEMBERED FOR THE BEST OF HERSELF.
SHE WAS EXPECIALLY CHERISHED BY HER DAUGHTER IRIS A. MALPICA-LOPEZ, HER SON ANTHONY MALPICA, GRANDAUGHER CASSANDRA LOPEZ HER GRANDAUGHTER’S HUSBAND, MOHAMMED SHAFIE.
WITH ALL OF OUR LOVE HER SIBLINGS, HER CHILDREN, GRAND CHILDREN AND GREAT-CHILDREN WILL FOREVER HOLD HER IN OUR HEARTS AND MINDS. WITH ALL OUR LOVE WE SAY GOODBYE UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN! REST IN PEACE AND GOD BLESS YOU.

The memories of our growing up will never be forgotten, your opera singing from open windows, your joy of listening to fifties rock music and R and B, your elegant dancing style, the fun we had at dances, your drama filled storytelling, the joy of living life when you were younger, and all of the memories that brought us laughter. I will keep you in mind and heart forever and ever. love you your sister Connie and love from your nephew Husain.

Rest Peacefully grandma! My favorite memories of you are when you were all dolled up, bright lipstick, perfectly poofed hair and ready to strut your stuff! I’m forever grateful my babies had their great grandmother and your love for my husband. More importantly, Thank you always for giving me my incredible mother. May you rest peacefully as we continue to have your memory live on!

Love,
Your Wobby
