Miriam, the daughter of the late Maria Dolores Arroyo and the late Victor Lopez, was born in Manhattan, New York City, New York, and she grew up in east New York Brooklyn, where her friends knew her as “Snoopy”.
For Miriam, life may not have always been easy, but she always tried to make people feel special in any way she could and her abundance of love for family and friends knew no limits. Those people who made up Miriam’s circle, knew that they could count on her in a heartbeat for anything that was needed. Miriam, in her own style, reciprocated in ways that were incredibly unique to Miriam and in turn, became very meaningful to those who shared in her life. For Miriam, there was nothing that could ever be more important to her, than her family. Time spent with them, doing normal activities or special events, were worth more to Miriam than anyone will ever know. She treasured what it meant to be loved and to give love.
Predeceased by her sister, Milagros Ortiz, Miriam is survived by her two sons, Bolivar Cruz and his wife, Aya and Victor Lopez and his wife, Lisa; her five brothers and sisters, Victor Lopez, Evelyn Lopez, Anthony Lopez and his wife, Debbie Serrano, Lillian Morales and her husband, Luis Morales and Raymond Lopez and his wife, Elvira Lopez and her seven grandchildren, Victor Lopez, Jr., Nicholas Cruz, Joshua Lopez, Jeremy Cruz, Victoria Lopez, Wanda Cruz, Miriam Cruz and all her beloved nieces and nephews.
As per the regulations imposed through the State of New Jersey, there will now be a maximum of one hundred and fifty people allowed in the funeral home and the church at one time and face protection is required. We thank you for your understanding during this time of transition.
